Jacket baseball stays hot in cold

BY BRETT VOSS
 
Before the 2015 Texas high school baseball season began, Meridian Yellowjacket first-year head coach Ryan Moreau expressed the desire to restore the baseball tradition in Meridian. Despite battling bizarre weather conditions, the Jackets have started the season on the right track. After opening with a wild 9-8 victory over Mart Feb. 27, the Yellowjackets finally got back on the field last Saturday to sweep both ends of a doubleheader over Itasca in Mexia. Needing to play on a neutral site because of soaked fields due to steady rain, sleet, ice and snow over the last two weeks, Meridian run-ruled Itasca, 13-2, in the first game before blanking the Wampas Cats, 8-0, in the nightcap. “We have a good group of core guys coming back this season,” Moreau said. “Several of the guys got a lot of playing time last year, and we have guys ready to step up and fill roles. All the guys are excited to get the season going.
