Small Ball Continues to be Philosophy for Central Baseball

Dropping four games where the team could only muster a total of four runs, the Central baseball team will need to have a strong homestand this week to earn a higher seed in the upcoming Iowa Conference tournament. Head coach, Adam Stevens said that while the pitching has generally been there in the past for his team, making it unnecessary to score a boatload of runs, he would still like to see things sharpen up on offense. Stevens added that you don’t have to have a bloated batting average to be effective. The Dutch coach explained that making a diving stop on defense to save a run is the same thing as earning an RBI on offense. Central next hosts Buena Vista this Friday and Saturday for a four-game series.
