Un-bee-lievable

East Fairmont pounds North Marion at home

PLEASANT VALLEY — East Fairmont’s baseball team walloped North Marion on Thursday evening, 18-3.

During the rout, the Bees were in complete domination from the get-go.

In the first inning alone, EFHS tallied 12 runs.

“We were able to get up fast,” East Fairmont’s head coach Rob Barrett said. “We hit the ball well. The baserunning was good, and we took advantage of the opportunities we had.”

That they did. In the first inning alone, the Bees took advantage of four walks, one hit batsman and four errant throws that led to runners on the basepaths.

“We looked like a Little League team the way we’re executing,” North Marion’s head coach Vic Seccuro said. “The first inning, we were set up to have a big inning. They get out of it with a double play. We had an opportunity of turning a double play, and what do we do? We boot it. We’re 30 feet from the plate and we throw the ball away.”

Although many of the Bees’ runs came via walks and errors by the Huskies, the Bees were making NMHS pay for its mistakes.

East’s James Bolander began the game with a hard single; then Tony Hayes and Cutter Atha walked. Earning the first RBI of the game was Easton Jimmie, who took one for the team, which in return scored Bolander.

This is when the Bees pushed the pedal to the medal and let it roar.

    A year ago Clint Trickett took a lot of grief as the once potent West Virginia offense came unraveled, but there is more that than meets the eye.
    The criticism was not unfounded, of course, although behind each incomplete pass there was the pain Trickett was suffering through to throw it, his rotator cuff in need of surgery.

    Doing both at the same time isn’t an option, at least not this year.
