The Indian River Baseball team has been hard at work this fall.
The River Baseball program, since arriving on campus and starting classes, has been hard at work in team practices, small groups and individuals, and also investing a lot of time in their strength and conditioning program. The Pioneers have also competed against outside competition, and just recently attended the Juco All Star Showcase, in Lakeland, FL.
There have been a number of bright spots for the Pioneers, says Coach Kingston. "We feel like we finished the fall playing very clean baseball, competing on the mound and throwing strikes, and that will give us an opportunity to win a lot of games. We are a physical team offensively, and I am confident that with continued work through the winter months, that we will be in a position to be clicking on all three cylinders. We have a lot of work left to do, we have guys that are continuing to get healthy, and I feel that with a sustained effort that we have seen this fall, that we will be moving in the right direction when we return from the holiday break in January."
The River's fall will come to a close on this Thursday, when they host their annual scout day. Last year, twenty MLB organizations were represented. The Pioneers will then move into individual groups, and continue on in the current phase of their strength and conditioning program.
The Pioneers will then return in early January. They will hit the ground running in preparation for a forty seven game slate, with their conference opener being a home game hosting Broward State College, February 21st.
