ST. PETERSBURG - If you're driving along 62nd Ave. N. late at night this week, don't be surprised to see a haze from the lights on at the Canterbury baseball field.
The Crusaders take a lot of pride in their hitting and long hours at practice are paying off. Canterbury has outscored its past two playoff opponents 29-3 and is on a roll heading into the region playoffs.
"On a lot of teams the kids say, 'Coach, what time is practice going to end, ' " coach John Lancaster said. "Our kids are still out here till 11 o'clock at night. They don't ever want to go home."
In the district tournament, the Crusaders (20-5) had 12 hits against Oldsmar Christian and nine hits against Cambridge, plus 40 base runners overall.
Defensively, Canterbury's pitching has allowed just six hits while striking out 21.
"As long as they keep playing the way they are playing, Canterbury is going to be tough to reckon with, " Lancaster said.
