Baseball Players Workout in Self-Built Facility to Prepare for Possible Upcoming Season
It was announced that the upcoming prep baseball season was pushed back to the summer for the time being, due to the covid-19 pandemic.
"I always look forward to playing spring ball and to hear that it was canceled until summer, it’s kind of let me down but it is what it is,” Cheyenne Mustangs’ sophomore, Jacob Knipper said.
However, it's still not stopping a couple of Cheyenne Mustangs’ baseball players from preparing to head out to the ballpark. Sophomore Mustangs players Xander Jarosh, and Jacob Knipper decided to deal with it by building an indoor workout facility to help sharpen their skills.
"There's no excuse to not be putting in work still and getting ready for when the season does eventually come," Jarosh said.
With team practices prohibited for the time being, the two are staying active, working out four times a day. They attack each workout with a mindset as if the season is around the corner.
"Every other team is in the same situation that we're in. We're just going to try to make sure that we can make ourselves as game ready as possible once the time comes," Jarosh said.
Both Jarosh and Knipper remain optimistic, with hopes of playing their favorite sport this season.
"It's just a crazy time right now,” Jarosh said. “As long as we can keep fighting, we're going to get through it and everything is going to be back to normal."
They choose to keep this facility private to help stop the spread of COVID-19.
