2013 All-Orange Leader Baseball Team


The 2013 baseball season will go down as a very busy season and a very successful season for Orange County teams.

Three teams made it to the playoffs this year as Bridge City, Little Cypress-Mauriceville and Orangefield each punched postseason tickets.

The Bears had to fight it out in a very tough District 20-4A, which is normal for one of the toughest districts in the state.

LC-M finished with a 8-6 district mark which left the Bears and Vidor Pirates in a tie for fourth. The Pirates defeated the Bears 6-5 in the last district game and forced a play-in contest the following day, which LC-M won and moved on to the playoffs.

Barbers Hill eliminated LC-M in the bi-district round.

Bridge City’s annual run to the regional semifinals came up a round short this year as Huffman knocked out the Cardinals in the regional quarterfinals. This year’s game was a lot like last year’s contest between the two schools yet only Bridge City could not defeat Huffman in 2013.

Bridge City shared the District 21-3A title with Silsbee this year. The Tigers, who as of press time were one round away from Austin, defeated the Cardinals in a tiebreaker to have the No. 1 seed.

Orangefield, who finished third in District 21-3A this year, had a great run through the playoffs as the Bobcats also reached the regional quarterfinals.

The Bobcats were eliminated by the Silsbee Tigers in a three-game series. Orangefield defeated Silsbee 5-3 in Game 2 after losing Game 1, 5-1. Silsbee’s Tigers then won Game 3, 6-2.

Let us break down our superlatives for this year’s All Orange Leader Baseball Team.
