FAHS Baseball Season Underway

Posted on April 13, 2015 by


Spring sports are underway at Fleetwood Area High School, which means it is finally Baseball season.

“I’m really glad the season is finally here.  This is going to be my last year before I go off to college, so I’m really looking forward to it,” senior Tyler Emge said.

The Tigers finished last season with an overall record of 13-8 and a 7-3 league record. The Tigers finished the season strong, winning six of their last seven games by three or more runs.

“We were definitely playing some of our best Baseball last year at the end of the season.  It really helped us with our playoff push towards the end and fighting for a top spot in the division,” Emge said.

This season, the Tigers will have to deal with the loss of a good amount of seniors from last season due to graduation. Those former seniors played crucial roles in the offensive part of the game, as well as on the mound.

“We’re an extremely young team this year. We only have five seniors this year, as opposed to last year when we had nine, and eight of them were every-game starters,” junior Jake Wapinsky said.

Although the Tigers will be a young team this year and are not expected to do as well as they did last season, they will have enough pitching to lead them along the way. A few sophomores and freshman pitchers are going to be promising in the years to come.

“I definitely think that Fleetwood is going to be extremely competitive in the next year or so. We have a lot of underclassman that are all going to develop into good athletes once they grow some more and put on some weight over summer and fall next year,” Wapinksy said.
