CENTRAL ALABAMA SCOREBOARD OFFICE – After missing the state tournament last year a focused bunch of Brew Tech Rams have been tearing up diamonds to start the season. With a mindset of “Work Harder” the Rams fastballed their way into the season sweeping the field in the Brew Tech Tournament knocking off Selma and Fayetteville (a combined 29-0). They followed suit with another shutout of Fayetteville and a tournament clinching victory over Jeff Davis (13-0). 

“We want to start our playing a competitive schedule and give our kids a chance to learn how to play and how to win and let them build up their confidence,” said Chris Steiner first-year Brew Tech Coach. 

Steiner has her girls coached up early. Just look at the play of CASCoreboard’s Inaugural Player of the Week Tanyah Brown. In the first few games, the junior ace has posted a .52 ERA with 49 strikeouts while working 27 innings over six games. When she’s in the circles, opposing batters are batting an anemic .110. 

At the plate, she’s a founding member of the Brew Tech Bomb Squad: batting .619 with 13 RBIs, nine runs scored and four home runs to go along with her five singles and four doubles. 

But the competition the Rams faced to open the season pales in comparison to what they are going to face this weekend at Panama City Beach. 

Steiner: “I am excited to see what we do in Florida, against some different teams from different areas. I am looking for our kids to challenge themselves and to understand competing at a higher level. The first couple of weeks we are working on getting some experience, trying to find people to fill roles and to get comfortable with this team and these coaches.”

Nothing says team building like a highly competitive road trip. 

In four pool over two days the Rams will line up against Sneads (Friday at 4 p.m.), Chiles High (Friday at 8 p.m.), Georgia’s Liberty County High (Saturday at noon) and will wrap things up against Mosley High (Saturday at 2 p.m.).

Steiner: “I think it’s a great opportunity to be put in situations and work out the kinks. I like to get out of the norm and play people from other areas. We want to face different types of competition and it will be a fun trip. The girls can bond and work through some adversity together. It’ll be a good trp. We’ll learn from the experience and hopefully will prepare us for a challenging schedule and area.”

Last season – Brew Tech’s area featuring Tallassee and Beauregard – was one of the most competitive in 5A. 

Steiner: “We have to play a competitive schedule to get ready for the big games.”
