Baseball season approaches us and Truman can’t be more excited about what this season holds for our boys.
“We are expecting to be very competitive in every game we have this season,” Coach Corey Latrom said. “We have a group of great leaders in our senior class to go along with a small group of sophomores who have moved up to Varsity.”
Baseball boys are selling coupon books as a fundraiser to earn money for this season. Each player is supposed to sell a certain number of the books. They lost a lot of seniors last season, so this will be interesting to see what the season will take the boys this year.
“There are nine new members of varsity with six returning players. The beginning of the season will be very busy with six games in the first six days, including a double-header in Columbia on March 18th,” Lathrom said.
The coach has high hopes for this season and is expecting to see great things this season.
“Our pitching is the biggest question mark going into the season. We don’t have many pitchers with varsity experience so we are hoping we have a lot of guys who are able to step up and pitch successfully on the Varsity level. Our lineup is very deep this year and I feel we will be able to score a lot of runs to go along with our solid defense.” Lathrom said.
The Truman Patriots baseball team has a home non-conference game vs. Winnetonka on Monday, March 27 at 4:30 in the afternoon.
