SNYDER — New Deal baseball coach Jason Ybarra doesn’t believe in baseball fate. He simply believes in baseball.
And it’s a good thing. Because the superstitious among the New Deal crowd may have believed NDHS was destined to lose after a costly seventh-inning error on a dropped popup with two outs allowed Albany to take a late 4-3 lead in Game 2 of their Region I-2A semifinal series.
An inning later, New Deal (25-3-1) rolled the dice, took the game and the series with a 5-4 win. The victory came on the heels of an 11-4 New Deal victory in Game 1 earlier in the day at Moffett Field.
