Most quality Baseball Teams have one or two outstanding pitchers. Some have outstanding hitting and others defend really well.
This version of the Baseball Oracles create ways to score runs that are not considered “normal”.
“I have always been a big believer in “small ball.” said Coach Ryan Long, “we bunt, we run, we take the extra base and we try to get our opponents in difficult situations when we are on the bases.”
If you have watched this Oracle Team you have probably seen them score two runners on one squeeze bunt. It has happened multiple times this season and Coach Long believes it will continue. “Our players believe that we can manufacture some runs and that is reflected on the field with our Stealing bases and bunting the baseball in tough situations.” Long continued, ” You cannot always rely on the extra base hit and against quality teams with quality pitching every Run you can create is important.”
Coach Long continues his winning ways with a very young group that is led by Seniors, Cade Murray, Brent Bella, Billy Bennett and Ian Chapman.
Currently the Oracles stand at 14-5 and are ranked #9 in Class 2A.
