"Tigers finish season 11-11" by: Eddie Russell Tidehaven Baseball Coach

 Tidehaven lost 14-0 in the first round to New Waverly in a one game playoff series.  
   Gordo Moreno had the lone Tiger hit. 
   The Tigers finished the year 11-11.  
   The game was close early but the wheels came off and New Waverly was too formidable of an opponent that particular night. 
   The end of the year is always tough when you lose your seniors. 
   I appreciate all the work they have put in the past four years and they will definitely be missed in the future.
