Fredericktown baseball

The Fredericktown Freddies celebrate after winning their fourth straight district title on May 27, 2021.

FREDERICKTOWN – When Xavier Mullins stepped to the plate Thursday in the bottom of the seventh inning, with the winning run on-base and the season on the line, only one thought crossed his mind.

"We’ve gotta do this for the seniors," the Fredericktown sophomore recalled thinking. "It’s everything to them, and we want to keep them going and achieve our dream of finishing the season with a win at state."
