Yukon baseball: Varsity summer team is red hot in Red Dirt Summer League

Just like the summer vacation, the Yukon summer baseball team has started off hot in the first week-and-a-half of the Red Dirt League season.

The Millers have already played 18 total games and going into Monday evening, they had won nine of those games. They played a double-header at Norman North on Monday night and then turned around and played a double-header at home against Mustang on Tuesday afternoon.

Yukon has played in two summer tournaments so far this year and won both of them. The Millers will host the Diamond King Tournament on Father’s Day weekend with games beginning June 15 and running through June 18.

Millers head coach Kevin James said he likes what he has seen out his team so far this summer.

“Very pleased,” James said. “We have a lot of our guys coming along. Our pitching has been pretty solid and our hitting is starting to pick up. We are seeing a good mixture and fast and slow stuff at the plate, which you will get during the summer. We have thrown 11 or 12 pitchers so far this summer but with our schedule, you have to have a lot of arms. We are off to a good start but we need to keep improving and working on every aspect of the game.”

The results from the Norman North and Mustang double-headers will be in the Saturday edition of the Yukon Review.
