Boys Junior Varsity Baseball, Varsity Baseball · Diamond Devils Scrimmage a success!

Wednesday night (Feb. 8) the Blue Devils took to the baseball diamond in a pre-season scrimmage against the ECI Bulldogs.  The Blue Devils used seven different pitchers in their scrimmage with ECI.  They combined to limit the Bulldogs to just 1 run on 2 hits while striking out 9 with 5 walks.  “We threw a lot of first pitch strikes, but we need to continue to stay aggressive after getting ahead in the count”, head Coach Jim Simmons.  Statesboro scored 10 runs on 9 hits with two doubles and a home run.  Assistant coach, Russ Winter said “I was pleased with our percentage of quality at-bats”.  The night ended with an SHS victory over the Bulldogs with a score of 10-1.  The Devils will travel to Jeff Davis High School for their season opener February 15th.  The team’s first home game will be February 18th against cross-county rival Southeast Bulloch.  The first pitch is scheduled for 12:00 p.m. on the 18th!  Hope to see you in the stands!
