If AJ Mason hopes he taught the Williamstown Demons baseball players one thing it is to “never give up.”
The Demons amassed a 4 - 20 record this season, with Mason in his third year as head coach.
Mason said a high point for the team was winning the first round of the All “A” tournament and the low point was not advancing in district play.


The Demons fell to the Simon Kenton Pioneers by a score of 24-3 in five innings in the 32nd District tournament.
“The highlight of the district opening game was when  Zach Rose, a senior, took himself out of the game to allow another senior who didn’t get much playing time a chance to play,” Mason said.
Mason said the rainy spring was a factor in the Demons ability to practice and improve.

He also said the team did not hit at clutch times.
Mason said beating Gallatin County in the first round of the All “A” Classic was the team’s best game of the season.
He credits Derek Cummins, the Demons’ pitcher, with being a game changing player.

Mason said he has been encouraging his players to work on playing more baseball this summer in preparation for next season.
“We will be young, but we will get better each game,” he said.
