7th Grade Boys School Baseball 2024

This year’s 7th grade school baseball team had a rough start to the season, but have their goals set high.

The 7th grade boys Bombers baseball team have had a rough start to the season, but have their hopes set high. So far, they’ve lost each of their games (we don’t have an exact number of games played, but the players estimate around 6-8)

This year’s boys have had lots of ups and downs emotionally this year, with lots of the players being concerned with their playing time. There are currently 18 players on their team this season, so exactly half of their teams’ players sit out while the rest are in the field, and the players usually only get 1-2 at bats per game depending on their position in the batting order. 

With that amount of boys playing, there are often issues about who plays certain positions, with multiple boys often wanting the same spot. 

Although the Bomber boys haven’t yet won a game and often struggle with most of their opponents, the boys are still optimistic and use their mistakes as fuel to work harder. Matthew Fimmen says “I think that our team could improve on catching and throwing the ball as well as hitting” which most of his teammates agree with. When coach Sean Wingfield was asked what he thought about what his team could improve on, he said “teamwork is our number one priority.  Being a member of the Bomber Baseball team means that we are not only good baseball players, but good teammates as well. When we communicate and work together we are a much stronger team.”

Coach Sean Wingfield also states “even though we have had fewer wins than expected, I’ve been pleased with the amount of effort and growth we have seen this spring.”

After every game, no matter the outcome, Coach Wingfield wants his team’s players to go home happy with how they played. What he’s noticed that helps accomplish that goal is reciting the Bomber Baseball Creed after the end of every game. The creed states: “We Live Clean And Play Hard, We Play For The Love Of The Game, We Win Without Boasting, We Lose Without Excuses And Never Quit, We Respect Officials And Accept Their Decisions, We Never Forget That We Represent Our Team.”
