Being one game shy of the playoffs in the spring of 2012 season, the Skippers Baseball team has no plans of missing their shot of glory this coming spring.
With a record of 15-27-0, the team had walked out last spring hanging their heads and missing the post season by the skin of their teeth.
This year not only are the spirits high and renewed, but a new head coach by the name of Scott Tesluck takes control.
Due to the late signing of Tesluck, the Skippers missed out on recruiting opportunities which led to the open tryouts that were held on Sept. 3-6.
Those trying out worked with the team at Sanborn Park in Port Huron.
Cameron Ciaciuch, a former player for the Skippers and volunteer assistant coach for the coming season, says, “Just by watching these guys play, there’s obviously talent.”
Returning players consist of Mitch Houle and Jake Hornbacher on 1st base, and left-handed pitcher, Austin Ames.
