Lincoln County, Bradley Find A Way To Play Baseball

They Head To Cartersville, Ga.; Falcons Post 4-3 Win

Sunday, March 15, 2015 - by Special to Chattanoogan.com

CARTERSVILLE, Ga. – Lincoln County and Bradley Central finally figured out how to beat wet grounds and play a high school baseball game.

They traveled to the Perfect Field Complex in Cartersville, Ga.

Waiting around helplessly to play in a tournament in Athens, Tenn., where games were eventually cancelled, Bears coach Travis Adams contacted friends in Cartersville about playing there and Falcons coach Matt Allen quickly jumped on board.

So, they played.

Lincoln County, playing its first game of the season, scored two seventh-inning runs on a two-out, two-base error and beat Bradley Central, 4-3, on Sunday.

After two quick groundouts in the Falcons’ seventh, Bradley pitcher Austin Calfee walked two and then induced the next batter into a fly ball to left field, which turned into a game-winning error.

Bradley’s Jeremiah had given the Bears a lead on a two-out single that produced two runs.

Sims also pushed across the Bears’ third run in the fifth inning, drawing a bases-loaded walk.

Calfee went 2-for-3 and scored a run for Bradley (1-1-1).

The Bears are scheduled to play East Hamilton on Monday at 7 p.m. at Hixson High School. The Hurricanes’ new field is not quite ready for coach Steve Garland’s squad to play its first real home game in the school’s six-year history.

DACA Or Amnesty To Become The Majority?

As we have the political drama that we see in D.C. let’s be honest about what DACA is all about.

Without an influx of new dependency ... (click for more)

He turned in his paper and, as it was returned with an A-plus, it is only fitting that something this clever should begin this week’s edition of The  Saturday  Funnies.
