Despite what has been a less than cooperative spring weather wise, the Ontario baseball team is off to a 6-2 start standing at 3-1 in the NOL.

Coach Dan Gorbett says his team may not have the bats that they have had over the last two seasons, but the Warrior nine have been able to put the ball in play, move runners along and bring them around when they are in scoring position. Gorbett also believes the hitting will get better the more the squad is able to get outside. He also adds that the teams defense, although at times very good, needs a little fine tuning saying the squad has made a few too many errors for his liking.

On pitching, Gorbett says his young pitchers have been able to throw strikes putting the ball in play and allowing the defense to play behind them but adds many of them still need game experience. On the NOL as compared to the NCC, veteran third baseman Kyle Pasheilich says the NOL is a league where you have to be prepared and at your best every night out. He says there were times in the NCC where you might be able to slide by on nights when you were not at your best, but not anymore.

Ontario's next three games are at Willard Tuesday, then at home against Mansfield St.Peter's Wednesday, then league play the next night hosting Sandusky.
