Opening Day of the 2020 baseball season was not kind to the Marble Falls High School Mustangs in a 10-0 loss against a talented Llano team at Scearce Field on Monday, Feb. 24

The young Mustangs faced two pitchers that threw 90+ miles per hour fast balls and could barely touch the ball with the bat through the first half of the game.

“Those are two of the best pitchers our guys will see maybe in their entire high school career,” Mustangs Head Coach Tyler Porter said. “Those guys are good. From here on out, we can say no one throws as hard as those guys.”
