While the Sissies were in Austin aiming for the green, the Bulls were back home prepping for baseball playoffs after seizing the District 9-3A title.
Bridgeport (23-5, 7-2) tasted baseball supremacy for the first time in at least two decades. In the last four years, the Bulls have been consistent playoff contenders,but they hadn’t staked claim to the No. 1 spot, said Ted Leps, Bulls coach.
“It’s been at least 20 years, as far as we know, unless someone calls us and lets us know,” Leps said. “The last time they got close, they got beat in 1988 by Waco La Vega, and they had Arthur Rhodes, who was a Texas Rangers relief pitcher last year.”
The 2013 Bulls beat Sanger to claim the district crown. Leps said the Bulls worked hard to face off against stiff competition but acknowledged nothing about the season so far had been a cakewalk.
