After a heartbreaking Canceled regular season for Eastland youth baseball, Texas Teen-Age Baseball did everything they could and were able to salvage our state tournament. The Eastland team - Head Coach Brody Herrington - received Boy’s 12U Tight Base Runner Up 2020. Thank you to the community of Eastland with all their sponsors and support to help make this happen. Team members pictured above are Kye Herrington, Jacob Harrower, Dionisio Vogt, Alex Murdock, Ryder Boykin, Jason Zamora, Elijah Gonzales, Lane Wilson, and Issac Robles.
The Eastland Mavericks, Cisco Loboes, Strawn Greyhounds and Gordon Longhorns are among the teams expected to do well should teams be able to take to the football field this fall. Errr … better make that, expected to do very well on the field.
If you love high school sports, can take photos and keep a few statistics, the Eastland County Today is looking for your help.
