CASC baseball team opens season Monday afternoon at Bacone JV

The Carl Albert State College baseball team will begin its 2014 season at noon Monday in a road doubleheader against the Bacone College junior varsity in Muskogee.“We're ready,” CASC coach Mark Pollard said. “Every year is new and special. This is my 32nd [as CASC head coach] and 35th overall, and each one of them is special. We're excited about it [starting the season].“We have a young ball club, with not a lot of returning starters. Often times on paper, that doesn't bode well, but a lot of these kids have waited on their chance. It's their turn and their opportunity. We think we've improved, and we think we've worked hard. We're ready to see what they can do. We're ready, and we're excited. We're looking forward to it.”• • •2014 Carl Albert State College Baseball ScheduleDate Opponent Site TimeFeb. 3 Bacone JV Muskogee Noon Feb. 8 Paris Paris, Texas 1:30 p.m. Feb. 23 East Central JV Poteau 1 p.m. Feb. 25 Ozarks JV Clarksville, Ark. 12:30 p.m.March 2 East Central JV Ada 1 p.m. March 4 Seminole Poteau 2:30 p.m. March 8 Seminole Seminole TBA March 8 Indian Hills Seminole TBA March 11 Paris Poteau 1:30 p.m. March 15 SW Iowa Poteau 1 p.m. March 16 SW Iowa Poteau 1 p.m. March 17 SW Iowa Poteau Noon March 22 Rose State Midwest City 2 p.m.March 23 Connors State-x Poteau 1:30 p.m.March 25 Eastern-x Wilburton 6 p.m.March 28 Rose State Poteau 1 p.m. March 29 Eastern-x Poteau 1 p.m. April 3 Murray State Poteau 1 p.m. April 5 Murray State Tishomingo 1 p.m. April 8 Independence TBA 2 p.m. April 10 NOC-Tonkawa Tonkawa 1 p.m. April 12 NOC-Tonkawa Poteau 1 p.m. April 15 Coffeyville, Kan.
