The 2021 Season Opener Shutout

The Toombs County High School baseball team opened up regular season action with a big score beating the Dublin Fighting Irish 16-0 in three innings.

The Dublin Fighting Irish is a team under reconstruction. The Irish are rebuilding their program and TCHS is in their third year of Head Coach Derrick James’s coaching and staff. The Bulldogs were ready and showed immediate results.

Junior Logan Knight came out throwing strikes and retired the side to start off the first inning for TCHS.

In the bottom of the first, TCHS batted around and put 13 runs on the scoreboard. Offensively in the first inning, TCHS had six walks and Senior Chase Musselman was hit by a pitch in two back-to-back at bats.

In the bottom of the second, TCHS scored 3 more runs. Those runs were obtained by three HBP’s and one walk.

Toombs County right now is 1-0 overall.

The Toombs County Bulldogs will be back in action Thursday night (Feb. 18) at home versus the Appling County Pirates with the first pitch at 5:45. The weather does not have a promising outlook Thursday and if the weather does not cooperate this game will be played on Saturday, March 6th at 1pm.

The Toombs County Bulldogs will be on the road Friday night (Feb 19) traveling to Grayson Stadium versus the Calvary Day Cavaliers for a game time of 6. Grayson Stadium is home to the Savannah Bananas. There is rain predicted for Friday evening. The backup plan for this game, if rained out, is to play a JV/Varsity doubleheader Saturday (Feb 20).
