The last time the Nathanael Greene Academy baseball team took the field, the Patriots experienced one of the wildest games one could imagine.
NGA took on Central Fellowship Christian Academy on April 4, and a bevy of mistakes combined with solid hitting by Central Fellowship had the Patriots in a deep hole. At one point, the score stood at 18-4. The final tally was 18-16.
Although the Patriots dropped the contentious game, their head coach, Garey Clark, was impressed by his team’s refusal to go down without a fight.
“We came battling back,” Clark said. “Their pitchers struggled, too – they walked a bunch of us. I think their guy had 12 walks or something. ... And when they did throw strikes, we hit them. We had three or four doubles. Next thing I know, it's 18-16 and we've got a shot.”
