BRIDGEPORT – The Mustangs got two wins the easy way, though not the way they preferred, last Saturday, March 25, when Lake Roosevelt was forced to forfeit a doubleheader league baseball game they were scheduled to play on Mustang Field. A week earlier, Bridgeport opened its season at Brewster with a 27-0 loss against a strong Liberty Bell team that brought with it some strong pitching and powerful hitters.

BRIDGEPORT – The Mustangs got two wins the easy way, though not the way they preferred, last Saturday, March 25, when Lake Roosevelt was forced to forfeit a doubleheader league baseball game they were scheduled to play on Mustang Field.
A week earlier, Bridgeport opened its season at Brewster with a 27-0 loss against a strong Liberty Bell team that brought with it some strong pitching and powerful hitters.
Behind Liberty Bell the equally strong Brewster Bears handed Bridgeport its second road loss, 12-0, on Tuesday, March 21, adding to the Mustangs’ anticipation to even things up with a pair of wins against the Raiders at home.
But it wasn’t to be.
“Lake Roosevelt had to forfeit, so we got the two victories,” said new coach Jesse Macy, who added: “Not the way we wanted to earn them.”
With only five players above the sophomore grade level, the Mustangs’ roster is packed with eager young players including five freshmen and 11 eighth graders. It’s a great opportunity for the pre-frosh set who will get an extra season of valuable experience and make Bridgeport a power to reckon with in a few years.
 Bridgeport was scheduled to meet the Bears again at Brewster on Tuesday, March 28. The Mustangs will host Soap Lake for their first doubleheader starting at 11 a.m. next Saturday, April 1.
