Pass Christian Pirates ready for the second round of the 3A State baseball playoffs

PASS CHRISTIAN, MS (WLOX) -

Pass Christian head coach Perry Wilson has no seniors. His Pirates have six juniors, four sophomores, three freshmen, three 8th graders and five 7th graders. Despite being so young, Wilson believes his Pirates have the talent to win-it-all.

Wilson said, "I believe we can. I believe we have the make-up. We have the experience." He added, "We made a run last year and St. Andrews put us out. But hopefully we can get up there and get some redemption and take it all the way."@

Junior pitcher Sean Storey carries a 2-point-5-6 earned run average. He has 45 strike outs in 41 innings pitched. Story also leads the Pirates at the plate, batting .371 with 23 RBI's.

He says coach Wilson, in only his second season as the Pirates head coach, has built a winning baseball team.

"He's coached me for a long time," Storey stated. "I grew up with him and he's definitely changed the program in the right direction."

Junior pitcher Ethan Necaise tossed a one-hitter in the Pirates 10 to nothing win over Prentiss on Saturday. His stats won't set the pitching world on fire, but he's getting the job done when it counts. Despite so many underclassmen in the starting lineup, Necaise believes the Pirates are legitimate contenders.

Necaise said, "We set goals and we worked to get to the goals and we have one more goal and that's to win the state championship."

Sophomore Tyler Ladner carries a .354 batting average and is tied with Storey with 23 RBI's.
