Crawford Middle Participates in Diamond Day

Crawford Middle Participates in Diamond Day

After being off for ten days due to rain, the BCMS softball team finally took the field for Diamond Day in Cochran.  Diamond Days are common with middle school softball and baseball programs that allow teams to face opponents from other areas.

Ben Hill County Middle School and Crawford County Middle School were the other teams participating Saturday.  Bleckley won both games, 5-2 against Ben Hill, 9-1 against Crawford.  In the Crawford game, seventh grader Dawson Greer smacked a three-run home run over the temporary fence for the Lady Barons.

It marks the first such home run in recent history for BCMS.  Greer is the daughter of Tony and Kelli Greer.  Bleckley will host Pulaski County Middle School Tuesday at 4:30 p.m.

Rain, Rain, Go Away (for the Braves game)

Rain, Rain, Go Away (for the Braves game)

With rain threatening tonight's Braves game, Twitter has been buzzing with rhymes and catchprases. @cannonsimp had a great idea: let's come up with a catchphrase similar to "Spahn and Sain, and pray for rain" for today's team.  So I did:

Huddy, Maholm, Minor, and Kris,
And when they're done, our Rookie of the Year.
You don't want to face a lineup like this.
May as well pray that the skies aren't clear.
