It was a perfect start for the Del Norte Grizzlies American Legion baseball team this past weekend.

The Grizzlies opened up their season with two doubleheader home wins on Saturday and Sunday to begin the year at 4-0.

“It feels really good to start this way,” head coach Eric Enos said, saying it was the first time in four years of coaching the team that they had gone 4-0 to start the year. “We still have work to do, although it’s a good start.”

He added that he was fairly pleased with his team’s pitching, which included two complete game efforts on Saturday.

Enos said the key to earning these early season wins was the fact that his squad was aggressive and capitalized on their opponents’ mistakes despite being inconsistent in the hits department.

Head coach Eric Enos has high hopes for summer success for the Del Norte Grizzlies American Legion baseball team.

The squad returns several veterans as well as a few promising newcomers, which Enos hopes bodes well for the new season, which begins at home today.

“I feel good about our progress,” he said. “I’m excited about this team.”

A strong suit, Enos said, will be with the pitching. Around 10 out of the 14 team members  have the ability to pitch for the Grizzlies. This includes several players Enos is looking at for  the No. 1 pitchers spot.

As a coach, he said it’s quite nice to have such a deep pitching staff to turn to.

“It’s a luxury to have so many pitchers,” he said.
