JDHS baseball coaches bid farewell to seniors

We will never know how good we would have been. I do know that we would have worked hard all year

This season and school year has been a unique one that no one will ever forget. JD’s baseball players have been preparing months before the official start of the season in the weight room and at the field house. We will never know how good we would have been, but I do know that we would have worked hard all year because they were already working hard before the season began. We lost three seniors who we will miss.

Luis Mojica: Luis is a senior who has been an impact player every single year, even as a freshman. He is an extremely hard worker and evolved in being one of our main team leaders. He can play at the next level if he chooses to. I am sad to see Luis leave, but look forward to see what he does next. He can and will do anything he desires to do on and off the ball field.

Abram Lozo: Abram is a senior ball player who played on junior varsity for three years. Abram was a hard worker who really enjoyed the game of baseball. He was very well-liked by all of his teammates and coaches.

Cody Adam is a senior who played on the JV team. Baseball wasn’t his No. 1 choice. He is quite the hockey goalie and stops almost everything. Cody was great having in the program and was a good role model for younger players.

Natalie Zimmerman: Natalie is JDHS’ first manager. I wasn’t sure about a manager in baseball, but after only one day, she proved to be a major asset to me and the team. She is always smiling and happy and that rubs off on the players and coaches as well. She is an amazing cheerleader, too. I am going to miss her at school, on the court and on the field and wish her and all the seniors in the baseball program as well as all the JDHS student athletes the best of luck in the next chapter of their lives.

Israeli Olympic racewalker Shaul Ladany holds his 1972’s Olympic race shoes for a portrait in Omer, Israel, Sunday, July 12, 2020. In an instant, the world record holder in the 50-mile walk was thrust into one of sports’ greatest tragedies and a seminal moment in modern history _ the kidnapping and massacre of his fellow Israeli team members at the 1972 Munich Olympics. The killing shocked the world, gave the Palestinian cause an audience and ushered in a new era of global terrorism. Ladany, a Holocaust survivor, the lessons still linger. He says it taught him to “never be afraid” but become “more careful.”(AP Photo / Ariel Schalit)
