BASEBALL SEASON JUST A FEW MONTHS AWAY

The 2016 Bulldogs played beyond graduation and into June as they had their most successful season in school history taking State powerhouse Elk Grove to a deciding game 3 in the Sac-Joaquin Section Finals.  Ever since that last out, a Bulldog team with a lot of underclassmen were eager to get back on the diamond and give it a shot again in 2017.  

The countdown is now on to January when conditioning will begin and February when tryouts commence.   Check this website frequently for updates.

If you are a new player at the high school and did not gather information during freshman sports orientation night last spring, please make sure you 1) Register the student athlete in the Tracy High system called FamilyID

2) Contact the coaching staff to introduce yourself.  Freshman Coach Jerry Ortega

THE FUTURE LOOKS BRIGHT FOR BULLDOG BASEBALL

image_name2
Big Things Are Expected of the 2017 Bulldogs
The 2016 team and the senior class set the bar very high for future bulldogs, but there is no reason why the team that is assembled in February, 2017 won't have all the talent to make another deep playoff run.  There are some very good ball players in the freshman, JV, and varsity ranks of the program, and there are numerous underclassmen who got the opportunity to particpate and thrive in the pressure of this year's 8 game postseason run.

2016 BULLDOGS OVERCAME OBSTACLES, TURNED HEADS, AND SET THE BAR HIGH

The Dogs Hold Their Final Postgame Talk For 2016

There was some doubt that began to surface in April of this year whether Tracy had collapsed and would even make the playoffs in 2016.  Once the Dogs corrected a rough 2 week period in April, there were several baseball experts and writers that had them exiting the playoffs early as a #6 seed.  As the playoffs began, most bets were placed on St. Mary's being the South Section champs again.  The baseball experts were wrong.

As Tracy confidently swept through the South CIF playoffs in late May, most experts from the South and certainly the North last week gave no chance of Tracy knocking off Elk Grove.  After the game Friday night, the Elk Grove drinks were on ice and the parties were all planned.   Then came Cody Bolton on the mound at 10 a.m. Saturday with the help of his offense and defense.  After the 2-1 victory on Saturday morning, suddenly the Section took pause and had to reassess things a bit.   Who were these Dogs and could they upset the Herd?   By the 3rd inning of the final game with Thomas Greely giving every ounce of effort he had on the mound, for a moment in time, there became a distinct chance that Tracy could seize command of the game and bring home a Section championship.  But the curtain on Tracy's great season began to fall in the 5th inning as the Elk Grove big bats began to crank away on Greely's pitches and the Thundering Hood took their place as champions, just as the experts predicted.

For Tracy in 2016, they played the top team in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Section to a 2 win - 2 loss record.  As Coach Crivello put it, he wished he had a chance at Game 5. 

The Tracy coaching staff heaped an immense amout of praise on their players postgame.  Previous senior classes over the last 10 years had opened doors to gain Tracy local and regional attention.  There was the first playoff game in 2006, then the first playoff wins in 2009.  After gaining more and more playoff experience, the 2015 Dogs took St. Mary's to the brink.  Those previous Bulldog teams had shown the way for the 2016 Bulldogs.  Now these 2016 players opened even larger doors for Tracy High and took them to within just a few outs of a Section Championship. 

Hopefully the talented set of underclassmen who kneeled on the outfield grass listening to their coaches after the game were taking note of the gift and the experience that had just happened.  They all had just participated in something very special this year.    A 26 win season which resulted in the Dogs playing high school baseball in the month of June a full week after graduation.  

The bar has been raised by the 2016 Bulldogs and the message is clear.  We belong here, we know what to expect, and now it is left to the 2017 team to win just one more game.
