Rain hasn’t limited Brookwood much since Saturday’s 6-0 win over Terrell.
The Warriors have been bulking their batting and bullpen work this week. The team took about 75 to 100 cuts each on Monday and Tuesday, while the pitchers worked to solidify the final two spots in the rotation.
Jordan Bradshaw and Peyton Latmore have been the clear 1-2 duo, though coach Ken Johnson said the competition for the other two spots has stiffended in recent weeks. Among those in contention are sophomores Cale Deese and Drew Goodwin, and seniors Tyler Thompson and Bradley Clark.
“Right now, any one of those guys I feel comfortable with,” Johnson said. “They’re all about the same and equal.”
Johnson added that he’ll have a better gauge on the status by this time next week after Brookwood has played a few region games, which begin on Monday against Southland.
The Warriors return to the diamond on Thursday against Southwest Georgia after a five-day hiatus. They will then be off until Monday’s region opener.
Johnson said he pencils this open weekend on purpose each year as a performance measuring stick.
“Next week, I’ll be able to answer a lot more questions,” he said. “The main reason we do this is to see where we stand and how our kids are going to compete.
“I think our pitching has been real good. Our hitting is getting there, and our fielding is, too.”
First pitch in Thursday’s game is slated for 4:30 p.m.
