This year’s baseball season came to a close after the Jaguars’ 0-2 series loss to Corsicana in the first round of the playoffs . With an overall record of 19-11-2, this has been one of baseball’s most successful seasons.

However, with this year’s team being comprised mostly of seniors, next year’s team will be mostly newcomers to the varsity stage and will need to work hard to get back to the playoffs. It takes a lot of work to win games, and it is evident that there will always be something they could have done better during a game.

Each baseball player can add or subtract value to a team. With teamwork being an important aspect of baseball, it is important that each player is skilled and trusting of his teammates.
