May 18: This Week in Baseball

Highlights and updates from the desk of Head Coach Mike Hansen featuring games from Monday, April 18th through Wednesday, June 3rd.

LAST WEEK (5/18/2015 - 5/24/2015) 
The official regular season has come to an end with our series with Rockford this week.  Our last three OK-Red series' saw the boys play very competitively only to come up a little short in each one.  West Ottawa ended up winning the league this year with a 12-3 record followed by Rockford at 10-5 and then Grandville at 9-6.  We played each of these clubs very evenly but were unable to get the key hit or play that eventually decides most every ball game.  We ended the OK-Red season at 3-12 along with East Kentwood

5/18/15Rockford (2)Home 4:00
5/20/15RockfordAway 4:30

We are 12-14 overall and with the exception of a 10-0 loss to Grandville and an 11-1 win v Reeths Puffer, we have played everyone evenly.  So it stands to reason why we would be very close to .500.  In High School baseball you don't have the luxury of a long season for your team to get on a roll.....but it's never too late - we still have the state playoffs
