Winding up for a big game against Wakeland on Tueday, the baseball team can clinch a playoff spot by beating the Wolverines. The two teams enter Tuesday’s game with the Redhawks 1.5 games up on the Wolverines in the District 9-5A standings.

Stepping up to the plate, the baseball team hosts the Wakeland Wolverines Tuesday at 7 p.m. in a District 9-5A contest between the two teams at the top of the standings. Losing to Wakeland earlier this year, a win over the Wolverines would help the Redhawks clinch a playoff spot. 

“I think with what we’ve done this year, there’s no doubt in our minds that we are the favorites in the district,” senior Ben Anderson said. “But with the fact that we haven’t beat Wakeland yet, I think there’s a lot of people out there who still don’t know if we are the number one team, and without a doubt in our minds we know that is the truth.” 

Confident in their abilities, Tuesday’s game is the chance to prove who is the top team in the district. 

“Tuesday is gonna be a great opportunity to go out and show people that we are the number one team,” Anderson said. “And let us show what we are really capable of.”
