Hervey dealing for North Delta

Monday night’s gusty weather at the New Albany Sportsplex could be attributed to the thunderstorms that rolled in. Or it could be attributed to the amount of swings and misses that took place during the North Delta Dealers’ showdown with the Tallahatchie Rascals.

To say Tank Hervey was dialed in on Monday night would not do his performance justice.

Of the 17 Rascals outs that the right-hander collected during the rain-suspended Cotton States Baseball League game, which was called after 5.2 innings with the Dealers ahead 3-0, 12 were strikeouts. (June 29, 2010, Page 8)

Finding the barrel imperative for hitters

Hall of Famer Ted Williams was once quoted as saying, “the hardest thing to do in baseball is to hit a round baseball with a round bat, squarely.”

Used to the enormous sweet spot on aluminum bats used in the high school and college ranks, players are having to adjust in a major way. (June 14, 2010, Page 6)

Decision time coming for White

White has been gathering input on whether he’s good enough to be picked in the first round of the upcoming draft since early April and with his school commitments now out of the way, White has been working hard trying to impress NBA brass during individual workouts. (May 5, 2010, Page 9)

Lafayette girls’ game Monday was a classic

AROUND THE SQUARE AND BEYOND — Among this week’s topics, the LHS girls-New Albany North Half Finals showdown was one of the ages, NAHS head coach and former Ole Miss great John Stroud deserves to have his number retired by the University and former area high school baseball players are beginning to suit up for Northwest C.C. (February 24, 2010, Page 8)
