Fall Ball

Jaxon King

Fall is usually known for trees changing colors, Friday night football, or Halloween. But Wayne City has fall baseball. Baseball here hasn’t been taken seriously in a long time, but after having a positive season last year, the Indians are ready to do it again. Having a new coach with a new game plan can change the way they play.


While only returning four starters, the Indians are very young with very young potential. With only three seniors and three juniors this year, with five of them starting the underclassmen will have to prove themselves. Getting a new coach will let the underclassmen develop with the coach, where they can learn from him and grow too.


Starting off the season with a nine to three win over Brownstown was a real confidence booster. After losing five seniors, the team wasn’t expecting to be great, but realizing they could win made them believe a bit more. Cole Clark said, “Beating Brownstown made us realize that we could win without having the old seniors. I think we can definitely prove people wrong and win some games this year.” The Indians then traveled to Webber and lost 11-2, but then bounced back with a big win over Cisne, 10-2. Dane Horton hit his first homerun against Cisne and he said, “It was such an awesome experience, especially since it was a grand slam! I hope there are many more where that came from.”


The Indians will play Woodlawn on Sept. 7 at Woodlawn, and they play Cisne again at home on Sept. 12. Come support the Indians as they try to advance to 3 and 1. Go Indians!
