NEW ALBANY — The North Delta Dealers have crushed their opponents for the majority of the summer, outscoring their opposition by a league-best 55 runs.
Tuesday, the top-seeded Dealers advanced in the Cotton States Baseball League’s double-elimination playoffs, but it wasn’t without plenty of late resistance from the Tenn-Tom Thunder. (July 25, 2012, Page 8)
With his team in the field, one of Weathersby’s North Delta Dealers teammates strolled up to the right-hander to deliver a message from a member of the opposition: No more “of those” sliders, please.
Weathersby, hunched over at the end of the bench in front of an industrial-sized fan, looked up and simply grinned. (July 16, 2012, Page 6)
In 2012, one of the glaring holes in Ole Miss’ roster was the lack left-handed pitchers. The Rebels had just two on the roster, and only one (Dylan Chavez) saw significant innings. With both Chavez and Jon Andy Scott having either been drafted or graduated, the Rebels once again are in search of southpaws who can pitch significant innings. (June 29, 2012, Page 6A)
Ole Miss right-hander Scott Weathersby continues to dominate the Cotton States Baseball League. Saturday, Weathersby led his North Delta Dealers to a 4-0 victory over the Tallahatchie Rascals by pitching a no-hitter in the seven-inning game.
Weathersby struck out 16 against three walks. In four appearances on the year, Weathersby is 3-0 with a 0.00 ERA. In 15 innings, Weathersby has allowed three hits and five walks against 34 strikeouts. Opponents are hitting just .063 off of the rising sophomore. Fellow Rebel, Jeremy Massie, is also having a good season in the CSBL. The former Northwest Mississippi Community College Ranger is 2-0 in three starts with a 0.69 ERA. In 13 innings, Massie has allowed one earned run on nine hits and six walks. He has also struck out 18.
Massie is expected to join Ole Miss’ team in the fall. (June 25, 2012, Page 7)
