Douglass Indians Claim State Championship in Dominating Fashion
Usually camouflage clothing is worn to blend in with the background in order to stay hidden from view. The Douglass Indians baseball team wore camouflage uniforms at the Class A state championship game Thursday morning, but there's no hiding their accomplishment.
Nor was their any hiding the smiles, the outstanding talent, and the end of game dogpile in the infield.
After several back to back seasons of coming up short in the regional section of the playoffs, the Douglass Indians not only claimed the top spot in the state in Class A baseball this year, but they did it a dominating fashion. Heck, dominating is an understatement.
Douglass pitching and defense closed out the playoffs by outscoring their opponents 40-0 over the last several games. The Indians finished the year at 33-1 and outscored their opponents 377-34. Included in that was the 5-inning 10-0 mercy rule dismantling of the Flatonia Bulldogs. You'd be hard-pressed to find any high school baseball team at any classification in any state to have this kind of outright domination.
Congratulations to the Douglass Indians - State Champions! Get more details on the state championship game at ETSN.
