Cordell Recreational Baseball/Softball Seasons Come To A Close

The next generation of Blue Devils baseball and softball players wrapped up their seasons this week, with Cordell’s 8U and 10U softball teams posting perfect, undefeated records on the year.

The season begins with volunteers taking to the fields at Gregory Park to remove weeds and grass from the infields and and hauling in additional dirt as needed to smooth out the base area. Before every game the coaches come out to rake the dirt, chalk the fields, and make sure the fields look good for the players, visitors, and spectators, and then the fun begins.

More than 160 kids came out this year to be part of Cordell’s recreation league, with three softball teams, six t-ball teams, one coach-pitch, one pee wee, and one midget team. Twenty-three volunteers stepped up to help coach Cordell’s kids this year, under the direction of league president Jay Todd and his primary helpers Kristin Todd, Rachel Neeley, Brandon Neeley, David Thain, Gina Thain, and Nathan Larsen.

Cordell’s Baseball Season Ends At Regionals

The Cordell Blue Devils ended their 18-10 baseball season in regional tournament play against Amber-Pocasset in a rain-delayed game at Western Oklahoma State College in Altus Saturday, May 4, 2019.

“We finished the season 18-10 and were the district champions,” said head coach Bobby Blackburn. “We got rained out of playing in the finals at one tournament and in the third place game at two others. We had several quality wins as well as quality losses. I’m really proud of my team. They carried themselves with dignity on and off the field. I know that all nine will be successful in anything they choose to do in life. I’m really going to miss the five seniors. Next year, the four coming back will have to show leadership as juniors, but I know they are up for the challenge.”
