Spring is rapidly approaching, which means two things are coming: warmer weather and baseball.
During the week of March 14 through March 18, Mt. Vernon held tryouts for anyone interested in playing baseball. The tryouts were held outside on the baseball fields after school.
“We should have a pretty good team this year. I am excited to get going,” said Kennedy Parker, 12.
The first game for the marauders will be on April 5 at home against the Southport Cardinals. Mt. Vernon is also ranked 9th in the state for class 4A to start the season.
“I am really excited for this season. We have a great group of kids and I’m thinking we will have a pretty good year,” stated Coach Carr.
The Marauders will be looking to live up to the hype surrounding this season and build off the success from last season.
