One year ago, the weather was in the 80’s and Baseball was in mid-season form. Move the calendar up one year, and Winter still has a firm grip and has prevented the Camels from getting on their field to date.
Week One should have seen the Camels play a total of three games before heading to Louisville for one of the states most foremost baseball programs Invitational Tournament. Instead, winter weather cancelled all three games and left the Camels inside the gym and ill-prepared for the competition that they would face when headed south.
The Camels would face three opponents from South-Central Kentucky who have been able to get on the field, playing a combined total of 18 games between them. It amounted to a very tough task for Coach Scott Schweitzer’s club. The Camels lost to their three opponents, South Oldham, Bullitt East and state powerhouse Pleasure Ridge Park.
Though the 0-3 start to the season was not what the Camels had hoped for, it did allow the Camels to play 19 players, all of whom showed signs of their contributions to the coming season.
Week Two is not starting off promising. A Winter Weather Warning is set to start the week off with what will likely turn into another week inside the gym and not yet able to see the white lines of Tom Mohr Stadium. Be sure to stay posted to game schedule updates, and come support your Camels once the weather let’s loose it’s grip of our field.
