Without its top two pitchers to start the American Legion season, Bonduel is going to need its bats to come alive.
Trevor Pedersen and Wyatt Erb, both starting pitchers for the Bonduel High School team this spring, have injuries that will hold them out of play until early July, head coach Jason Boldt said.
In the meantime, Jordan Boldt will be relied on as the starter, and Brent Pieper will pitch a few innings, but neither of them has much time on the mound.
Behind those two, Jason Boldt will have to count on a few inexperienced pitchers.
“It’s going to be by committee after that,” Jason Boldt said. “Whoever wants to step up and says, ‘Hey, I’ve got a couple of innings in me.’ Because nobody else is really a proven pitcher out there.”
The Grizzlies put up 13 runs on Clintonville in a season-opening victory at home Monday, with the offense improving on its three-run showing in Shawano on Thursday.
