Farmersville baseball fights strong in Grand Saline

by | Mar 11, 2021 | Sports

Following a short appear­ance at the Harmony Baseball tournament, the Farmersville baseball team entered this week with hopes of earning more experiences in live com­petition.

Only able to get three con­tests under their belt in a month, the Farmers were hap­py to get back on the field and compete against more teams, traveling to face Van Alstyne before competing in the Grand Saline tournament over the weekend.

Farmersville coach Jon Nordin said he appreciated all the pre-district experience the Farmers were able to partici­pate in this week, helping the team grow as a unit.

“I was really proud of our week,” Nordin said. “We played some good teams and had to play with pressure a lot. We were in situations that you can’t recreate in practice, and that’s why it’s so important that we play as many games as we can. We weren’t perfect, and have some getting better to do, but our guys did a lot of good things. We ended up playing six games in five days, and put 11 different kids on the mound this week. It took everybody.”

The Farmers opened the week March 2, traveling to Van Alstyne to face the Pan­thers. Facing a similar 4A op­ponent, Farmersville thrived in both areas of the game, domi­nating the Panthers en route to a 12-0 victory.
