It’s spring, and that means it’s baseball season. If you enjoy the game, you should get off the couch and come out to Mt. Goat Field and watch this young Goat baseball team play.
The team is proving that they are here to play baseball. Offensively they are hitting the ball and defensively, their heads are into the game.
On Tuesday, the team hosted 2A Blaine and came away with a commanding 7-4 victory after allowing four runs in the first and second inning.
The Chelan Goats went to work at the plate in the bottom of the second inning to score a run and continued their hitting streak in the bottom of the third inning to put a go ahead run across the plate.
