Cancellations put emphasis on Trinity Christian’s last nine games 

By Post Staff

For various reasons this season, Trinity Christian has had six games canceled and now the Warriors (9-2) are putting a lot of emphasis on the last nine games of the regular season in the hopes that they can carry momentum into the postseason.

Weather was the culprit for a couple of the games, but others were called off by opponents. In one instance, the Warriors were unaware of a cancellation and waited in vain at the field for another team to show up. For a game in Hialeah, the umpires failed to show.

So the Warriors’ schedule went from 25 games to 19 and because most of the rest of their schedule was at its weekly limit, there was only room for one makeup game.

“I don’t even know who the team is, I just picked up a game to make it 20,” Trinity Christian coach Miguel Cuello said. “I just want the guys to swing. It’s tough because you prepare for two games or three and then you get one game or two games canceled and then the next week comes up and you’ve got no games.”

At one point, the Warriors had only played three games in three weeks.

“It’s bad for the pitchers and the hitters,” Cuello said. “You have to see live pitching. You can’t practice too much, you have to be able to play games. So it’s been that kind of season but hopefully with these nine games in three weeks we can get our timing back again.”
