HSBB: Brandon's Bash Brothers

HSBB: Brandon's Bash Brothers
BRANDON VALLEY, SD -

After a runner up finish a year ago, the 9-5 Brandon Valley baseball team is primed and ready to make another run. The Lynx are being led by the bash brothers.

Over his four year career, Lynx slugger, Jake Adams had hit a lot of souvenirs. He is batting .267 with four homeruns midway through his senior campaign and even his new skipper still gets impressed when he rips the cover off the ball.

"Yeah, when he hits them they go a long ways, there is no doubt about it, and that is rare," exclaimed Brandon Valley Manager Dallas Schneiderman. "Nobody else on the team and there aren't too many other players that we face that make me think if we make a mistake this pitch is gone," Schneiderman added.

"I don't want to go up there and act like I am going to hit a homerun every time, that is when you hit ground balls and pop out. I just try to stay composed. I know I can hit them out. If I have a good swing I know it will go out, so I don't worry about that," Brandon Valley Senior SS/P Jake Adams said.

Adams also doesn't have to worry about RBI's with his classmate Nic Peterson running the base paths. Peterson has been very effective at the plate with an average of .476, but it is what he does once he gets on that helps his squad the most. Thus far he is 16 for 16 when stealing.

"He has been the glue to start this year and now we are hoping some of the other seniors, like Jake who will be there, and some of the other guys to really start to take notice of what Nic is doing," Schneiderman said.

While the Lynx are taking notice of their leaders, the rest of the state is taking notice of them. Brandon Valley fell in the championship to Roosevelt last spring. Now all the conversation is about coming home with a title.

"Oh we have talked about it quite a bit," stated Adams. We have a lot of guys back from last year and we know what we need to get done."

"I'm expecting us to be back, but nothing is given," added Schneiderman. "They all want to get back, but it again ti won’t be given to us. Second place wasn’t fun last year and we don't want to repeat that."

Adams has committed to play JUCO ball at Des Moines Area College, while Peterson will play at USF. The Lynx will meet with Lincoln tomorrow night at Harmodon Park. The first pitch is set for 5:30.
