Former Toombs County Bulldog D.R. Meadows was the starting third baseman and leadoff hitter for the Columbus State Cougars in an exhibition game against the SEC’s Auburn Tigers. A sellout crowd of 1,492 watched the game in Columbus which was won by the Tigers 9-3.
Meadows, who went 1-for-4, stroked a double down the left field line off a 1-0 pitch from sophomore Richard Fitts. D.R. advanced to third on a wild pitch and scored on a single by Marietta’s Isaac Bouton. That run tied the game at 2 in the bottom of the third.
D.R. also popped up to second base on a 1-1 pitch in the first inning, reached on an error by the third baseman on a 2-2 pitch in the fifth and grounded out to second base on a 3-1 pitch in the eighth.
