The Dickinson Midgets baseball captured their fifth class A state title last year.

It’s the most of any team.

Now, their sights are set on doing something no team has ever done: a repeat.

 “The big message we’ve been giving them is that it’s harder to repeat than to get there,” Head Coach Pete Dobitz said.

 The Dickinson Midgets baseball team knows that all too well.

 As much success this program has had, they’ve never put together a championship season two years in a row.

 Dobitz says overconfidence coming into a season got in the way of their previous title defenses.

 He says they’re coming into this year, trying to make sure the team doesn’t get complacent.

 “That’s something we as a coaching staff talked about, that’s something we have to do as a coaching staff, is keep these boys on the right road,” he says.

 With that being said, this team wants and expects to win.

 “We know we have what it takes to win and anything short of that we are going to take as a disappointment,” senior Cameron Jorda said.

But, they know as the reigning champs and this year’s number one team in the state, they’re going to get every team’s best shot.

 “It’s going to take more work than last year because every team wants to beat you because you beat them last year,” senior  Kendall Jones said.

 It’s a new season and they know it’s not going to get handed to them.

 But they know if they work their habits in practice, they’ll have a shot to make history.

 “Practice like you play,” he said.

 Until then, it’s one practice and one game at a time.
