High School Basebal Bulletin Board:
Scrimmages from Saturday…..
Western Alamance 4
Scrimmage at Dudley with the new Ray Crawford Field Scoreboard in place and looking real good and I saw Ray Crawford Jr. at the game and he said he is playing some for UNCG and they had him DH’ing in their game on Saturday…
Dudley played the Western Alamance Warriors tight on Saturday and the game ended in a 4-4 tie, after the last out with Dudley at the plate in the bottom of the fifth inning….Dudley had multiple base runners throughout the 5th inning and had men on, when that last out occurred….(Dudley had fought back to tie the game up in the fifth….)They had two or three games going on at Dudley on Saturday with High Point Andrews and Reidsville, also there for the scrimmages…
Dudley has Corey Williamson, Corey Kimber, Rick Powell, Zanie Seagraves and a few others returning this season and Brandon Burkes has returned to practice, but he has not yet been cleared by his doctors to play in the games for the Panthers….
Corey Kimber will be the Panthers’ top pitcher and he could well be their top overall player and we will have to see how they do when the regular season games get rollling this week….If Kimber has some defense backing him up and if he can pitch twice per week, then Dudley can still be a threat to the other teams in the Metro 4-A Conference…..Getting Burkes back will be a big boost and the inside is Burkes will be back…..He has the will inside to play, he is just waiting on the doctors to turn him loose…..
A good day for baseball on Saturday at Dudley on the Ray Crawford Field…..More coming in soon from Coach Randy “Nat” Norris over at High Point Andrews…….
