Teams of the Week
 Pima 3-1

OK so for the first time this season the team of the week is not one that had an undefeated week of play but one that made a HUGE STATEMENT with the week that they did have. 

Pima Hosted #1 College of Southern Nevada this past weekend to kick off their season. The took 3 of the 4 games from the Pre-Season Consensus #1 Team. With 2 of them being in a decisive manner. 

When Asked about his team and this past weekend Coach Jacome had this to say “I think our team is a bunch of blue collar hard working kids who compete.  Playing CSN was a great challenge for us and I believe we gained a little confidence in knowing we can compete with anyone in the country.“

They lost game one in a nail biter that came down to the end 8-9. They began to rally back in the bottom of the 9th with 3 runs but fell just short of the comeback. After a rough start from Wilson Bannister (4.1 IP, 8 ER, 4 HR) Darius Garcia came in the 5th and held Southern Nevada at will only allowing one base runner the rest of the game. Both Daniel Duazo (2-2, 2 BB, 2 R, 1 2B) and Parker Schmit (1-2, HR, 2 RBI, 1 R) led the way for the offence that again just fell short. 

Game two was a slugfest on both sides with a combined 10 extra base hits coming by the easy of 5 Home runs and 5 Doubles. It was won in the bottom of the 8th by a a Walk of hit by Terrel Huggins. 

The Next two games they won 7-4 and 17-9 and we will let the Pima Athletic Department tell you how those went

Div 1- Appalachian District Preview (Reg. 7 & 17)

Welcome back to the world that is the wonderful world of Junior College Baseball. With this being the first Major piece of content that we are putting out for the 2021 season. Each District/Region will have their own preview. This will include a Quick “Recap” or over all look at the region as a whole before a deeper dive into the All-District-Region Teams, How we (Noah and Chirs) think this year is going to pan out. And then to wrap it up a look into a team that we think is someone that we either really like or one that we think is going to surprise some people if they are paying attention to them. If you need to get a membership click this link and it will take you right over to where you can sign up! If not Welcome back let's have a fun 2021 season!

This District the past few years has been dominated by Walters State. They have claimed the crown the last two years (not including 2020 because ya know…. Covid and stuff). Making it to the National Title in 2018 to Chipola and finishing 4th in 2019 with both losses coming from the two teams that made it to the national Championship (Iowa Western and Central Arizona).

On the other side of this District (Georgia) has been a fun battle to follow. With Gordon State rising up the ranks in 2019 but eventually falling short in the District Title Game against none other than Walters State in two extremely close games (5-4 and 5-2).

There is a plethora of talent across this entire region (and country) with some of the players being:

Walters States-Caleb McNeely and Jerry Hammons

Gordon States-Cole Phillips

Georgia Highlands-Johnny Dow and Trace Twardoski

Abraham Baldwin’s-Sam Bennett and Henry Daniels

Andrew’s- Jacob Pierce and Robert Malone

Chattanooga State’s- Kobe Robinson

And 

Dyersburg State’s- Chris Mondesi and Griffin Miller
