Minooka seniors look back at successful run
MINOOKA — It's every baseball team's dream to win a state championship at the end of the year. The reality of it, however, is that only one team in each of the four IHSA classes will hoist the title above their head come June. Although the Minooka Indians weren't one of those four baseball teams this year, they did finish fourth in the 4A class, sending their seniors out on a high note.
The Indians were a senior-led team all year, as six of the nine opening day starters in the batting lineup were seniors and pitcher Josh Jimenez was on the mound. By the end of the season, there were seven seniors in the lineup, as Nick White replaced the injured Steve Wittkamp in left field.
"I think it helped us out that we had seniors because we had experience in conference play," senior center fielder Alex Bebar said. "And although we only played one postseason game our previous year, it helped us."
