During his team’s game against Sebring, varsity baseball coach Trey Hill kept telling his hitters to approach the ball and reminded his freshman pitcher to finish his pitches. The hitters listened and hit line shots and hard grounders. The pitcher listened and kept his pitches down. Add in consistent play by the Bulldogs defense, and the result was a 5-2 victory.
After his hitters went down in order in the bottom of the first with two fly outs and a ground out on four pitches, Coach Hill reminded his hitters to swing through the top of the ball. “Anybody can catch a fly ball; make them have to play the grounders,” he said. “If you hit the middle of the ball you have a line drive.”
