Beuna Vista leads a crowded field in the Iowa Conference baseball race. The Beavers are 8-3 heading into this weekend’s series at Central but four other teams are within two games in the loss column.
Coach Steve Eddie says there are a number of solid teams that are "scary", but he says the good thing is they all play each other. Beuna Vista is 21-5 overall and ranks near the top of the Iowa Conference in several offensive categories. He says they have a good combination of speed and power and have been able to put the ball into play and generate runs.
Eddie says another key is a pitching staff that has a lot of depth, including 11 guys who have earned a win on the mound. he says whoever is pitching has been doing the job, as they don’t have one big starter.
