IMG_20160401_185909The St. Petersburg College Titans baseball team were on fire this past April Fool’s Day, and that’s no joke. They played against the Hillsborough Community College Hawks and ended the game at a 16-1 win, bringing it in early under the Ten Run Rule. The game started out at an even 1-1 in the first inning, but then it all seemed to go downhill for Hillsborough after that. While Hillsborough made several valiant attempts to bring up their score, stealing bases and loading them up, the Titans were alert in the field and at the top of their game getting them out every time.

IMG_20160401_190217Alex Hanson of Lutz played exceptionally well, giving St. Petersburg its first score of the game, and later he turned a walk to first into a third base steal. Sixth inning, he knocked it out and brought in two other players. Rizz Busch and Trevor Jensen should also be noted as bringing in fellow teammates, as did Titan #20, Cummings.

In the stands supporting the men’s baseball team were members of the Lady Hawk’s softball team, Davie Gill, and numerous St. Petersburg friends and family members. Rizz Busch’s parents were very supportive, calling out the Hillsborough pitcher during the fifth inning when he took a wide double shot over Hanson’s head. As one parent explained it, a double shot made it a very ‘questionable’ friendly retaliation for an accidental protocol bust by an St. Petersburg player earlier.

Despite the total domination by St. Petersburg , tonight’s game against Hillsborough was a lot of fun to watch with a lot of steady action and byplay.IMG_20160401_183830IMG_20160401_183429
