Barrientos tabbed to run Stars' baseball

The Western Boone baseball team has a new man in charge. Cesar Barrientos was picked to run the Stars this season, replacing Dave Sloan, who led Western Boone to a 8-14 record a season ago. "I am super excited," Barrientos said in a phone interview Tuesday night. "I am really excited to build a program." Western Boone has struggled in recent baseball seasons. The past four years they have gone 29-79 and have reached double digit wins just once. Barrientos will also be the fourth different coach in four seasons. Barrientos said getting rid of that culture is one of the toughest parts of the job. "Not really having a baseball tradition set is going to be hard," Barrientos said. "We are going to be starting from scratch from the youth levels on up. I told my parents at a meeting that once we start creating a buzz with the third, fourth and fifth grade kids they start getting excited to play. That is how you start a program. I have already talked with the little league and travel teams around the area. We are going to be having some winter camps and coaches clinics so that the kids can see what I want to do."
