Greensboro Green team right at home at Colt World Series in Lafayette, Indiana


With the exceptions of Lafayette and Hoosier North, no Colt World Series team has participated more frequently in recent years than East Zone champion Greensboro, N.C.

When 2010 CWS runner-up Greensboro plays Laredo, Texas, this afternoon in Loeb Stadium, it will mark the North Carolina program’s sixth trip to Lafayette in the past eight years.

Greensboro was runner-up to Tampa in 2006, advanced to the semifinals in 2009 and was beaten 7-4 by Puerto Rico in last year’s championship game.
Right-handed pitchers Jaylin Davis and Corey Kimber, third baseman Mitch Carstens and shortstop Adam Gunn return from Greensboro’s 2010 CWS finalist.

First-year players DJ Reader (first base), Chris Corbett (outfielder) and Matt Horkey (outfielder/pitcher) helped Greensboro compile a 4-0 East Zone record, including a 7-2 championship game victory against Northern Ohio.

“We’re a very aggressive baseball team,” second-year manager D’Angelo Hall said. “When we’re playing well, we’re very aggressive at the plate. We’re also very solid defensively.”
