CollegeBaseballCentral.com interviewed me recently on several topics regarding college baseball in South Carolina. Below is a link. In the comments section of this post, let me know whether you think my answers were hits or misses.
Clemson introduced Monte Lee as its new baseball coach on Monday. I'd accepted a Monday free-lance assignment in Spartanburg before Clemson changed its press conference from last week. I wish I hadn;t because the Spartanburg assignment turned out to be a dud.
One of the things I like doing on this Website is finding tidbits regarding baseball players at South Carolina colleges and sharing that information.
Here's one instance where I hate doing it.
Sharonda Coleman-Singleton, one of the nine people killed in the shooting at Charleston's Emanuel AME Church on Wednesday night, was the mother of Charleston Southern freshman baseball player Chris Singleton.
Mrs. Coleman-Singleton also was a pastor at the church, a speech therapist and the girls track coach at Goose Creek High School.
Chris Singleton played 50 games for the Buccaneers in 2015, batting .245. Earlier today, he was named to PalmettoStateBaseball.com's freshman all-state team for NCAA Division I schools.
Without getting too preachy, many of our world's problems would be solved if more people got their hearts right with God.
