WHS Baseball Long Ball Champions and Opening Banquet

Last Saturday, Weatherford High School baseball hosted its annual Long Ball Contest, which marks the beginning of every Roo baseball season.

“The competition consists of our coaches throwing each player about ten pitches, which the players try to hit as far as they can, kind of like the MLB home run derby,” said WHS Baseball Booster Club President Jeff Swain. “We mark the longest ball that each player hits, use a laser distance measurer to determine how far it went, and the winner is the player in each class with the longest hit. It’s a fundraiser for the baseball program, so we follow that up with letters to each player’s friends and family with the player’s distance and ask for donations either based on a per foot basis or just a flat donation.”

The 2017 overall champion and senior class winner was senior Amon Pool, who hit a 378 foot home run to left center field. The other class winners were junior Colt Davis, 357 feet, sophomore Lukas Loran, 363 feet, and freshman Brendon Lopez, 300 feet.

Next up for the WHS baseball program is the annual Opening Banquet and Auction scheduled for Thursday, February 16, at the WHS Cafeteria. At the banquet, coaches will introduce the varsity, junior varsity, and freshman teams and enjoy a dinner catered by Rio Mambo. Following the dinner, an auction benefiting the baseball booster club will be held.

“We’ll have lots of great items to auction off in both live and silent auctions, including autographed baseball memorabilia, week-long passes to the Colonial, ticket packets to the Dallas Stars and TCU baseball, and lots of fun, themed baskets,” Swain said. “The whole community is welcome at both the banquet and auction. If anyone has items that they would like to donate for the auction or would like more information, please contact Stephanie Ray at (817)726-4881.”

The WHS Baseball Booster Club supports the baseball program by buying everything from baseballs and batting cage screens to team meals for road games and lodging for out-of-town tournaments, Swain said.
