The Dominican Boys baseball team played Martin Luther on Tuesday, April 9th. Martin Luther is known to be an elite sports school. They seem to be of very tough competition in every single sport that they compete in. Dominican has a rich history is athletics as well. Dominican has won many basketball state championships, and this game was a clash between power house schools. Dominican has a very young roster. The varsity team has many under classmen, a couple of which get very significant playing time. Dominican was heading into the game feeling pretty good about their talents as a unit. There have been a couple of rough outings for the knights, but there was nothing that could not be fixed.
Dominican was the underdog in this game, and lost 16-6. Dominican showed true heart and passion for the game because they never stopped battling no matter what the scoreboard said. Our team truly showed that they can compete with some of the better teams in the conference. Dominican will use this game as motivation moving forward. This game can be seen as the launching point toward the beginning of a successful season for the Dominican Knights.
