The MHS Baseball team proved to be a dominant force last year, ending with a season record of (16-2). This year, the Buccaneers are geared up and are ready to finish what they started. However, with a new season, comes new responsibility and new rules.

In the 2011 season, the Bucs won the Henlopen North Conference after defeating the Cape Henlopen Vikings with a final score of 12-2.  The Bucs advanced to the second round tournament but their success was cut short after losing 8-16 against Caesar Rodney (16-2).

“Last year we had what we needed,” said shortstop Cesar Vazquez. “We just didn’t get the job done.”

Returning key players this year are pitcher Nick Grant, catcher Nathan Poore, and shortstop Cesar Vazquez. As for this year’s changes, Nick Brannon, who was the teams assistant coach for the past eight years is now the head coach.

“This year our coaching staff is completely in tact,” said Head Coach Nick Brannan.  “The team has a lot of experience and they understand what it takes to be competitive.”

Athletes in the Delaware Interscholastic Athletic Association will also see a new rule applied for the players safety. Every player will be required to use a batted ball coefficient of restitution (BBCOR) bat. The BBCOR bats are expected to reduce the risk of injuries to the players.

“I believe that the rule will have an affect on our game,” said pitcher Nick Grant. “It’s good for  the pitcher, but for the batter, the ball doesn’t have the distance.”

The Bucs will face off against Laurel High School on Thursdsay, March 22, at 4:15p.m. The game will be held at Laurel High School.

“I expect us to be competitive, just as long as we maintain our focus” said Brannon. “We’re in a position where we have to be ready to come to the field. Our goal is to clinch a State Tournament berth and contend for the Henlopen North Conference.”
