Chris Baughman

Surprise appearance may turn into regular occurrence for Gibbs

COLUMN: Saturday evening the following line came across my Twitter feed: “L. Gibbs: W (1-0), 6.1 IP, ER, 2H, 2BB, 5K, 103 pitches.”

Chargers stay tough, take Classic

Oxford baseball coach Chris Baughman held a meeting with his team Wednesday about facing adversity and staying mentally tough.

It didn’t take long for the meeting to be put to the test, as the Chargers had to respond to an early deficit in order to defeat Lafayette 6-5 Friday night at Edwin Moak Field in the Crosstown Classic. (more…) (March 12, 2012, Page 3B)

Baughman: OHS should be fine with new bats

The way Oxford head coach Chris Baughman looks at it, this may have been the perfect year for high school teams to implement the new BBCOR bats that college players swung last year.

Chargers learn from sweep of Amory

As Chris Baughman found out Monday, there’s nothing wrong with learning a thing or two on your birthday.

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.”

One player who could benefit greatly from the switch is Oxford’s Luke Gibbs.

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)

LHS seeing improvement; OHS adapting to new bats

Thursday’s crosstown doubleheader between Oxford and Lafayette’s baseball teams provided plenty of positives and learning experiences for the two squads involved.

For coach Greg Lewis, whose Commodores won Game 1 4-3 before dropping the nightcap 11-8, he was glad to see improved defense from his infielders. (more…) (June 10, 2011, Page 9A)

Gibbs’ big hit leads OHS past Lafayette

In a matchup thats outcome is generally decided by a timely hit, the Oxford Chargers were able to come through in the clutch to claim a 6-4 win over crosstown rival Lafayette Saturday afternoon at W.V. Brewer Field. (more…) (April 4, 2011, Page 7A)

Abundance of errors dooms Chargers

Committing five errors in a single game is going to make for a long evening for any team.

The Oxford Chargers found that out the hard way on Tuesday, falling to Saltillo 14-4 in five innings at Edwin Moak Field due in large part to a difficult day in the field. (more…) (March 30, 2011, Page 7)
