Bay High Baseball uses the summer to look for starters
PANAMA CITY, Fla. (WJHG) - The Bay High School baseball team has headed back out to the diamond after a few months off during the pandemic. Head coach Andrew Starr says his main goals for the summer are to build strength on the team, because with only two returning starters, he needs to confidently fill the 7 other starting varsity spots.
“We look good. We look as good as we can. We are not really seeing competition-wise, so we don’t know if we could play some games tomorrow. I don’t know about that, but we are excited about the kids we do have. I told the kids, “It’s a great opportunity and time for them to be a tornado because we do have seven open spots on varsity that we need to fill,” so the kids are excited. They’re showing up working. Some of them are working elsewhere, so it’s all good. We have a couple of kids playing elsewhere. It’s good,” said Starr.
Coach Starr also says that in an effort to accommodate the kids who have jobs, and also in order to follow social distancing guidelines, half of the team has been practicing 5-7 p.m. while the other half practices 7-9 p.m.
