Ontario Baseball Team Looking For Consistency.

ONTARIO, OH- The Ontario Baseball team stands at 7-6 overall and 4-1 in the MOAC after an 11-5 win over Clear Fork. Head coach Jeff Fisher says his team is still looking for consistency. ” Well, the 7-6 record means that we have been inconsistent and coming off a COVID year I think in the back of your mind that a strong possibility we only have two guys coming back that can say they were everyday players at the varsity level and a pitcher transfer that got his feet wet on the mound but everybody else is first-year guys and it has taken a while to get entrenched in that routine. Warrior senior Owen Hatfield is one of the MOAC’s leaders in stealing bases with eight. “The thing with Owen as of late is he is getting on first so it allows him to use his speed more consistently,” said Fisher. The difference between Owen two years ago from now is his confidence and being able to read and being able to read and get good starts and get good jumps and that has helped him and helped us score runs.””First you gotta get a good lead and then it’s just kinda like you have to trust your own speed before like the catcher’s arm, said Hatfield. Just as soon as you see that leg go up you just gotta make a decision to go and you can’t stop. The Warriors will play two this weekend at Vermilion Friday, then Wooster Triway at home Saturday. “Both historically good athletic schools Vermilion, especially in baseball, said Fisher. They stress baseball at Vermilion. Triway you think about their longtime A.D. and baseball superstar Sean Carmichael who passed away a couple of years ago and those kids play for him and they want to carry on his legacy that Sean and his father initiated a spark at Triway we respect both of these schools in our nonconference matchups this week.”Ontario’s next matchup in the MOAC will be this coming Tuesday at Galion.
