Lions are taking it to the limit

The 2017 version of Franklin Lion baseball has been a pleasure to watch as they made their way through a gauntlet of the state’s best teams in a march toward the State Championship.

They have disposed of some of the State’s top ranked teams during that match. Their opponent in the Region Quarterfinals was the State’s number 1 team in Nacogdoches Central Heights. Central Heights stood at 31-1-1 on the season and led by ace pitcher Grayson Rodriquez. The Lions have had their back seemingly against the wall in every round but have managed to make the big plays at the right time to advance. They knew going in that with each round the margin for error gets smaller.
