But that’s what has happened to veteran Bountiful head man Larry Wall. It’s a rare year when his Braves aren’t in the thick of a hunt for a state or region title despite playing one of the state’s most difficult schedules year in and year out. “We are going to be a typical Bountiful team,” Wall said as he prepared for the 2014 season. “I am opt...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.
