TEXAS – The Bronco baseball team swung into the new year in the L.D. Bell Tournament.

Mustang began the new season off with a two-day tournament in Texas last Friday and Saturday. The Broncos went 1-3 in the tournament.

“We didn’t do very well. We’ve got a lot of work to do,” Mustang coach Scott Selby said.

Mustang started off the season with a 12-0 win on Friday.

The Broncos was then defeated in the second game of opening day by a 3-1 loss.
Mustang’s second day of the tournament was swept clean. The Broncos lost to Southlake Carroll 8-6 and then fell to Aledo 3-2 on Saturday.

“It looked like we hadn’t been on the field very long,” Selby said. “As bad as I felt we played we were in the game in all of them.”

Early in the season Mustang is still changing lineups and moving people into different positions.

“We’re trying to find out who can do what,” Selby said.

In Texas the Mustang mound was fairly effective.

“Our pitchers did really well,” Selby said.

Mustang has a load of upperclassmen and could have as many as eight seniors on the starting lineup. However even some of the seniors and upperclassmen are still adjusting and learning.

“We got a lot of upperclassmen that didn’t handle situations well offensively and defensively,” Selby said.

The Bronco baseball team will host Ponca City in district play on Friday at 5:30 p.m. where they will open up their
new turf infield.

“We’ll have to do some different things against Ponca City. We don’t have it figured out,” Selby said.
