Recap - Exciting season for Melons

The 2017 version of the Goth­enburg Junior Melons showed a huge statistical improvement offensively over the previous year’s team. Most notably, the Juniors scored 89 more runs than last season. They also finished with an improved record of 15-8.

“Offensively I thought we hit the ball really well for the most part. We did a good job being patient at the plate. We took a lot of walks and we scored a lot of runs too,” stated Coach Fecht. “I thought overall it was a great season, 15-8 that’s a pretty big step in the right direction comparably.”

At the start of the season, the Juniors went on a four-game winning streak, earning victories in 7 of 9 games heading into the mid-season span.
