Solid start for North Star boys baseball team

Northstar's Sawyer Krokos gets hit with a pitch.

It’s been a solid start for the North Star Wolves boys baseball team.

The Wolves were in action three times over the past week, the first of which was a home game at the Libro Centre in Amherstburg May 6. The Wolves went up against the Tecumseh Vista Academy Vortex and won 11-1.

The Wolves entered the game undefeated and remained that way, winning via the mercy rule.

Team captain Kyle Jones said it was a good game for North Star and that it was nice to have a strong start to the 2024 boys baseball season.

“We hit the ball well today,” said Jones.

The Wolves are looking strong this season, he added, and they hope to go deep in the playoffs once they get there.

“I think this team is ready for a run for the (WECSSAA) Tier 2 championship,” said Jones. “We’ve got some practices in and we have come together well.

Everyone is getting a chance to play.”

The Wolves are having fun at the diamond, he added, and are looking for big things. Ethan Hill, one of the Wolves’ coaches, said this year’s team has players from all high school grade levels contributing.

“We have a good mix of seniors, intermediates and juniors,” he said. “Everyone works hard at practice. Most of them are returning players from last year.”

Pitching and baserunning were also keys against Tecumseh Vista Academy, in addition to the offense, Hill added.

The Wolves undefeated streak ended at three games a day later, as they travelled to Kingsville but suffered a 13-6 loss to the Cavaliers. Sawyer Krokos had two hits and an RBI while Ashton Fevreau had two RBI’s and Jones one.

North Star was in action Monday afternoon with a home game versus Cardinal Carter. The result of that game was X-X in favour of XXXXXXXXXXX, which put the Wolves’ record at X-X on the season.

Remaining regular season games are today (May 15) at home versus Lajeunesse at 3 p.m. and May 22 in Essex at 4 p.m.
