At 38-3 with State and National Rankings, most people assumed the Ads would be in Murfreesboro vying for the State TSSAA Championship. If it were only that easy based on record and rankings. And in fact it is interesting as the Ads get MORE press for not making it.
Rankings aside, Coach Buckner reiterated again tonight on the Post Game interview with Radio 105FM, Ralph Skinner and Eric Gerhart that defense and great pitching has made up for the Ads low run output. Eric pointed out a great stat…..this season when the Ads score less than 4 they are 12-2. That is strong. Grinding, Making Plays combined with a Key Hit will take you a long way. I do not know the Team Stats. But I believe there are few High School Teams that have the “DEPTH” the Ads have. Coach mentioned that tonite also. Think back through the games the number of players that have contributed when called on to do so. Offensively or Defensively or ON the Bump! The underclassman being guided by the Senior Leadership has put this team in a place where they can make some “noise” in the Boro. And speaking of Seniors Lots of NEW Blondes will make showings tomorrow night at Graduation.
A LONG WAY is still left in the Journey for another “Ball on the Wall”. Enjoy the moment today and then start preparation for the next Step. The BAR is High and this 2019 Admiral Baseball Team is up to it!
