Diamond Preview: Tallulah Falls Indians
The offense carried the Indians in 2022, though Tallulah Falls narrowly missed out on the playoffs by a single game. Though the roster turned over a ton of hitting talent, this year’s group should be more balanced and give TFS a good shot at the postseason.
HEAD COACH: Justin Pollock (3rd Season)
2022 RECORD: 12-13; No Playoffs; #10 State Ranking
RETURNING STARTERS: 2
KEY DEPARTURES: Norman Bastian, Drew Bates, Joel Miller, Tyler Popham, Malique Charlton, Aubrey Higgins
KEY PLAYERS: Frankey Moree, Danny Grant, Caden Walker, Rohajae Pinder, Chase Pollock, Ashton Roache, Cole Bonitatibus, Hutson Eller
STRENGTHS: “Energy, work ethic, commitment,” states Pollock.
The TFS offense generated school records with 217 runs and 20 homeruns. That power might take a small dip (or could be around the same), but the lineup is full of hitters who put the ball in play. The pitching should take a huge step this season.
“We hope to get better every day, play our best baseball at the end of the season, and make the playoffs,” adds Pollock.
