POTH -- After graduating a large number of seniors in 2008, the Pirate baseball team has spent the last two years rebuilding. This year, the team’s hard work has paid off, because with one district game remaining, the 2011 Pirate baseball team is headed to the playoffs.

When the season finally got rolling after basketball playoffs, it proved to be a very exciting one for the Pirates, and several of the games were decided in the seventh inning of play. In two of the games, Billy Korzekwa (first baseman and the Pirates’ only senior) has stepped up to the plate in the seventh inning with bases loaded and the Pirates trailing -- only to hit a grand slam. Both of those games were against George West.

In a game against Cotulla, Garrett Yanta delivered the hit up the middle to score the winning run in the bottom of the seventh. Then, against Dilley, the Lyssy brothers took control. With one man on, freshman Blake Lyssy hit a home run over the right field fence. Two batters later, older brother Zachary Lyssy hit another home run over the same fence. The team’s top batters for the year are Braden Lyssy, Korzekwa, Zachary Lyssy, and Tyler Kallies.

The Pirates have also played some great defense. In one game, the defense executed a rare triple play involving Korzekwa and Zach Lyssy. Also, several double plays have ended innings throughout the season, which included Pirate third baseman Dillon Zaiontz and second baseman Jacob Caloss. The team also has received strong pitching from juniors Trey Broyles and Braden Lyssy. Junior catcher Kallies has remained a wall behind the plate.

The Pirates are a young team and will continue to work hard on their road to the playoffs. Their overall record is 12-6, and district record is 10-3. Their first playoff game is scheduled against the Luling Eagles on May 6 at Nixon-Smiley High School. The Pirates are coached by Rick Sanchez and Chase Sanford.
