Default Freeport baseball looking to lock down final four berth

Tonight, the Freeport baseball team, one with just enough players to properly fill out a lineup card, will look to advance to its first state final four by knocking off a postseason regular, North Florida Christian.
In the Eagles, Freeport (15-10) is faced with an offense that has pounded out 31 runs in two postseason games and boasts an ace pitcher in John Nogowski who signed a baseball scholarship with Florida State University earlier this year.
And yet, as the Bulldogs broke away from Thursday’s practice, first-year coach Shaun Arntz offered a little perspective on the eve of perhaps the biggest game in the program’s recent history.
“There’s not anyone can tell us that we don’t already know,” Arntz said. “We have to keep doing what we’ve been doing to get here. We can sit down and stare at their roster all week and look at their stats and everything else, but if we focus on that more than we focus on what we need to do to do win the game, we’re only hurting ourselves.
“We’ve just been focusing on the Bulldogs more than our opponent.”
In order for the Bulldogs to continue this unprecedented run, its most experienced senior – Michael Graziani – will somehow have to find a way to stay red-hot at the plate. Graziani is hitting .529 this postseason and has scored seven runs, keying what has been a rejuvenated Freeport lineup as of late.
“I’ve been real impressed with them ever since we got on the bus to go to Jay for the district tournament,” Arntz said. “This week, they’ve taken what I’ve told them in stride and they’ve remained focused on Freeport and not so much the other team. They understand if we don’t do what we’re supposed to do, we can’t compete.”
First pitch is scheduled for 7 p.m. in Freeport.

Everyone that wants to see a good high school baseball team, needs to come out to freeport high school around 6:30p.m. tonight to get a seat and watch as the bulldogs try to pull off one of the biggest upsets in walton county history. Coach Arntz said he wants to see a record crowd out so everyone come to the game to support to there first regional championship. Admisson is only 5 dollars. Were gonna plenty drinks and concession here.
