VYPE Baseball Preview: No. 14 Cy-Fair Bobcats
Welcome to the 2022 baseball season.
The season got started this week with non-district games beginning across the city. VYPE has previewed 22 public school teams in the city.
Check out the season preview for the No. 14 Cy-Fair Bobcats.
The Bobcats won District 17-6A in 2021 and will be a player in the Regional Tournament come the Spring.
Coach Billy Hardin’s club won the district last year and went three rounds deep in the postseason for their fourth-straight playoff appearance. The Bobcats return six starters and they are extremely scrappy.
Their pitching is salty with returning first-teamer Nolan Wilson (HBU-signee) toeing the rubber. Lefty Connor Rodriguez and Cade Griffin (Odessa College) are solid backups and Trevor Sebek (second-teamer) can eat up some innings when he’s not playing third-base.
The outfield is stingy with Alex Dunagan (Colorado School of Mines) and Kyle Chambers running down balls. Both were first-teamers a year ago. Jack Pedrick, Jake Choate, Parker Lewis, Hector Rivera and Austin Godwin will also need to step up big this season.
“We are consistent pitching and defensively and have speed throughout the lineup that ignites our offense,” Hardin said.
