Pierre Baseball Looks To Youth For Future Success

Wednesday, May 27, 2015

After finishing 3rd at the State A Baseball tournament on Monday, the Pierre Spring Baseball program is looking ahead already to the 2016 season.

Pierre loses six seniors who all played an integral part in the team’s success throughout the programs first three years. Though those seniors & the talent they bring to the diamond will be missed next season, Coach Steve Gray said its time to rely on the younger talent to lead & bring success to the program.

Pierre Baseball Claims Bronze

Tuesday, May 26, 2015

The Pierre Spring Baseball season came to an end on Monday afternoon first falling to the Brookings Bobcats in the State A Semi-Finals but later rallying to defeat defending champion SF Lincoln in a rain shortened contest to claim the third place trophy.

Pierre, who came in as the tournament’s top seed, was shut down against the Bobcats in their first game of the day. Bobcat pitcher Kyle Krogman tossed a complete game three hitter & shut down one of the more prolific offenses this season. Pierre mustered just six base runners in the semi-final game & reached third base once.

Pierre, however, bounced back in their second game of the day defeating SF Lincoln 4-2. The Patriots struck first in the top of the first with a sacrifice fly. Pierre matched the run in the bottom of the frame & scored the next three runs. Leading 4-1 in the top of the 7th, the Patriots began to rally scratching a run across before Mother Nature interfered & the state tournament officials called the game.  

Brookings would go onto to defeat Mitchell in the State Title game later in the evening by a 4-1 score. Pierre finishes the 2015 season with a program record 23 victories, a Region 3A Title, & a third place trophy from the State Tournament.
