The East Marion Eagles (3-1) kicked off their season a little late with basketball bleeding into the expected schedule, but they have wasted no time starting hot out of the gate.
The Eagles outscored the opposition 42-17 in their first four games and stole an eye-popping 44 bases with Devin Daniels stealing 15 on his own.
I watched a ton of Marion County prep baseball over the past week-plus and have learned a lot about three of the four ball clubs. As I write this Tuesday afternoon, East Marion is the only team I haven’t seen play yet.
Here is what I have discovered up to this point:
The Columbia Academy Cougars (2-4) found themselves in two extremely close ball games last week with the game on the line in the final at-bats.
Squaring off against crosstown foe West Marion at home Friday night, the Cougars were unable to rise to the occasion in an electric atmosphere, falling 5-1 in extra innings.
