The Eagles Baseball team is primed to make a deep run in the playoffs where familiar foe Texarkana Pleasant Grove will almost certainly wait. Either the Eagles or Pleasant Grove has represented Region II the past 8 years. The Eagles have lost some significant talent over the past year with mainstays Connor Mushinski, Brett Lundy, and Seth Green all graduating. The new group will be lead by seniors Parker Abrego, Bryson Hudgens, and Ben Pound as well as juniors Dillion Carter, Sean Bolin, Brendon Dixon, and Preston and Austin King. The juniors are all big time recruits, all committed to Big 12 Schools at some point in their career.

Unlike last year when the team was built on pitching, this team will be able to rake with the best of them. While last years team could hit, the team wasn’t chock full of power hitters like this team is currently. Hudgens, Carter and Dixon will lead this modern day murderers row. With the power of Hudgens and Carter the Eagle offense is one of the best in the state.  The King twins lost most of their sophomore season to injury, but the talented tandem looks to help lead a team that hopes to win the Eagle’s second state title.

The pitching, while not the main strength of the team, will still be as strong as ever with three pitchers committed or signed to major baseball schools— Abrego (Southern Arkansas),  Hudgens (Angelo State), and Bolin (Baylor). The pitchers will lead a very talented rotation that should be one of top in the state. Seniors Jake Burns and Brent Uys will also have some chances to eat up some innings for the Eagles.

Newcomers— sophomores Alex Gonzales and Houston commit Bo Hogeboo, freshman Tyler Abrego, Cole Kirkpatrick, and Cullen Davee— will all be fighting for playing time on a crowded roster.

The Eagles first game is Feb. 5 against the Aubrey Chapparells at The Ballpark at Argyle at 5:00 p.m.
