East Baseball’s Special Senior Night

Titan Baseball Seniors Get Special Treat

East Baseball 2 19

It was a happy and emotional Thursday night for East baseball.

The evening started with a truck parade of the senior players through the Riverside Stadium parking lot, as the Titan fans cheered on the team that was leading the district when Governor Abbott closed the state’s schools for the spring semester. Then the senior baseball Titans and their families were allowed into the stadium for a special event. Head coach Wes Kolle got emotional when talking about this team, and then he presented certificates and flowers to the seniors and their families.

Said coach Kolle, “Given the current situation this is the least that we could do. We’re just proud of everybody rallying around this event and supporting these guys. I sure wish we were getting ready to play in the first round of the playoffs tomorrow night, but God’s in control and he has a bigger plan for these guys and for this team.”

Two of the East baseball seniors will sign to play with junior colleges. Zack Shannon will sign with Indian Hills Community College, while Jacob Martinez will sign with Coastal Bend College.
