SUMRALL, Miss. (WDAM) -The Sumrall baseball team has yet to lose a game in 2022.

Cruising to a 19-0 record, the Bobcats rank fifth in the nation according to MaxPreps.

They’re doing all the basics like hitting well and playing good defense but beyond that Sumrall Head Coach Andy Davis attributes their success to leadership within the program.

That starts with the 16 seniors on the roster.

“You know we got 16 seniors. We’ve got a lot of leaders. There are some teams out there that don’t have any leaders,” Davis said.

“We have a bunch of leaders and when a guy makes a mistake or a guy strikes out, our seniors, they pick these guys up. I know they don’t want to let the team down but these seniors are helping out. Baseball is not easy. If it was easy everybody would do it. It is a mental thing and it helps when your teammates are behind you, coaches are behind you.”
