The Alexander baseball team came into the season with high expectations as the #3 team in all of Texas. After a good start to the campaign, the Bulldogs would slide some in district play, going a combined 0-3-1 against both Eagle Pass and United. That included an end of the season 7 to 6 heartbreaking loss to the Longhorns in ten innings. The players say they've put all that behind them and instead are focusing on what lies ahead, and that is the Edinburg North Cougars in the bi-district round of the playoffs.
"It will take a lot of team effort. Everyone has to be doing their roles to get the job done. I'm confident in the pitchers throwing strikes and during the playoffs." (Danny Benevides, Bulldogs Catcher)
"We started off good, then had a couple of struggles but we've picked it up as a team lately. I feel good and know we can beat them. I'm pretty confident and we should do good." (Rudy Gaona, Bulldogs Outfielder)
Alexander and Edinburg North will play a one game, winner move on series this Thursday night in Alice. First pitch for that contest is scheduled for 8 pm.
