JV Baseball Shocking Turnaround

GRAPEVINE, Texas – The 2011 Faith Christian (Grapevine, Texas) JV baseball team, a young and inexperienced team, appeared to have no chance at competing. After a 0-4 start this season, the team made a miraculous turnaround going 4-0 to start district and finishing district play 5-3 and the season12-15. Head JV Coach Michael Roye discussed his players’ performance and prospects for next year.

The players did not get to play any pre-season scrimmages and lost their two top freshmen to the Varsity team. “I think that contributed to our slow start. We tried quite a few different lineups early in the year in order to experiment with people playing various positions, and we were also trying to figure out where each player would help the team the most in the batting order. After a couple of weeks, the coaches had a better idea of who could do what, and the players also started to understand their roles on the team better.” (more…)
