Badger Baseball saw their first action in a scrimmage at Killeen Ellison last night which they won by several runs. The 2017 Badger team appears to look pretty good, with more bullpen than last year and more talent there. They also look like they are ready to play, though with a new coach in Shane Doege, and his new system, they will need the several scrimmages and pre-district games that area laid out before them.
Lampasas Radio will have Coach Doege in the studio on Thursday to talk about the season and introduce himself to local baseball fans.
The first game for the new team will be at Gatesville on Feb. 20th but there are a few scrimmages leading up to that.
