The reality of today’s high school baseball (and many other sports) is this: schools fight for bragging rights and championships, but many of the players play on the same travel teams and in the same summer leagues. They know each other. More often than not, they’re good friends. [More]

Palm Beach Central’s baseball team started the season 1-3 but has won six straight including a pair of big wins on Saturday over Timber Creek from Orlando and district opponent Park Vista. The more dramatic of the two came earlier in the day when the Broncos were down 7-0 to Timber Creek, then 10-3, then scored 10 runs in the sixth inning – including a grand slam from Alex Hernandez – to win 13-10. A few hours later, they dominated Park Vista 8-2.

So how did the Broncos have enough to beat Park Vista after that monstrous effort against Timber Creek?

Park Vista looking to make changes after disastrous doubleheader

  • 12:57 am Sunday, March 14th, 2010 by Post Staff

Park Vista baseball coach Larry Greenstein said Saturday was the worst day in the six-year history of Cobra baseball. And after losing to Parkland Douglas 14-8 and following that up with an 8-2 loss to Palm Beach Central, Greenstein thinks it’s time to make some changes.

“We’re not going to throw in the towel but we’ll probably need to make some adjustments,” Greenstein said. “Batting order and maybe some different guys getting an opportunity to perform and see what they can do. We’ve pretty much hung with the same lineup for the most part. We just have to shake it up a little bit and see what the missing piece of the puzzle is. What are we missing and what can we put in to maybe help our chances? Right now it’s tough to say and you really won’t know unless you try it and see if it works.”
