The Crowder College Rough Riders are getting ready to defend their Region 16 Championship starting Thursday (5/10) at 4PM from Joe Becker Stadium in Joplin.
The Roughriders are 44-13 on the season and will face State Fair in the first round.
“You know, we’ve been here before, you know so, we don’t feel pressure, or anything, you know we just look at it like it’s another game and I think that’s worn off on the young guys, too so, they’ve been around long enough so they know what’s expected and I think you know, it’s going to be an exciting tournament for us,” said Monett native and Crowder Sophomore Outfielder, Cameron Witt.
“”Our lineup is so deep, everybody can hit and I think that’s so important. You can’t pitch around somebody. You have Kobe leading off you have Cooper in the nine, like in between that you can’t pitch around anybody. I think if we keep swinging the bat’s it’ll be perfect,” added Crowder Sophomore Outfielder, Tyler Duncan.
