The Jefferson Community College baseball team is back in action Friday afternoon when they travel to Cayuga Community College for a doubleheader, with game one set for 1 p.m.
Brandon Noble’s team has played six games so far this season and had their first home games of the season on Tuesday, when they dropped a doubleheader to Mohawk Valley at the Alex Duffy Fairgrounds.
JCC is off to an 0-6 start and have had a rough time producing any offense, scoring only 4 runs in their first 6 games.
While the roster is a little thin, with only 15 players on the roster this season, Noble says that the players are glad to be back on the diamond after losing their entire 2020 season to COVID-19.
“It’s a great learning experience for us, being a new coaching staff, you know,” he said. “We’ve been practicing for a long time so we felt pretty confident there but it’s just nice now to get some games in, get some experience under our belt and be able to grow from here. Being able to play these early games is a big advantage so we can get the wrinkles out early and then be able to be ready to go for the long haul.”
