The Colt East Zone tournament is going on at Memorial Stadium and the local Greensboro team picked up a 6-1 over Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania on Wednesday.
The Greensboro Colts had David Coffey out of Ragsdale on the mound and that is a good-to-go move. Coffey, a rising-junior for the Ragsdale Tigers, was unbeaten most of last season.
The word is that Alan Ashkinazy of the Greensboro Batting Center is coaching the team again this year. Ashkinazy took the local Colt All-Stars to the Colt World Series finals in 2006.
Other teams in this year’s East Zone tournament include Long Island, New York; Rockingham County, and Western Branch, Virginia.
