Grand Slam School Days

Junior Press is a program that promotes journalism and encourages students to learn about this profession. Those invited to join the program will receive a press pass that allows them access to a pre-game interview with players and a media kit with current Biscuits information. Students are encouraged to prepare 3-5 questions for the press conference and will have the opportunity to ask these questions like true reporters. Schools may select two students to participate in the program.

Students who take part in the Junior Press program are asked to write a story after the conclusion of the game that is similar in style to what you may see in the sports section of the newspaper. Stories that are e-mailed back to us will be reviewed and displayed on our web site for everyone to read!

Go out, execute, and win!

On Wednesday April 13, the Montgomery Biscuits hosted the Mississippi Braves in the second game of a five-game series between the two baseball clubs. Montgomery was poised to take two straight games from the Braves after winning the first match 7-2.

The Biscuits' mindset was simple: "....go out, execute, and win", said Montgomery relief pitcher Brad Schreiber. Schreiber enjoys playing at home, saying, "you can feed off the fan energy...it's a good time."

The Biscuits know that baseball is not only a physical game, but also a mental one. Montgomery relief pitcher Parker Markel commented on this subject: "......baseball is such a mental game. People don't really realize.....it is a reactionary game, but also, you have to be mentally sharp out there...especially when you get to the big league level....those guys aren't only just premier athletes and good at what they do, but they're also....mental giants."

Indeed, the Montgomery Biscuits appeared prepared for the game. They won that game in the bottom of the ninth inning when the opposing relief pitcher issued a walk with the bases loaded, thus bringing home the winning run. The Biscuits won 3-2. They will host the Mississippi Braves on Thursday April 14, at 7:05 p.m
