Wallace baseball wants to return to the JUCO World Series
DOTHAN, Ala. (WTVY) — The Wallace Governors are just a week and a half away from the start of their baseball team, and for the first time in a quarter of a decade, Mackey Sasser will not be in the Governors dugout.
The 2022 team was just one win away from returning to Grand Junction for the Junior College World Series for the second time in program history.
A big piece of that team a season ago, Wicksburg graduate Kade Snell, who is back at the helms this season.
First-year head coach Ryan Ihle says Snell has stepped up as a leader on this team.
Ihle also mentioned the close bond that this team has achieved since the beginning of this school year.
“That team chemistry, that team camaraderie, you know it’s big in the long run and in a long 56-game season. So this group is really close,” Ihle added. “They have been, they have been very close. They got together very early and bought each other. We hope to be able to return to this tournament. We’re back to a place where we could win one more game than last year.”
