   The Gobles baseball team took to the field for the first time this season on a sunny day in Allegan. This year’s team has no seniors on the roster but the Tigers are looking to work hard and improve throughout the season. 
   “We look forward to the upcoming 2019 season. We have a lot of potential and are looking to continue to grow and develop as a team and respectable young men,” said Gobles Coach Vincent Church. “We are working hard on our team goals of maintaining a record over .500, finishing in the top part of our conference and a strong District performance.
    “We are looking to get better in our bullpen this year,” he added. “We will need to continue to work with our young pitchers and develop them throughout the season.” 
   In the season opener,  Gobles had a 3-0 lead after the second inning, and then exploded for seven runs in the third to go up 10-3 after three.  The Tigers cruised to  a 13-3 win over Allegan.    
   Gobles junior Jake Getman got it done on the mound, going five innings,  striking out seven batters and giving up six hits.
   Gobles was busy on the base path with 10 stolen bases in the game. Alex Tyrell claimed four of them. At the plate, Trevor King had two hits, with a double. Picking up one hit apiece were Brady Burnell, Caleb Brady, Hunter Tenbusschen, Hunter Underwood and Jake Getman.
   The second game of the night was called after three innings with the score knotted up at three apiece.
   Gobles got it started early by scoring one run in the first inning and two in the second.  But Allegan answered back, scoring three runs in the third to tie it up.  Then, the game was called due to darkness. 
   Gobles’ Caleb Brady pitched two innings, allowing four hits, and Brady Burnell, one inning, allowing one hit.  At the plate, Underwood had one hit (DBL), Burnell and King, one hit apiece.
