In a highly anticipated Opening Day matchup, the Fessy Bears defeated Derby Academy 12-0. After being shut out in the 1st inning, the bats came alive in the 2nd inning - the Bears scored 8 runs that inning. Wes N, Quentin D, Alex M, Jack LA, and Fletcher P delivered an RBI to put some runs on the board.
On the mound, Ian K and Lincoln H were outstanding for the Bears, limiting Derby to only a few hits in the entire game. Ryan H did a wonderful job behind the plate as our catcher. Defensively, Barrett W and Walker M split duties playing first base and both played a great game and completed multiple put outs of Derby batters. Max W and Alex L played excellent defense for the Bears in left field and at second base, respectively.
Late in the game, the Bears added some insurance runs. Pierce M had nearly a 10 pitch at-bat, fouling off many pitches before hitting a single and beginning the rally. Jackson R had some great at-bats and added an RBI of his own late in the game, too.
It was a great way to start the season, and the Bears are already looking forward to our next game!
