SIDELINE OBSERVATIONS: Bulldogs have that special something

Published: Tuesday, April 30, 2013 at 07:53 PM.

It's hard to compare teams from different years. Players and competition change, but good baseball doesn't.

There is no doubt that Crestview has a very good baseball team.

The Bulldogs finished regular season district play with a 4-4 record. Crestview was 8-4 after losing to Fort Walton Beach on March 15. Since losing to the Vikings, the Bulldogs have won 13 of their last 14 games.

Crestview has won in every way imaginable. Some games, the Bulldogs have made it look easy, scoring early and often. And there have been games when they came from behind to claim victory when defeat seemed almost certain.

If you like pitching, the Bulldogs have that. If you like hitting, they've got you covered. And if defense is your thing, this is probably the best defensive team I've seen at Crestview.

The most impressive things I've witnessed about this team are the genuine team unity and the team’s will to find a way to win.

A different player seems to step up every night.
