The Graham High School Boosters Easter Baseball Tournament is coming up Friday April 22-Monday April 25, at the Graham Middle School….

This has always been a very successful tournament and it has been going on at the GMS for many years….

The schedule for round one on Friday April 22 goes:
Durham School of the Arts vs. Alamance Christian 10am
Lexington vs. Eastern Alamance 1pm
Western Guilford vs. Southeast Guilford 4pm
Western Alamance vs. Graham 7pm…..

In the semifinals on Saturday they’ll have:
DSA-ACS winner vs. Lex.-EA winner at 4pm
WG-SEG winner vs. WA-Graham winner 7pm

And then they will take Sunday off and play the finals on Monday at the GMS…..There were some very exciting games involving our representatives from SEG and WG last year….Last year I believe WG with Macon Smith, Casey Jones and company, met SEG in the semis and then Graham had a wild one with WA in the other semifinal game and then either SEG or WG met WA in the finals….SEG has been in this tournament and has won it several times over the past 5-10 years and WG has been coming down here for the tournament for a few years too….Again, that SEG-WG game was a very good one last year at the GMS….Tobias hit an early home run and then WG behind Macon Smith and Nin Marrero came right back at the Falcons……This led to that regular season finale, for the conference title at WG, with SEG on hand, at the end of April/early May….That was like a fireworks Friday night finale……

I listened to quite a bit of the tournament last year, on 1150AM WBAG radio and we feel that Joe Gray and his staff, will be carrying the games again this year……

    Spoke with Eddie Sappelt’s dad the other night, Eddie from Southern Alamance, and Mr. Sappelt said that WBAG has been picking up the Southern Alamance games here lately….WBAG 1150 should come in good until the sun starts going down……..

    Sappelts dad said his son Dave Sappelt was the Southern League Player of the Year last year with Double-A Zebulon…..Zebulon with the Reds and now, this season, Dave Sappelt is with Triple-A Louisville, the Louisville RiverBats…..

    Go get ’em Hornet!! They did have good b’que sandwiches over there at SA. If you go over early you can stop by Angelo’s Pizza near the traffic circle at downtown Graham circle around the courthouse. It is in that little shopping center on the right before you get to the circle as you head north. Best lazagna if the Piedmont. Get the garlic bread too and the iced tea is the best!

    If I go over for the Easter Tourney I will have to stop in.

    We always ate at Skids II during the tourney. They have a fresh salad bar and burgers with chili, slaw, mustard and onions. Hmm Good! I may have to try Angelo’s cause I do love lasagna.
