While everyone else is relaxing over spring break, baseball is at work. Starting Saturday at Richland High School, baseball will be playing all throughout spring break.

The next week consists of Richland away at 3 p.m., Coppell away at 5:30 p.m., McKinney North at home at 7:30 p.m., and Wylie East away at 7:30 p.m.

Due to baseball not having off spring break, some players will be missing games.

My policy for missing games is the same for the entire season,” head baseball coach Jason Wilson said. “If a player misses a game, then that player will not play in the next game.”

Freshman pitcher Cameron Pool says he’s been preparing for the spring break games.

“I’ve been going to batting cages with my dad and going 100 percent in practice to prepare for the week,” Pool said.

Last week, varsity went 4-1-1, bringing the team’s record to 10-3-1 on the season so far. The boys beat Rockwall 8-5, beat John Paul 8-6, dominated Austin Westlake 12-0, and beat Berkner 16-4. They tied Jesuit 9-9, and lost Plano West 3-1. With Wilson in his first year as head coach, he’s very confident with the teams and the outcome.

“If we stay focused and hungry, we have good baseball players that should perform well all year,” Wilson said.
