First Bank Classic Swings into action Thursday

First Bank Classic starts Thursday

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -The First Bank Classic has a good mix among the 16 teams in the field this season. Besides schools that will host the games (Monterey, Coronado, Lubbock, Estacado, Lubbock Cooper and Frenship), Plainview is in the Classic as well as El Paso teams and State ranked Colleyville Heritage.

To play 5 games at home against top competition, Coronado Coach Gary Hix is thrilled.

“That’s the most important thing, you get home and you get to play on a familiar field. That’s always good because playing all those games on the road, that gets to be cumbersome at times. It feels good to be at home.”

Monterey Head Coach Kent Meador agreed with the great experience of the First Bank Classic.

“To be able to sleep at home and eat momma’s cooking and still get the benefits of playing good people in your own ballpark, kids are really looking forward to it.”

Estacado Coach Mark Llanas says baseball is strong in our area.

“Lubbock is a baseball town and I know we are in West Texas, the heart of football. We have some really good baseball from Shallowater, New Deal went to State last year, Idalou, Cooper, Frenship, the Lubbock Schools here, Denver City is going to be really good. Levelland is top five this year. It’s good baseball and a testament to what we do around here. Texas Tech, LCU and Wayland are around. We produce good baseball around here.
