SIKESTON -- It was a roller-coaster season for Burger King this year in the National League of Sikeston Area Youth Baseball.
The King had a disappointing first half, but caught fire in the second and put together a five-game win streak.
The squad finished the year with a 7-5 record, taking fourth place in the league.
So how would head coach Jeff Martin describe the season?
"Not as good as I expected," he said. "We really struggled in the first half of the season, and I really don't know why. We did start hitting the second half and played pretty well."
Cody Reed played first base, Josh Pierce was at second, Dylan Drury was at short and Zach Howard was at third.
Adam Martin was the team's ace and Dakota Trevino was behind the plate.
It the outfield, Kaleb Fisher played left, Charlie Bohannon was in center and Ken Barkett was in right. Bryan Armstrong was the team's designated hitter.
"We had a solid infield," said Martin. "(Reed) really turned into a good first baseman, and we had an all-star centerfielder (Bohannon), which is a luxury in the league. But I don't know if we had an MVP. We had a very, very good defensive team. Everybody contributed on different nights."
Members of the 2002 Burger King team in the National League of Sikeston Area Youth League Baseball are Adam Martin, Josh Pierce, Dylan Drury, Charlie Bohannon, Zach Howard, Bryan Armstrong, Cody Reed, Kaleb Fisher, Dakota Trevino and Ken Barkett.
