SD: 2017 Scott County Central Braves baseball preview

Saturday, March 18, 2017

Coach: Matt Limbaugh

2016 record: 7-8

Starters lost: 5

Returning starters: 3

Assignment: Class 1, District 2

Notes: The Braves will have to replace the bulk of its lineup after graduating five starters from a 7-8 season a year ago.

SCC lost Gavin Pobst, Jacob Brown, Colten Winter, Jeffery Porter and Brody Ditto.

They return senior Jordan Crone, junior Chris Johnson and sophomore Landon Glueck, who all started for the Braves last season.

Searching for over half of their next round of starters will come from a pool of inexperience.

"We lost most of our experience to graduation last season," Limbaugh said. "We bring in a lot of newcomers, including some that have never played the game. We are working hard trying to find out who we are and what we can become."

The Braves will be in Class 1, District 2 along with the two-time defending Class 1 state champions Bell City, Advance, Delta, Oran, Richland and Zalma. The district tournament will be played at Oran High School.

"They have a very positive attitude and are willing to do what it takes to get better," Limbaugh said. "Our goal is to learn something new everyday and help the boys develop a passion for the game."
