It’s almost time for last year’s seniors to head off to college. Since we’re talking about the Boys of Summer, we want to know, what local kids are on a college baseball roster?
We addressed this issue a month or two ago during Palomino season, and heard about a number of local kids that will play at the next level. There are those that are going to try to walk on and earn a spot, there are others that have a spot. Who has a spot?
The latest we hear about at greensborosports.com is Kevin Rose. Kevin has committed to pitch for Louisburg College. I remember Kevin as the shy kid at Grimsley that Alan Ashkinazy was grooming as one of his main guys for 2009.
Kevin got the opportunity of a lifetime his junior season (2008) when Alan gave him the start vs. Page at NewBridge Bank Park. With excellent defense behind him, Kevin responded with a no-hitter. Big Jim and I made the radio call for that game. It was a pleasure to watch.
Kevin is one of many kids that learned to play the game at the Greensboro Batting Center. I know there are others out there. Who has a spot?
