High Schools go to a Pitch count.... (very similar to Little League counts)

High Schools in SC are going to go to a pitch count.  Little league has been doing this for some years now.  So it is nice to see high school making the switch to look after our boys arms.  

It is very interesting to see that the pitching thresholds are very similar to little league.

Greenville Drive to honor Northwood Teams 8/30/16

TONIGHT during the game at 7pm

MINORS BLUE WINS STATE CHAMPIONSHIP!

Congratulations to our Minors Blue Team that won the South Carolina State Championship at Corey  Burns on July 15th!    This team will now travel to the Tournament of State Champions on July 22 to compete for the Southeastern Championship in Greenville NC. 

Greenville Red came out hot scoring 3 runs in the bottom of the 1st and 3 runs in the bottom of the 2nd as rain came down at Corey Burns.   However, Northwood continued to battle through tough conditions and scored one in the 3rd and one in the 4th to cut the margin to 6-2.  After a sterling play from Cooper Noble to Peter Mershon on a throw from left field nailed a Greenville runner at home plate for the 3rd out in the 4th inning,  Northwood caught fire and scored 11 runs in the Top of the 5th to take a commanding 13-6 lead.    Both offenses stayed quiet the final 9 outs and Northwood scored a convincing 13-7 win over Greenville.  

Great pitching performances from Nelson Vaughan,  Dru Nelson and James Kakaras led the way for Northwood.    Solid defense from infielders Bryce Harder,  Jack Wyland and Matthew Roberts played almost flawless baseball through the final 4 innings. 

James Kakaras, Kai Tullos, Peter Mershon, Charlie Marchbanks, Mac Headley and many others contributed at the plate with key hits during the 11-run explosion.    Luke Parker and Ryan Maloney had key at bats and pinch ran throughout the 5th inning. 

Coach Bill Harder explained after the game, "This was a total team effort, every kid on this team contributed to the win in some way, either through pitching, hitting, defense or base running". 

The manager of the Blue team is Mike Noble and the coaches are Bill Harder and JD Nelson.
