The summer of 2013 will go down as a summer that 13 select Blackcat baseball players will never forget – their undefeated season.

Under the direction of Coach Larry Adair and Richard Hileman, the high-school eligible team managed to amass 102 runs while only allowing 22 in 10 games over the season.

The team is comprised of Mexia High sophomores, juniors and seniors. For the seniors, this was their last season of regular summer ball and what a wonderful way to end their summer league careers.
