It’s like that old line, “You gotta have heart.” That’s exactly what the Dansville Mustangs varsity baseball team will have to run on in the spring of 2011. The horses lost a “lot of key horses” to graduation a year ago and according to coach Tom Hober, “We’ll be very inexperienced this year. We’ll be relying heavily on the arms of Patrick McMullin and Mitch Lamerson. Like any young team, we’ll have our moments early in the season, but despite some growing pains we hope to stay healthy and make a run at the Sectionals.”
