Roster for Doughboys announcedPisgah’s Summey, a Dragoon OF, commits to Berea College (KY)
With Opening Day less than a week away for the first-ever Haywood Post 47 junior baseball team, Doughboys’ manager Eryk McConnell announced on Monday the roster.
“I really like the mix of kids we got from around Western North Carolina,” said McConnell. “The players we selected really wanted to play for this organization. The tough thing was we had a roster limitation and we had to cut about 13 talented young men. That was tough. But there is always next year and we are also planning to start another junior legion team for the 13 to 15 year old kids. Then we can take the 15- to 17 year old boys on the Doughboys. Then we will be in a better position to really develop each player’s baseball talents that play in the Haywood Post 47 organization.”
Assisting McConnell on the junior team will be Michael Munoz, who played at Tuscola and Western Carolina University.
Opening Day for the Doughboys is a 5 p.m. home doubleheader on Tuesday, May 27 against Rutherford County Post 421 at Tuscola Ballpark. The Post 47 junior team plays 24 regular season games with 20 being played at the friendly confines of the Tuscola Ballpark.
The Haywood Post 47 Dragoons open its senior legion (19-and-under) season with a 4 p.m. home doubleheader at Tuscola Ballpark on Saturday, May 25, against Camden (S.C.) Post 17.
The roster for the 2014 Doughboys are Jace Milkey (Smoky Mountain), Ben Williams (Pisgah), Austin Truitt (Tuscola), Cameron Parker (Swain County), Clay Carreno (Tuscola), Ethan Meece (Tuscola), Matthew Ridley (Smoky Mountain), Bret Baldwin (Smoky Mountain), Jacob Clark (Murphy), Tyler Shields (Hiwassee Dam), Jacob Bates (Murphy), Lucas Campbell (Tuscola), Nathan Messer (Tuscola), Kevin Allred (Smoky Mountain), Austin Dahl (Franklin), Zachary Epps (Swain County), Tyler Waleizer (Smoky Mountain), Travis Holden (Smoky Mountain), Cade Barron (Tuscola), Nick Moody (Tuscola) and Jake Sutton (Tuscola).
