BRIDGE CITY – The Bridge City baseball coaching staff, led by longtime head coach Chad Landry, honored their 11 seniors Friday night at Chuck Young Field.

An emotional Landry showed plenty of “Big Red” pride by announcing the wonderful senior class video from the stadium PA system.

The Cardinals were ranked No. 1 in the state in Class 4A with a record of 15-0-1 right before the COVID-19 pandemic started right before the Cardinals started District 22-4A play.

The Cardinal senior class was part of 84 wins, despite seeing their last season cut short halfway through.

This year’s team will go down in the record books as far as school records go.

They own the school’s highest team batting average, the best earned run average for a pitching staff and had more steals per game than any other Cardinal unit.

They were also the only team in the state of Texas that had not absorbed a loss this season.

An emotional Landry showed his respect for a great cast of 11 seniors that included Jaxon Bernard, Brice Bana, Colby Collins, Logan Hamm, Peyton Havard, Zach LeJeune, Braydon Little, Jaxon Luna, Jackson Tims, Tanner Wilson and Cameron Yadon.
