Day One... Terriers Spring Training
Submitted By Dan Thompson on Wednesday, March 7, 2012
After a spirited practice Thursday morning the 16u, 17u and 18u Terriers jumped right into action with games at the Walter Fuller Complex in St.

Petersburg Florida. The SRs opened with a highly competitive game against the University Tampa's Junior team, however fell 7-4. Lefty Zack Sloan got the nod and was excellent through three innings of work. Zack allowed just one hit and struck out two Spartan hitters. After Tampa scored an unearned run in the top of the first, the Terriers struck back in their half of the inning sparked by a lead off single by CFer Toby Handley. Toby eventually scored and would also go on to count two more hits on the day. He also had a stolen base. Justin Carroll followed Sloan on the hill, going two innings, allowing just two hits and an earned run. Travis Laitar was next in and he too allowed only two hits while striking out two. With the game tied 2-2 in the bottom of the fifth, TJ Baker lead off with a sharp single. Toby Handley followed with a shot to left center advancing TJ to third. The next pitch was a pass ball, allowing Baker to score, giving the Terriers a 3-2 lead. Nick Dimpfel was next in and he added another run with his first RBI of the spring, scoring Handley. Unfortunately the lead did not hold up as Tampa went on to score a run in the sixth and four more in the seventh. Mike Morley came on to pitch a perfect eighth, striking out two, but the Terriers went quietly the rest of the way. First baseman TJ Baker had a great day at the plate with three hits. Geoffrey Seto had two, Jon Palumbo, Robert Grilli and Turner Spears all chipped in with one. While the 17u Terriers were matched with JC powerhouse St. Petes College, the 16s were engaged in a back and fourth affair with St Marks Academy. The offense was lead by Michael Moffatt who had a three RBI triple. It was not enough however, as the Terriers were defeated 13-7. Matthew Plut, Garrett Jewel, Lucas Tevlin, Liam Wilson and Brandon Paul all had hits in the contest. Spring Training continues for all three teams on Friday with practices and games. The 15u Terriers begin play on Saturday.
