The Cane Bay baseball team simply couldn’t get over the proverbial hump this season. The Cobras were snake-bitten in tight games.
“We lost a number of close games this season where we just didn’t get the big hit or we would make an error at the most inopportune time that cost us,” Cane Bay coach Shane Todd said.
“We are disappointed in the results overall but this group was in every game with a chance to win late and we improved as the season went along.”
Coach Todd’s team finished 7-14 and missed the playoffs.
Among the group moving on is senior lefty Cody Maw, who had a mind-boggling stat line on his way to a 4-1 record.
Maw, a North-South all-star selection, allowed just two earned runs and 24 hits in 47 innings pitched. He fanned 50 batters and walked just five in fashioning a 0.30 earned-run average. He also batted .276.
Other seniors were outfielder Jacob Page, third baseman B.J. Thompson, infielder Trey Burdette and infielder Christian Dutton. Page batted .288 while Thompson hit .246 with a team-high 12 stolen bases and six pitching appearances.
Sophomore Tanner Coleman logged 33 innings on the mound and had a 2.59 ERA. He also led the team in hitting with a .361 batting average and 11 RBIs. He also scored 13 runs.
Junior Billy Detyens had a .425 on-base percentage and walked a team-high 12 times. He scored eight runs.
