Freshman Joshua Fleisher fields the ball as his coach hits to junior varsity after school. This is Fleisher’s first year on the team.

With the start of a new season, the Birmingham Community Charter High School baseball team hopes for improvement and success.

“I practice everyday to get ready for the games,” freshman Joshua Fleisher said. Fleisher plays third base.

The team’s practices consist of game-like situations to prepare them for anything that may occur.

“We plan to practice a lot so that we don’t make the same mistakes as last year,” the third base player said.

With just a few losses on both the varsity and junior varsity teams, the season is off to a positive start. The teams will need to continue to win their games to avoid the same fate as last year.

As the only student from Daniel Pearl Magnet High School (DPMHS) on a Birmingham Community Charter High School (BCCHS) varsity or junior varsity team, there is a lot of pressure on Fleisher for success. Earlier this year, the junior varsity team lost two DPMHS students due to various reasons.

“My goal is to be the best athlete I could possibly be,” Fleisher said.

The team is hoping to do better than they did last year, when the varsity team didn’t make it past semifinals. 

“I want to improve on everything,” he said. “I always want to be better than the last time.”
