East vs. Seymour Boys Baseball

The 2022 baseball season was a modest yet important season for the team, and even the entire school. Coach Swafford’s philosophy of “working hard at every practice and with that getting better every day” will hopefully take the team far when it comes to postseason games. 

You may not have heard much about the season around the halls or attended many of the games however, the team was very much present when it came to being on the field and competing.

When it came to crosstown rivals Columbus North, East lost with a score of 6-2. But not even the loss to the rival school kept us down for long.

“I’m not worried about playing other schools. I think if we just go out and play we’re just as good as any other team out there,” Senior Tyler Bumbalough said.

With a mind set like that, the entire team shared, it is obvious why our team of 9 graduating seniors can look back at this season with nothing but the sensation of success.

This year’s Columbus East Baseball team is looking at a more modest season, but that does not make it any less important than last year’s season or the year before. This season only reminds the team and the student body to stay humble in our victories and head strong in our defeats.

Varsity and JV alike have learned similar if not the same lessons this season and coach Swafford is excited to see where his 2023 players will go.

While the 2019 season ended competing for the state championship, there is no doubt that this year’s season will not end with a whimper, but a bang.
