Follow through

Foster’s Christian Martinez follows through on a swing against Lamar.

The district slate of all high school baseball teams enters the second leg after spring break. Here is a closer look at each district:

District 20-6A

The Ridge Point Panthers enter the season as defending district champions but Travis still has plenty of talent to make another run at the crown.

The returning group is headlined by Trey Faltine and Kevin Ortiz.

The Tigers have rolled through a tough early schedule with only their losses to Dawson, Reagan, La Porte, Jersey Village and Kingwood Park.

District 23-6A

The George Ranch Longhorns finished tied for second in the district last season with Pearland.

But the Longhorns return all-district performers Anthony Araguez, Garrett Arredondo, Jacob Wilson and Jacob Surratt.

George Ranch opened 23-6A play with a win over a fellow playoff team last season, Brazoswood.

District 24-5A

Foster, Lamar Consolidated and Terry enter a tangled of a district in 24-5A, with the LCISD teams and Angleton moving over to join Manvel, Shadow Creek, Willowridge, Marshall and Hightower.

The biggest difference from the past years in that the schedule is setup in a series format.

Team will face each other in back-to-back games, most often on Tuesday and Friday in the same week.

The format change is to prevent teams from throwing their No. 1 starting pitcher more then once against the same team this season.

The outcome will likely result in Foster, Angleton, Manvel Shadow Creek, Lamar Consolidated and Terry fighting for the four playoff spots.

District 25-4A

Chris McKeller takes over the Needville program for his first coaching gig. He’ll lead the Blue Jays squad facing a deeper field with El Campo, Royal and Fulshear joining the varsity ranks.

District 24-3A

East Bernard is reigning 24-3A champions and now the Brahmas will shoot to get out of the bi-district round.

District 29-2A

The Brazos baseball team will have to deal with a schedule that includes top ranked Shiner and 1A teams sprinkled in.
