Fall Creek (WQOW) -- Fall Creek baseball coach Rick Storlie says it's not ideal for his team to be spending time indoors this spring, but there are benefits.
"It saves a lot on arms early on," says Storlie, "and to get some of the fundamentals that we don't have a chance to do out there a great deal of as far as bunting and doing different stations. Here we're pretty confined, so we have a pretty good eye on who is doing what and are they doing it correct."
Whenever the Crickets do hit the field, they expect to do well. Fall Creek has eight seniors leading the way this season. The crickets have advanced to WIAA sectionals in each of the last two years. This time around, Fall Creek's goal is to advance even further: all the way to the state tournament.
"Definitely it drives us to strive for the best inside these practices," says senior DeShawn Gillies. "We're coming in very positive."
Fall Creek had a game at Greenwood scheduled for this past Tuesday, but that matchup was postponed. The Crickets are scheduled to host Thorp, Thursday, April 11.
