Vikings baseball team enjoy outdoors for first time

Mike Traum

South Tahoe High’s baseball team got its first taste of springtime air last weekend in Reno.

The Vikings scrimmaged Bishop Manogue. No score was kept, but Tahoe coach Ralph Clelan said it was successful in finally getting his squad outdoors.

“I wish we could get out there everyday,” Clelan said.

Tahoe used the grass time to look at its pitching staff, take some cuts and to get an outdoor look at the ball – all while playing in a live situation.

“We didn’t hit the ball as well as we could’ve. And when we did hit it hard, nothing fell,” Clelan said. “But it was our first day outside. It was a good practice for us.”

The Vikings have been working out primarily in the school’s gymnasium, with some outfield drills conducted in the parking lot. Traditionally, wet or snow-covered fields keeps the team indoors until well into the season.
