The youth and inexperience of the DeSoto County baseball team showed itself in the game this past Monday in North Port. Playing a 12:30 p.m. contest with a couple hundred students around the fences and in the stands, the Bulldogs kept the game close for four innings before North Port pulled away with a 6-1 win. The game was played in a constant drizzle that caused a delay in the fifth inning so the mound could be raked and covered with quick dry. The junior varsity game scheduled for 3:30 p.m. was canceled along with the tennis match that the Bulldogs were coming to North Port to play.
“We’re young. Only our shortstop (Garrett Anderson) has played on varsity before this season,” said head coach Trey Hill. He’s been on varsity all four years but the other eight players are in their first season here.”
