CHICKASHA – From solid hitting to great catches at first base, Zach Gonzalez has been a crucial part to the Drover baseball program for the last two seasons. In fact, he may be best known for his sliding splits first.
“In junior high, I just went out to try to get somebody out, and I just happened to be in the splits. Every since then, I just go out there and try to look good doing it,” he said with a laugh.
The Drovers are 32-14 going into two final Sooner Athletic Conference series, including one against No. 19 Oklahoma Baptist.
