I am so excited to report that the Mustangs defeated Bay City in the regional quarter-finals this past Thursday and Friday. Thursday night's game was awesome. There is a "run rule" in high school baseball which states that after 5 innings, if one team is leading by 10 or more runs, they call the game. The game ended after the 5th inning on Thursday with a score of 11-0. Our pitching was amazing, and everyone was hitting the ball really well.
With this win, we advance to the regional semi-final playoff. From what we've been told, only 3 teams in Friendswood Mustang baseball history have advanced this far. It's an exciting time for the team! We will be playing Austin McCallum this coming week. The details of when and where are not ironed out yet, but it will be quite a drive to meet in the middle. So, we are preparing for a road trip! Since I do not have to work this coming Friday, I am planning to take Elise with me. She is going to be so excited. We are getting together to grill steaks with the coaching staff and their families tonight to discuss all the possibilities of where we could play our next series. I'm hoping they will decide on a Friday/Saturday playoff due to the distance we will be traveling.
