Carroll Baseball Looking to Bounce Back in 2014

CORPUS CHRISTI - The Carroll Tigers were out on the baseball diamond for their third day of work for the upcoming season. Carroll had a tremendous stretch of three consecutive state appearances from 2010-2012, but last year was a let-down according to the Tigers. They were knocked out of the postseason after just the second round, and they're using that as motivation for this season.

"Losing in the second round is definitely a down year for Carroll Baseball so we're looking to do something special this year," outfielder Ryan Benavidez said.

"If you're from Corpus, you're expectations are to go up to Round Rock and we're no different than anybody else around here," Coach Lee Yeager said. "That's what we want to do, but realistically you have to take care of some business first. On paper everything looks good but on paper sometimes it doesn't do the trick for you, so we're just going to keep working on some fundamental things and get some guys ready to go and see where we end up."

"I think that's our strongest suit right now - we have a lot of experience coming back - and hopefully we can put some pieces together," pitcher Rene Pineda said.
