Difficult preseason schedule gives Dinos preview of best in state

Joe Via frames for a pitch from Mike Smith. Via returned to catching for Carbon after an ACL surgery took him out of the rotation last season.

Every year the Carbon High baseball coaching staff looks to create the best players possible.

However, the cost of an able team can often come at the price of a poor early season record.

So far this season, the Dinos have been paired with some of the top ranked teams in the state.

"By no means is our schedule kicked-back this spring," head coach Lane Herrick pointed out.

The Dinos participated in the southern Utah Pizza Hut Classic last weekend and competed against some of the best teams in 3A baseball.

Carbon came away from the tournament 1-3.

In the opening game against Grantsville, the Dinos had moments of congruity but struggled to keep it together for the entire contest.

"Our runs came late in the game and we had a lot of defensive errors," Herrick remarked.

Grantsville took the game 7-2.

Carbon then took a 12-5 win over Window Rock, Ariz. and followed it up with a tight 3-2 loss against Cedar City.

Carbon ended the tournament with a 16-6 loss to Dixie after leading the Flyers 5-0.

However, Herrick is not concerned with the team's record.

He said he saw a lot of promising things during the tournament, from batting to defense, and knows the boys will be in full stride when the Region 8 season begins on March 26 at Emery.

"We'll turn things around this week," he projected. "Anytime we can come out of spring with a 500 record we feel very comfortable."

The Dinos host Spanish Fork today before leaving for a Colorado tournament.
