In recent games, Seymour baseball coach Jeremy Richey has watched his team make one mistake, and it turns into a snowball.
The Owls had their only error of Tuesday’s home game against Corydon Central in the fifth inning, and the Panthers came up with four hits, received two walks, scored six runs and went home with a 6-4 victory.
“You look at it, we made one error, so we did a lot of things well,” Richey said. “Right now, when we make a mistake, we make a big one, and I think we hang our head as soon as we make a big one, and we don’t quite recover. We haven’t matured enough emotionally to be able to handle a situation like that.
“You can say we’re starting a lot of new players and moving people around with injuries, but the fact is, we’ve got to make plays. To give up the runs the way we did, that’s frustrating.”
