High School Baseball Roundup 2/22/18



Seffner Christian opened its season with a bang scoring five runs in the first two fames to cruise to a mercy-rule win over Bell Creek Tuesday afternoon. After scoring two runs quickly, Dean Collins (2-for-3, 3 RBI) broke things open in the first with a two-run single to right. Colby Leduc had a double and a pair of RBI for the Crusaders, and Andrew Rodriguez plated two on offense and earned the win on the mound tossing three innings, allowing one hit and striking out three. Brendan Gerena-Lee went 2-for-2 with a double for Bell Creek, and Dean Holtz and Dante Portillo had an RBI apiece.

Unlike many independent news organizations, we haven’t put up a paywall – and we hope to be able to keep bringing you the great stories from high school athletics in the 813 area free of charge. But we are still a small business with just a handful of people involved, so there are costs including travel, equipment, and other costs associated with running this business. We are looking for advertising partners, but we also need to count on our readers for support. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, we will be able to continue covering these athletes’ endeavors.
