Weather slows development of young, promising Red Devils
HINSDALE — There is a trick to developing a young team, and Hinsdale Central softball coach Lee Maciejewski is finding that trick a little bit harder to turn this season.
Eight of the 11 players on the roster are freshmen and sophomores. Most of their experience comes from playing girls close to their own age in summer ball so there is learning curve to playing high school varsity ball. The inconsistent weather this spring has had a hand in the development process.
“It’s good for them to come in and get accustomed to the speed of the game and the pitching,” Maciejewski said of his young players. “On the other hand, they benefit from playing games as well as practicing, and if you need to practice something the opportunities to do that are limited because there just haven’t been enough practices, and that has hurt us.
