SULPUR (KATC) – It was one of Breaux Bridge’s greatest baseball seasons and it ended in one of the most brutal ways.
A 3-1 lead in the seventh things unraveled for the Tigers in the 4A championship, and star pitcher Caleb Seroski could only watch.
“I knew I wanted to be on the mound, but I knew Christian had it. He had it all the way,” he said following the championship loss to Tiaoga.
Seroski and Christian Gonzalez became an elite one-two punch for the Tigers in 2019. Seroski transferred from New Iberia high school and this year the duo dominated. Before allowing a season high 13 runs in the regular season finale Breaux Bridge was allowing fewer than 2-runs-per-game this season.
Next season the duo heads to LSUE to play for the Bengals. A JUCO national championship won’t be out of the question, it never is for LSUE, but a lost state championship is all that’s still on Seroski’s mind.
“It was my last year and I was hoping me and the boys could get it done. In the end I guess God didn’t want us,” he said. “They got it next year, I guarantee it. They got it next year.”
