Blue and white is still on the baseball diamond as the Vardaman Rams have switched over to the summer season.
The Rams struggled some during the regular season and are using the summer to boost the program with extra playing time.
“The more playing time they get, the better they become,” said coach Brad Spencer. “We are a young team, but most of the kids that are playing now played as they were kids and several play competitive travel ball in their spare time.”
The Rams will be on an abbreviated schedule this summer playing close to home with familiar foes like Houlka, East Webster and Bruce and will face some good competition.
“Our area in this part of the state is blessed with talented kids,” Spencer said. “Just look at our divison.”
Spencer and the coaching crew will be using this off-season to help prepare the young club for next spring’s season.
“This upcoming year there will be some heads turned because our boys might be young but they are gritty and really good athletes,” Spencer said.
