    Baseball starts this week!!!

    For many people across the state, the new year brings not only a hope for a better future, but the start of a new baseball season. The first week back from Christmas break is the jumping off point, a point at which each team dust off their cleats and rubs a little oil on their gloves. Rogers Hornsby once said "People ask me what I do in winter when there's no baseball. I'll tell you what I do. I stare out the window and wait for spring." I feel the same way Mr. Hornsby, the same way. Once spring rolls around it means the slate is wiped clean, the past is over and everyone is undefeated. It is the time when "next year" becomes "this is our year," and while the start of the high school season does not fit into the traditional spring season, it hold the same significance to those who take the field in the bitter cold of early January.

    With that being said... I want to hear predictions for State Champs come May.
    Mine will come with little knowledge of what certain teams are returning, so please feel free to let me know if I am way off base, because I am going on historic tradition and last years finishes.

    5A-Destrehan
    4A-Sam Houston
    3A- Parkview Baptist
    2A- Sterlington (Wish I could say Menard, but I don't think they will get it done.)
    1A- St. Edmund
    B- Oak Hill
    C- Reeves

    I love HS baseball but I hated practicing this early in the year. As cold as it is now, about the only thing you can do is run and throw the ball in the gym.

    An 11-year old team asked me to coach them this year. We had a practice yesterday in our arctic weather here in Ruston. Eight of the ten players showed up. Amazing. Had a great practice.

    I have a vested interest in the Benton team this year. I am helping with their field. We got a beautiful stand of ryegrass out there.

    Wish I could say the same. I put out 150 pounds on our field at Plainview and it rained that night and washed all down into the leftfield corner.

    Did you seed the entire field or just the infield? We put out 1000+ lbs. I'm going back to give it some fertilizer soon. At least before the home opener.

    The whole field... class C with no budget and no community support. Coming out of my pocket for what we put down already.

    What school BLUE? What you gotta do is find one business man with deep pockets that loves baseball. Tough to do, but that is how I've seen it done here. Concentrate on your infield. If I can offer some advice I would be glad to help.

    Minden will make some noise in 4A.

    Lost to Holy Cross in the quarters last season, and have a better team coming back.
