    LAKEWOOD — Evergreen head coach Steve Jones isn’t one to make excuses. The veteran skipper knows a thing or two about baseball and understands when his team fails to capitalize on scoring chances.

    Representing your country in a sport is a dream for many because it is one of the highest achievements possible.
