In 2001, Cheyenne Post 6 won its first state championship after a 10-year drought. Since then, the Sixers have won 12 out of 13 state titles including the last 5 in a row. Post 6 has 27 total state titles and the quest for 28 begins tonight. But, Post 6 wants something more than just another state title.
"No definitely not. We've won state so many times now that our goal is to win regionals and go play at nationals this year. And we can definitely do it with the guys we have." said Senior Pitcher Isaac Block
Tagg Lain is back at the helm for Post 6. This is his 21st season a manger.
He has to feel pretty good about a stable of returning starters
that includes Cam Johnson, Tyler Lambert, Brian Lopez and the Isaacs: Block and Taylor.
Isaac Taylor returns a bat that produced a .380 batting average with 26 doubles, 81 RBI's and 5 home runs which lead the team in those categories.
Lambert lead the team with a 10-4 record with 71 strike outs and a very impressive WHIP of 1.25. WHIP is walks and hits per inning pitched.
The season begins tonight and Lain is ready to show the world what the 2014 version of Post 6 baseball is all about.
"They're excited to get playing. It's been a good spring for us. Been a lot of cold weather but we've had some good workouts indoors as well. We're excited to see where we're at and get out on the field and play a game and we know Casper is an excellent opponent so it should give us a good idea where we're at this point." said Lain Thursday afternoon.
