The Moffat County High School varsity baseball team’s trip to the 4A state playoffs last season was no fluke. Four seniors, including 4A Western Slope League co-player of the year Ben Williams, anchored the team. The Bulldogs scored double-digit runs in six games and routinely saw the ball fly out of the park at the hands of multiple batters. But this season, head coach Justin Folley said how his players fill the roles of the four departed seniors will determine if the Bulldogs make it back to the playoffs.
