Dalton Horstmeier’s struggles adjusting to a new batting stance and a tweaked swing led Fulton Hornets head Darren Masek to sit down and have a discussion with his senior shortstop.
“… We had a little talk about not trying to do too much and to be the same player you have been the last two years,” Masek said.
Horstmeier ended the game with a three-run home run — his second homer of the day — and finished with four runs batted in as the Hornets overpowered the New Bloomfield Wildcats 16-6 in six innings in the season opener for both teams Friday night at the high school athletic complex.
Horstmeier finished 2-for-4 with four runs scored, a stolen base and the first multi-homer game of his career on a night where the wind was kicking at just the right speed for hitters.
