The Foster High boys baseball team is returning four All-Seamount League players from last season as it makes a run for the playoffs.
This year’s captains are Tyler Solemsaas and Mitchell Forhan.
Coach Eric Hall says Tyler Amin has been a leader through his attitude and hustle, along with David Em.
“Solemsaas has been playing great for us at shortstop, a key position for us,” said Hall. “Em is returning and has been outstanding at catcher and is starting to heat up at the plate.”
Forhan is the team’s leader in the outfield and has been solid at the plate, said Hall. And, Drew Jorgensen has been “hitting well and is our ace this year.”
The Bulldogs are a “little thin at pitching,” Hall said, and he’s asked some players to pitch who wouldn’t normally do so.
“We have played some good teams so far this year and are off to a rough start record-wise, but each game we are getting better,” Hall said. “Every year, we expect to be in the playoffs and make a run.”
The team is competing well when it does its job: Throw strikes, get on base, and be mentally sound on the bases and in the field, Hall said.
