As the Rebel baseball team progresses their season, they’re fighting to secure a spot in the district playoffs. Their current record is 12-3. They recently defeated Gautier in their first district game.

   As they continue to better themselves for future games, the team is still focusing on the fundamentals.

   “We just hit everyday, take ground balls, make sure our fundamentals are right,” junior Klay Fryfogle said.

   The team is also working on improving not only themselves but as a team.

   “Take more ground balls and work on bunt and defense.” sophomore Gage Reeves said.

   Some players such as junior Bubba Herrington have a few goals set for himself.

   “ Personal goal is to win the state championships and be the best team in Mississippi,” Herrington said.

   With the rest of the season ahead, the team has a confident outlook toward the rest of their games.

   “I think we’re all just getting started, and we’re going to keep getting better and build on what we’re doing,” junior Tate Davis said.

   Be sure to go and support our Rebel baseball team at Claude Passeau Field this Saturday against St.Patrick. During spring break, the Rebels will host Vancleave on March 29 and Hattiesburg on April 2.
