New Home Leopards leave for State baseball tournament

NEW HOME, TX (KCBD) - In just their third year since restarting baseball, the New Home Leopards are heading to the 1A State Baseball Tournament.

On Monday they received a super sendoff. New Home plays Slocum Wednesday at noon in the 1A State Semifinals at Dell Diamond in Round Rock. That excites head coach Brady Webb.

"That's one of the things, I've never even been there. I've seen pictures of it, know some guys who have played there, but I've never been there before. I've been sending the boys pictures trying to get that in their minds. I don't want that to be something intimidating, but fun."

Coach Webb doesn't know much about Slocum, but knows what his team is capable off after beating Borden County in the Regional Final.

"We've all got the potential to put a barrel on a ball, but if we can pitch and we can play defense solidly, I feel good about our chances."
