Redhawks baseball has a chance to prove themselves Friday as they are set to take on the Wildcats for the second time this week. The first time the two teams met each other, the Redhawks lost 3-1.

Baseball hopes to take the title at the Tourney of Champs Thursday through Saturday. The team plays its first games against The Colony and Newman Smith on Thursday at Panther Creek High School.

“I hope we are more selective at the plate and are better overall at offense,” junior Jack Moran said. “We need to play with high intensity and continue to pick up each other as teammates.”

Moving into Friday the team will take on Sherman High School at Reedy beginning at 3 p.m.

Friday the boys also get to play on the big field, traveling to the Frisco Rough Riders Stadium to take on Reedy at 8 p.m.

“It is very exciting to play at the big stadium like Dr Pepper Ballpark,” senior Thatcher Benson said. “With it, brings us seniors our last time playing there makes it more special.”

According to Benson, even with a capacity of 10,316 fans, the big field does not bring any pressure.

“No, I feel like it doesn’t add too much pressure,” Benson said. “We treat it as just another game. We are going to go out there and compete no matter when or where the game is.”
