(BISMARCK, Mo.) – The Bismarck Indians will look to build off of this past 2018 baseball season. The team went 13-10 this year under its new head coach Chris Hayes. He said his guys got off to a great start to the season despite losing a key player.

Bismarck went 8-1 in the first nine games of the season. After graduating five seniors, coach Hayes said he has confidence in his younger players for next year.

Two of those graduating seniors have signed to play college baseball. Hunter Drake plans to play for Mineral Area College and Malcolm Hawkins recently committed to play for Harris-Stowe State University.
