February 13th & 14th marks the season opener for our CBC Mustang baseball squad against Williams Baptist College in Walnut Ridge, Ar. The 4 game (total) series is slated to begin at noon each day followed by the second game aprox 30 mins after.
Williams Baptist (2-2) is a member of the American Midwest Conference and is coached by Frank Lee, in his 4th year.The Eagles opened the season with Arlington Baptist, splitting a 4 game series. The team ERA was 7.96 in the series. The Eagles went 41-118 for a .347 batting average for the weekend.
The Mustangs are lead by 2nd year Head Coach, Dr Aaron Brister along with Assistant Coach Jonathan Buczek. Together these coaches led CBC to a record setting season in their first year with the program. The 31 overall wins were the most in a single season for the Mustang baseball team.
CBC returns over 17 players with experience from last year's campaign. A strong freshman class along with experienced transfer student-athletes should prove to add depth to the bench and extend pitching.
The weather forecast calls for sunny skies, breezy both days with the high only in the mid 40's. Wind gusts expected to be 20 mph. Welcome to February baseball in Arkansas.
