Four baseball players who were not on the News & Record’s All-Area team deserve special recognition for their performance this season.

– Western Alamance’s Brock Deatherage, an N.C. State signee, was the Mid-State 3-A Conference’s player of the year. The senior center fielder batted .455 with 11 doubles, four triples, four home runs, 33 RBIs, 50 runs and 31 stolen bases.

Blake Deatherage, Brock’s younger brother, batted .505 with 13 doubles, three homers, 43 RBIs and 32 runs. The junior third baseman also went 4-1 with two saves and a 1.96 ERA as a pitcher.

– Southern Guilford’s Ryan Hedrick was a two-time Mid-Piedmont 3-A Conference player of the year and a three-time all-conference selection. The senior, who will play next season at Presbyterian, went 11-0 with a 1.18 ERA and 118 strikeouts as a pitcher for the Storm. He also played shortstop and batted .432.

Taylor Sugg split time with Hedrick at shortstop and pitcher. The junior is a two-time all-conference selection who went 10-1 with a 0.79 ERA and 86 strikeouts on the mound.

    Yep, we did not do a very good job of selecting an All-Regional team, but we hope you will forgive us. LOL.
