Lynn Haven, FL---Coach Todd Harless and his staff took to a wet and soggy field over at Mosley's campus as they worked to get their guys ready for what's next on their path to the Final Four. Thursday night, the Dolphins survived a tough playoff opener at Wakulla, an 8-7 10 inning win.
That puts them into the region semi's against the rival Rutherford Rams, who beat Suwannee 3-1. This afternoon the 'Fins back in the batting cages, still unable to practice on the field which still is very wet and in fact puddles dominate that landscape.
"You've gotta be able to fine tune your skills, get the reps in the cage, be able to throw a little bit," said Harless. "The pitchers need to run a little bit after they throw. So it's been real frustrating. but I know over in Springfield right now it's wet over there too. So we're all gonna do what we can do to get the guys in. Like right now we've got the guys are hitting in the cages, and they're throwing out there on the football field before the football team practices because they're a little high and drier than we are."
The Rams will host that region semifinal Tuesday night, hopefully at Shamplain which should dry out in time.
That will mark the 4th time these two rivals face each other this season. Mosley won the two regular season meetings, the Rams won the district title game.
