Rattlers set for run to baseball playoffs

February 20, 2013

The 2012 Tolar baseball season was something of an enigma.

The Rattlers had talent. Just ask state semifinalist Brock, who had to rally from a huge deficit at home to win 9-8.

However, Tolar went from a strong start to 1-13 in district.

Six returning starters has coach Trey Holcomb things will be different this season.

“I strongly believe we will be a playoff team this season, and with hard work and a few well-timed blessings we could even compete for the district title,” he said.

Returning starters for the Rattlers are senior first baseman/pitcher Cole Chism (7 doubles, 9 RBIs), sophomore shortstop/pitcher Dusty Kimmel (.344 average, 7 doubles, 17 RBIs; 3-3, 3.38 ERA), sophomore third baseman/catcher Dakota Endsley (.310 average, 10 RBIs), senior outfielder/pitcher Oompa Glavin (.288, 12 RBIs), senior outfielder/pitcher Tyler Phillips, and senior outfielder Alfredo Triana.

Holcomb describes the Rattlers’ major strength as pitching.

“We have a lot of it,” he said.
