ADM's high school baseball team celebrates as they upset Harlan in the District Finals, sending them to the state tournament with a record of 13-17.

High School Baseball has been post-poned until June 1. Players and coaches have been patiently waiting for that date to come in the hopes of finishing what’s left of their 2020 season. Now, as it gets close to game time, the guys are ready to play.

Seniors Kaden Sutton and Chase Anderson are awaiting their senior seasons. Both Anderson and Sutton seem to be confident in their chances to play this season. “I am very excited for the season. I am pretty confident that we will be playing.” said Sutton. 

Both the seniors and the team are ready to go. ” We are prepared. Most of the team has been out playing and staying fresh.” said Anderson. Right now, the kids are on their own to practice. Without the help of their coaches, players do their best to practice the basics of the game: hitting, fielding, and throwing.

The main goal for this season is nothing other than winning a state championship. In their previous season, the Tigers made a run for the tourney upsetting Harlan in their district Final game. Harlan had been to state the past 7 years in a row, entering the finals 4 years in a row. ADM entered the tournament with a 13-17 record and battled the number 1 rated team in the state but ultimately fell short of a victory in the first round. “Last year we saw how good we could be at the end of the season. Every one knows what it takes to get back and go even further than last year.” said Sutton.

Baseball is not a joke to the Tigers, especially not for these seniors. They love the game and would give anything for the chance to play a final season. “Baseball is my favorite sport. I love everything about it. It’s so much more than just a game to me. It’s a blessing every time I step on the field and I would love the opportunity to play my senior season.” said Anderson.
