Clayton recaps season
By Michael Butler
The Tallassee baseball team has finished its season. Although the Tigers missed the playoffs, head coach Adam Clayton expects bigger things for next year.
"I feel our returning guys will be hungry to get stronger and better this off-season," Clayton said.
Tallassee was 10-16 in 2019.
"We had some injuries and spots to fill early on with inexperienced players at the varsity level, but those guys got good experience that will benefit us in the future," said Clayton.
Tallassee was still just one win away from advancing to the post-season with its final area game vs. Brewbaker Tech, a 10-7 loss.
"The loss to Brew Tech at home to relinquish our playoff hopes was a huge blow for our guys, especially after playing so well the day before at Brew Tech."
Clayton is proud of his seniors for the work they have done not only on the field but in the classroom.
"This group worked extremely hard. Many of them have 4.0 GPAs and will be very successful in whatever they do in life."
