Nolan Bushko on the field for the Eaton Eagles baseball team.
The Eaton Eagle baseball team has been all about the fight this season. After closing out their regular season strong, the Eagles have been preparing for their first round of playoffs. VYPE DFW takes a dive into what fans can expect from the bi-district round between V.R. Eaton and Weatherford baseball:
Nearly four seasons removed from their state title, the Eagles have used this season to build off of the success from last season where they had a strong playoff run. With a legacy to uphold, Eaton has been proving that they are more than meets the eye when it comes to Texas high school baseball.
Fighting their way into playoffs, Eaton is an extremely determined team. With the determination to turn this season into everything they want, the team can be expected to showcase extreme talent on the diamond during this three game series against Weatherford. Led by Nolan Bushko, Conner Massimini, Jeremy Jackson, Cody Brasch, and more- Eaton will do whatever it takes to make it to the next round.
Finishing first in their district, the Kangaroos are not going to be an easy team to go up against for the Eagles. Weatherford, a powerhouse when it comes to baseball, hosts incredible talent like Dayton Tockey, Jake Williams, Omar Jaurez, Trace Holcomb, and more.
The team set the bar high as they opened the season with two strong victories over Aledo. From there, they rode the high and took down opponent after opponent while outscoring the teams by a combined 80 runs. This team is more than prepared and has been working toward one goal this season.
Weatherford is a team of excellence. When they go down, they don't stay down for long. Fans can expect this team to do everything they're capable of in order to take down Eaton. Eaton is a team of resiliency and surprise attacks. The Eagles know how to slip through the cracks undetected and take down their opponents. As the underdogs coming into this battle, Eaton has the opportunity to strike unexpectedly. Fans should expect an intense showdown during this season.
Game one of the series is set to begin at 7 p.m. on Friday, May 6th at Eaton. Game two will begin at 1 p.m. on Saturday at Weatherford with game three immediately following if necessary.
V.R. Eaton Eagles baseball is a couple of years removed from a state title now. The team has been fighting for their chance to get back to the playoffs and then back to the stage where they have made it all happen many, many times before. After a season full of strength last year, the team is doing their best to create another strong playoff push.
Last season, the Eagles fell to eventual State Runner-Up Keller in playoffs last year to complete their season with an overall 29-12 record. In district play, Eaton posted a 7-5 record finishing fourth in their district. Despite a handful of losses, the team was able to head into playoffs strong- something the Eagles have the ability to do year after year.
This season, Eaton baseball has been showing their resiliency and the ability to fight through all moments on the field. After starting the season off strong, Eaton has had to battle through a rollercoaster of sorts in district play. The team has been able to defeat the likes of Byron Nelson, Fossil Ridge, Liberty Hill, Aledo, and more so far this season.
As the team works through the rest of their district schedule, Eagle fans can expect the heat to rise. The Eagles have been known to make a strong second-half of the season push in order to clench a playoff spot then go further. Eaton is set to face off against Southlake Carroll on Thursday in Southlake. First pitch is set for 7 p.m.
