Lynn Haven, FL---A baseball practice indoors is better than no practice at all. Certainly Rutherford head coach Jon Hudson will tell you that.
Coach Hudson taking his Rams over to the indoor facility in Lynn Haven, Fusion Fitness Center, to get his guys some swings in the batting cages.
The Rams, who's playoff opener has been pushed back from Wednesday to Thursday now, taking some swings to try and stay sharp as they prepare for the home game in the 5A region quarterfinals against Suwannee.
"Yeah well we're used to being indoors." coach Hudson told us as his team swung the bats at Fusion. "It's been a wet spring for us. We're either in the gym throwing tennis balls or hitting in the indoor facility here. It's nothing new for our guys, they just need to swing the bats, they know what they need to do. So indoors is not that bad of a situation for us. I have to admit I did check the weather in Live Oak and it's raining over there as well. So there's nobody getting ahead of anybody here. We'll be ready to play whenever we get the chance to get on the field."
As for Mosley, who fell 2-1 to Rutherford in the 5A-1 district title game last Thursday, it's game at Wakulla is still on for Wednesday night. That from Mosley head coach Todd Harless. Wakulla's coach telling him Tuesday the field over there dries out rather quickly, and they remain hopeful they can play Wednesday.
Harless says since the batting cages at Mosley are covered, his players were also able to get in some work Tuesday, despite the bad weather. As coach Harless puts it, at this time of year, you're either ready or you're not, and he believes given the strength of his team's schedule this season, it's ready for the postseason.
