Over the summer, the PC Eagles baseball team got to play and finished with the record of 3-12.
With nine seniors on the varsity team, many familiar players returned, but also some new as Jack Vermer and David Willis played PC baseball for the first time.
The baseball team had undergone a lot of changes to keep everyone safe from COVID-19 so they wouldn’t have to cancel their season early. With some new rules, also comes some new experiences.
The team got to play at Principal Park. “Playing at Principal Park, beating Grinnell was a great experience,” says junior Micah De Haan.
PC’s baseball team achieved their first win was against the Pella Dutch with a score of 5-3. Beating Pella is always a highlight.
They also defeated their local rival, Oskaloosa by a score of 9-7; however, PC had to forfeit due to an illegal pitcher.
The Eagles played their last game at home against the Cardinal Comets in the first round of districts. It was an upsetting loss, but still a great season for the boys. “We all have good relationships and it’s just a good time,” says Senior Kyle Branderhorst.
The baseball program also bids farewell to head coach Jeff Bruxvoort who led the Eagles for six years, four as varsity head coach and two years before that as an assistant.
