Cubbies Originate Drills
Written by timanderson on April 20, 2018
In the latter half of March, the Cody American Legion baseball program – which has won at least a share of five straight Wyoming Single-A either North or Northwest or West Conference championships, including four consecutive outright, along with three of the most recent four such overall State crowns – officially got practice begun for 2018, albeit on a part-time basis. Led by 17th-year manager Bart Grenz – Wyoming’s reigning Legion-A West Conference and State Coach of the Year, the Cubs’ varsity along with JV B as well as C teams had each worked out together. They’ve since gone full-time back on Monday evening, April 9, after Spring Break.
Cody’s A group wound up with a total record of 51-20 by the 2017 ledger, going 15-1 come the conference to place atop five squads. Those particular Cubbies not only recaptured the specific eight-team Wyoming State tourney held by the Lovell Mustangs over their field at Cowley, Cody even was second of eight as far as half-a-dozen states come the Northwest Class A Regional Tournament from Eugene, OR, the third occasion to four seasons. That corresponding Cub roster lost a single kid who aged-out off the past 24-player varsity/JV gang. Cody’s A, B, then C crews bring back 24 of the 35 kids who could’ve resumed their prep careers combined – featuring 11 with varsity innings, about seven who were starters regularly, that same number who took various postseason All-Conference/All-State acclaim subsequent to the last campaign, as well as reportedly 12 newcomers for 36 by the whole program again. (Of those who didn’t return: six had spent at least some time with the A, five possessed starting experience, while four were decorated all-leaguers.)
The varsity Cubbies open their docket away by a triangular put on as far as the Montana non-American Legion Billings Emmanuel Baptist Halos which includes that state’s fellow actual Legion-A Gallatin Valley Outlaws of Three Forks among two Sundays from now, the 29th this month.
