Baldwin softball team hungry for wins

BALDWIN – Baldwin softball coach Bob Hilts continues to look for the right combinations to get his team on the wining path.

Hilts had high hopes for victories on Monday when the Panthers were home against Muskegon Heights.

But Baldwin struggled in a pair of 19-18 and 19-9 losses.

“We just can’t play defense to save our souls,” Hilts said. “We struggled hitting in the second game. We’re making too many mistakes.”

Inexperience continues to hurt the Panthers.

“I have 11 players,” Hilts said. ‘”Only three of them have ever played before.”

Ashley Roy did most of the pitching for Baldwin against Muskegon Heights.

Keyrie Norman, Baldwin’s third baseman continues to hit the ball well for the Panthers along with Gracie Lemieux. Hilts is looking for contributions from others.

“We have to be more aggressive in the batter’s box,” he said.

Baldwin plays Thursday at Muskegon Heights and Hilts is hopeful of gaining revenge with a pair of wins.
