LA has tough schedule to open 2014

-A A +A

Baseball > Only one ’Topper game in March will be at Bomber Field

By Mike Cote

While the weather may not be playing ball right now, the Los Alamos Hilltoppers are.
The season has begun for the Hilltopper baseball program. The team opened up its season this weekend with a doubleheader at Piedra Vista, its usual season-opening jaunt.
And this will hardly be the only road trip Los Alamos has in its immediate future.
“We’re definitely going to be road warriors, that’s for sure,” said Hilltopper manager Mike Gill.
Los Alamos has just one home game set for the month of March, that will be March 12 against Hope Christian.
Expectations are fairly high right now for the Hilltoppers, who have several returning veterans, lots of arms in the bullpen, and good power at the plate.
The Hilltoppers sport one of the dominant players in Class 4A, junior Jared Mang, who has been hitting No. 3 in the batting order since his eighth grade season.
Mang, who plays shortstop when he’s not pitching, had a big season in 2013. Mang hits for power, he hits for average and is a solid No. 1 in the Hilltoppers’ pitching rotation.
Gill, heading into this weekend’s doubleheader with the mighty Piedra Vista Panthers, said he wasn’t sure exactly who was going to throw this weekend, but was planning to get as many pitchers in as the games would allow him to.
