Fleetwood Baseball Just Misses Playoffs

Posted on June 4, 2015 by


The Fleetwood Tigers Baseball team finished the season 8-10 (5-5 in league play). The team scored a total of 77 runs and let up 94.

The Fleetwood boys missed District and County Playoffs this year for the first time in four years. They finished fourth in Berks II, just ahead of Conrad Weiser and Schuylkill Valley, and just behind Berks Catholic, Twin Valley, and Hamburg.

Ryan Scepanzky and Zach Koenig were the team’s two main starting pitchers.

They also had Bryce Hawkins, Ryan Miller, Frankie Talarico, and Ryan Raudenbush in relief, as well as Jake Wapinksy in to close.

The team struggled this year at the plate, scoring only 77 runs, which is one of the lowest totals in the county. They let up only 94 runs for the year, which is ranked somewhere in the middle in the county.

The Tigers could have made playoffs based on a promising start, but losing 8 out of their last 10 games ended their season. They were tied for first for most of the season in their league with Berks Catholic.

The boys had some good games though. They beat second-ranked Twin Valley during the season and Section I Berks Champ Exeter also. They beat third-ranked Hamburg for their first win of the season back in game two.

The Tigers, however, just could not keep it going for most of the season. They lost three out of their first four games, then five in a row.  After that, they wrapped up their season losing eight of their last ten.

All in all, it just wasn’t the Tigers’ season this year. They will be back with a young team next season.
