FHS diamond duo start ’09 strong
Baseball Ads blast South-Doyle, Heritage

It’s business as usual for the Class AAA defending state baseball champion Farragut Admirals two games into the 2009 season.

After a slow start at South-Doyle, Farragut still dominated with a five-inning, 13-1 win Monday, March 9. Winning pitcher was Jordan Cooper, senior southpaw and Ole Miss signee.

Despite connecting for just three hits against Heritage, FHS still cruised in its home opener at John Heatherly Field, 10-0, Tuesday, March 10. Freshman standout Philip Pfeifer, also a left-hander, was winning pitcher.

Senior Mac Thoreson and junior Nick Williams have served as FHS bullpen relief to date.

Farragut head coach Tommy Pharr said his pitchers “have done a good job, adding the overall team has “done O-K.

“But we’ve got a long way to go.”

Offensive highlights against South-Doyle include senior Trip Keeton’s home run. “And he’s not a power guy, so that was kind of a treat, I guess,” Pharr said.

Against Heritage, “I think [HHS] walked about 12 guys and maybe hit a couple,” Pharr said. “It was more that they struggled.

“I think early on, offensively, we’re behind,” he added. “None of our guys has swung it overly great. I think we’ll get better as the year goes on.

“I think we’ve played good defense.”

Farragut has taken its show on the road this week beginning with a game at Battle Ground Academy in Franklin Monday, March 16 (after press deadline).

Next is the Scenic City Classic in Chattanooga March 18-21 before a Monday, March 23, trip to District 4-AAA foe William Blount. First pitch is 5 p.m.

Archrival Bearden travels to FHS two days later, with first pitch at 6 p.m., Wednesday, March 25.

The Admirals’ Friday, March 13, home game versus Collierville was canceled due to rain.
