As far as spring sports seasons go, there have been few, if any, like that of 2013. This is to say nothing of how Bonner Springs student-athletes fared; that the season even took place was itself a minor miracle.
The difference between a player scoring and not scoring from second base on a single is speed. Some players have it and others don’t. Luis Gardea has it.
Monday’s doubleheader — Eudora took the nightcap, 13-7 — also served as the Braves’ much-delayed home opener. The original opener, scheduled for March 26, was pushed back because of inclement weather and moved to Lansing’s field. April 8’s twin bill against Bishop Ward was also moved to the Cyclones’ home field because of poor field conditions.
