The Mayfield varsity baseball team took a trip to Arizona over spring break.

All juniors and seniors on the team were invited on the trip, along with three sophomores.

Senior Sam Coffin believes the trip made him feel closer to his teammates and coaches. “It 100% made us closer because we were forced to eat, sleep, and hangout with each other for a week straight,” Coffin said.

Junior Gannon Rose also went on the trip and believes the trip made him closer with his teammates and coaches. “This trip made closer as a team because we were forced to be with each other, and somewhat live with one another. Just simply waking up for breakfast, or getting ready for bed, were just a few little things that made us feel more comfortable around each other and helped us grow closer as a team,” said Rose.

“The team rented two vans to get to our games and to go places as a team, but when we had free time we would rent electric scooters,” said Coffin.

Sophomore Josh Cope also attended the trip and enjoyed his time there. “My favorite part of the trip was when the whole team was riding around on scooters during our free time… I do think this trip made us closer because we all got to know each other a lot better,” said Cope.

According to Coffin, the team had plenty of things to do during their trip. “We went to an Indians spring training game, explored Scottsdale, climbed a mountain, met Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh, rented boats, saw an Arizona State vs. Arizona baseball game, and went cliff jumping,” Coffin said.

During free time, the team went cliff jumping at Saguaro Lake. “I would say I was the best at cliff jumping, because a video of me was featured on the Mayfield baseball Twitter page,” Coffin said.

Cope believes that cliff jumping at the lake was the best part of his trip. “The cliff jumping was probably the most exciting thing we did, and I would say [senior] Bobby Godnavec was the best at it,” said Cope.

Coffin says that playing other teams in Arizona was a great way to kick off their season. “The competition was great for starting off the season. Although we ruled three out of the five teams, it was nice for the team to build chemistry and get back into the swing of things,” said Coffin.

The team also made a college visit at Arizona State because it was closer than the University of Arizona, according to Coffin. “We saw a baseball game [at ASU], and it was really fun to watch one of the top college baseball teams play a state rival,” Coffin said.

Coffin says his favorite and most memorable part of the trip was climbing Camelback Mountain with his teammates.

Rose also agrees with Coffin that the games they played went well. “The teams we played were great competition and we were able to compare ourselves to other teams we weren’t familiar with, and performed fantastically. I’d say we played about five games, and went to watch a few others. Overall, it was nice that we had about three to four hours of free time each day to just mess around and have fun,” Rose said.

Even with the busy schedule, Cope said he still managed to have a lot of fun. “I enjoyed the several times we went to the mall, and we also went on a lake and drove around on the boats until we found cliffs,” said Cope.
