Fighting for a season

Fighting for a season

POCATELLO, Idaho (KIFI/KIDK) - With Idaho's high school baseball season pretty much done due to the coronavirus, the focus has now turned to American Legion Baseball in the Summer.

The organization canceled its regional and national tournaments, but the state organizations can still hold a season.

In Idaho, games are scheduled to state June 13, if all the reopen phases are carried out on time.

"It's a pretty big motivation especially how it was taken away from us," Highland High School and Pocatello Rebels outfielder, Easton Durham said.

"But now that we know it could be taken away from us again, I think if we got the opportunity to play some baseball, we wouldn't take it for granted. We would go all out every single game or every single practice."

Durham believes that first practice will be emotional and if they get a season it will give his Senior teammates the right send-off.

"To lace-up again kind of feels like a different kind of feeling," Durham said. "Like it's almost like seeping in a hotel and then going back home and sleeping in your bed. It's just a big difference. I want to go back and be on the diamond with everybody to playing again."
