It’s a bird, it’s a plane, no it’s a Yellow Jacket.
Moorefield Baseball lost in the Class A state semifinal last year in Charleston, but the power to return comes from within each of the players building strength to improve and hopefully make the flight back there.
The Yellow Jackets are guided by 17-year veteran head coach Wade Armentrout along with assistants Scott Stutler and Jordan Ours.
Moorefield has two returning second team all-state players in junior pitcher Holden Sions and senior captain catcher Wil Schoonover.
Showing his versatility, Schoonover will be trading his backstop gear for an outfielder’s mitt as he will lead the team from center field, but has been creating some dominating pitches from the mound too.
Sions was one of the main reasons the Yellow Jackets reached the state tournament with his tremendous command on the mound, but has been complimenting that with his infield play on the corners.
