Torrington Tigers Insight With Coach Jackson Jones [VIDEO]
The Torrington Tigers were one of the last teams to start their 2022 American Legion Baseball season. Now, they're hoping to be one of the last ones playing.
Torrington didn't open its season until late May. Due to various schedules and conflicts, the Tigers finally debuted after the high school soccer and track and field seasons concluded. They played close to 35 games in about two months to prepare for the postseason.
WyoPreps caught up with assistant coach Jackson Jones, a former player for Torrington, to talk about the team entering heading into the Single-A East District Tournament that's going on in Douglas. Jones felt good about how the team has played, and the improvements they've made but also knew it would be tough to get one of the four spots from the East District at next week's state tournament.
Torrington opened the East District Tournament with a 20-10 loss to the Casper Drillers on Monday. After a bye in the bracket on Tuesday, Torrington is playing Douglas today for a chance to qualify for the Single-A state tournament in Cody.
The Tigers are currently 19-14 on the season.
