The White Pine High baseball team held its opening tryout session Saturday, Feb. 27.

“Last year we had a successful season,” Coach Quinn Ewell said as the first four players to practice ran drills on the Ladycats’ championship basketball court.

The team finished 11-7-2 overall last season, and 6-6 in league play.

Ewell  had some roster concerns approaching this season, at times struggling to get enough of his players to return. He also wants to bring back senior league baseball to fill the gap between little league experience and the high school game.

“We have enough to play this year,” Ewell said. “We need to develop and get players to play the game of baseball. I just need to work on fundamentals. We’re fairly young.”

The Bobcats travel to the Cougar Baseball Classic tournament in Laughlin on Friday, March 11 to open the season.
