Gibbs’ skills make him prime recruit

A lot has been made about the new BBCOR bats and their impact on power numbers at the college levels.

What those bats have also done is put a premium on players who can play “small ball.”

            Tough loss doesn’t sour summer season

            Oxford’s summer season came to a disappointing end on Wednesday.

            Looking to make a run in the NEMCABB Tournament hosted at the New Albany Sportsplex, a young Oxford squad was upended by Alcorn Central 8-2.

            The loss was a difficult one to swallow, but it won’t be what leaves a lasting impression on coach Chris Baughman. (more…) (June 30, 2011, Page 6)

                    Judon having a bounce-back summer

                    NEW ALBANY — Ole Miss’ Jimel Judon looks like a completely different batter on the diamond of the New Albany Sportsplex this summer.

                    Judon’s stance is the same, but his production certainly is not.

                    After recording just two hits in 36 at-bats last summer for the Tallahatchie Rascals of the Cotton States Baseball League, the former Myrtle standout is hitting .400 — good enough for third amongst league regulars — through nine games this season.
