Coaches vs. Cancer Classic results

April 9, 2012

    Short of adding a fourth team (which every coach mentioned post-game), the Adams County Coaches vs. Cancer Classic was a great event and fit its description perfectly: classic.
    Game one: Adams Central vs. Bellmont
    Every time that AC would put up some runs on the board, coach Ben Fawbush and his Braves would respond with an answer. The final result was a thrilling 10-7 win over the Jets that started off a trio of baseball games that would not disappoint as the day went on.

Starfires blank Winchester

April 4, 2012
