Tigers open 2017 baseball season

The Wills Point Tigers kicked off another baseball season at the Farmersville Tournament Feb. 23-25, looking to match and possibly even exceed the bi-district title the program captured during the 2016 season.

Wills Point struggled offensively throughout most of the tournament, getting held to one run in each of their first three outings before breaking through to finish the tournament with a 1-4 record overall.

The Tigers clashed with Paris North Lamar Feb. 23, registering just two hits over five innings in a 9-1 loss. Chuck Smith and Seth Wilson picked up the lone hits for the Tigers, while Sam Berberich finished with the lone RBI in the contest.

Errors proved costly for the Tigers in their second game of the tournament with three miscues paving the way for a 4-1 Farmersville win. 

Josh Brogdan took the loss for the Tigers despite allowing four unearned runs during three innings of work. Gage Granger pitched three innings in relief, allowing a lone hit and no runs.
