Baseball is just around the corner and we are looking forward to what our young team has in mind this year. This will be Coach Fiorella’s second year with the team and he is really getting to know the capabilities of his team. He led the Red Devils to a 13-17 record in 2022 season, doubling the team’s win total from 2021. We look forward to seeing what this young experienced team is capable of this season.

Last year the team’s three leading hitters were Eli Hampton, Connor Hallmark, and Cayden Ray. But the 2022 team has the potential to be an excellent up and down the order this year. Everyone saw a spectacular performance from the young and rising freshman, Eli Hampton. Eli had six home runs in 2022 and finished batting .468 in his eighth grade season. He was part of the All-District and All-Region Teams before even entering high school. Everyone is looking forward to watching the Red Devils defense this year, though they were a little shaky last year. We are looking forward to fans to see how the uprising eighth graders and freshman are going to do this year, as we look forward to seeing this team compete at a high level. This team should have a lot of confidence going into the season.

OHS Baseball tryouts are Monday the 13th and Tuesday the 14th. If you have not been practicing in the offseason with the team, they practice Mondays and Wednesdays after school until 5:30 PM. They also practice on Saturdays at 9:00 AM on the football field. If you are unable to attend offseason workouts, remember tryouts are on February 13th and 14th.

Go Red Devils!
