Shelton baseball coach Scott Gura feels good about his class of 2021 baseball team.
“Nine of the seven starters had zero varsity experience. To get double digit wins, to have a winning season exceeded expectations,” Gura said of his 10-8 club. “We were getting on a roll at the end of the season. Then we had the misfortune of running into Fairfield Warde, the FCIAC champions (a 3-2 loss) in the second round of states. If you look at how LL played out, 11 of the top 15 seeds got knocked out early. The competition in LL is so tough.”
