More on Ragsdale-SWG:
From what we were told, this is the way most games are between these two schools. Ethan Ogburn (NC State signee) and David Coffey dominated last night. Ethan gave up a line drive single to Ben Fultz when he fell behind 3-1 in the count. Coffey allowed only two baserunners, a walk to Elliott Slack and a basehit to Bo Rein. Kyle Brandeburg was able to knock in the only run (unearned) in the bottom of the 7th with a shallow line drive to CF, allowing Walt Sparks to tag and score from 3rd. Walt had led off the 7th and got to second base on a throwing error. Liberty head coach Jim Toman was in attendance to see Ben Fultz, Brock Hudgens, and others. I think almost every starter on Ragsdale has D1 potential, and I think a couple are D1 football players as well. On the field last night were – Billy Stone, Ben Fultz, Walt Sparks, Desean Anderson, Mike Whited, Brock Hudgens, Cal Sutphin – all that played for some of the best GBC travel teams – they had some great times traveling around playing ball and it brought back some great memories to see everyone playing and competing at a high level.
