This baseball season might have not gone the way the Falcons have hoped, but there were many players to highlight for their success during the season.
First off, let's start by taking a look at our leading batters. Our top 3 batters include Jake Tandy('22), Lucas Drake('23), and Giovanni Munoz('22). These 3 players helped all year with clutch hitting and getting on base. Lucas lead the team in Home Runs with 2, Tandy lead the team in hits with 24 and Batting Average with .400, and Munoz lead the team in RBI's with 15.
On the base path, our leading base stealer was Dylan Drake ('23) with 9 stolen bases. His lightning quick speed was able to help CB score runs as he moved into scoring position many times throughout the year on stolen bases alone. Not only did he make a big impact on the bases but so did Jake Elorduy ('22) and Erik Jensen ('23). Elorduy lead the team in total runs scored with 15 and Jensen was a close second by scoring 14.
Finally, on the bump we had many standouts throughout the year. These stud pitchers included: Jack Soares('23), Dylan Messier('23), Jake Tandy('22), and Gio Munoz ('22). Despite Tandy and Munoz battling injuries toward the end of the season, they still posted great numbers. The team leaders in strikeouts thrown were Jake Tandy with 56, Jack Soares with 38, Gio Munoz with 27, and Dylan Messier with 25. In regards to ERA, Messier not only lead the team with a 0.33 but he also lead the whole CAL.
As the season comes to a close, we would like to thank the seniors once again for their dedication to our baseball program these past 4 years. CB baseball has a bright future with the '23 and '24 classes and should have every right to be excited going into next years season. Falcons First!!
