BHS Tigers have the depth and experience to make strong run
Robin Lewis, a sure bet for the IBBCA Hall of Fame, boasts a career mark of 496-202, and is a cinch to hit the magic 500 win number in this 2015 season.
Last season the O&B went 25-10, losing in the finals of the Class 2A Sectional in 2014.
Coach Lewis has a fine nucleus returning, including a strong mound staff. As they say in baseball lingo, “You can’t have too much pitching.”
Back is the “ace” of the O&B staff in junior Rick Dour, who fills in at the shortstop position when not on the mound. Dour had a record of 7-1 and an outstanding 0.45 ERA, he struckout 59 and issued only 13 walks in 81 innings of work. Marcus Bauser finished with a mark of 2-3, and worked 33 1/3 innings, with a fine ERA of 0.45. Also back to bolster the mound corps is D’ante McWilliams who will see more innings this year, having suffered a shoulder injury in football the previous season. Paul Schultz will also see some action this spring on the mound.
