Wildcats baseball Area game has been moved to Frisco Wakeland Thursday night, 7:30 p.m.. The game was moved to Wakeland due to expected weather conditions. The Wildcats will host Wakeland at Eagle Stadium Friday night at 7:30. If a third game is needed, they play at Rockwall Heath Saturday.
After considering the chances of rain in Frisco and Sulphur Springs Thursday night, Wildcats Baseball Coach Jerrod Hammack has agreed to flip the area playoff schedule this week. Game three, if necessary remains at Rockwall-Heath Saturday at 1 p.m.
Coach Hammack said Wakeland is very good and will be the best team the Wildcats have faced this year. He is not sure they measure up to the eventual state champion Prosper team the Wildcats met in the playoffs two years ago. Coach Hammack said Wakeland has two good pitchers capable of throwing in the mid to upper 80’s. He said of pitchers the Wildcats have faced this year, perhaps only the Forney pitcher the Wildcats met in their opening game throws harder than the top two Wakeland pitchers.
Coach Hammack said Wakeland has guys throughout the lineup that can swing the bat. He said they also play solid defense. Coach Hammack said you don’t win 30 games in a season without doing everything well. Wakeland is highly ranked in state and they have only three losses this year.
Coach Hammack said his players are excited about meeting Frisco Wakeland. He added the Wildcats believe in themselves and each other. Coach Hammack said Wakeland would present a challenge but he said his team would be up for it and compete. He said there would be no fear of Wakeland but there would be a healthy respect.
