Cold weather hampering baseball team

The recent cold, wintry weather has been playing havoc with Sulphur Springs head baseball coach Jerrod Hammack’s plans.
    While the sleet and ice halted traffic in some places, it has kept the Wildcats off the baseball diamond.

    “We got to go outside Wednesday. Before that, we haven’t been able to practice outdoors in 10 days,” Hammack said.
    The Wildcats have only had one scrimmage in the last week or so.
    Sulphur Springs took a 20-3 decision at Terrell in their lone scrimmage this season, Feb. 8.
    “I thought we played with a lot of effort and execution. We are stressing quality at bats over batting average this year and as a team we reached our goal of 50 percent,” Hammack said. “Ben Brooks was dominant on the mound and we also got good performances from Hunter Coleman, Garret Hood, Kade Hudgins, and Hunter Elliott.  Defensively we played just about flawless and we ran the bases aggressively.  I believe this is a special group and I think we will surprise a lot of people this year.”
    The Wildcat varsity had their Tuesday scrimmage at Wylie East moved to today at 6 p.m. They are scheduled to host North Lamar at 6 p.m. Friday in their final scrimmage of the season.
    The Sulphur Springs freshmen will scrimmage North Lamar Saturday at noon with the junior varsity to follow with a 2 p.m. road scrimmage at NL.
    The regular varsity season begins Feb. 20-22 in Tyler.
