AROUND THE SQUARE AND BEYOND — Bradley Roberson may not be coaching high school baseball any longer, but he still has a pulse on what’s going on in the sport and the upcoming playoffs that start on Friday.
The Chargers played a good portion of the teams left in the playoffs, including Independence, which faces Water Valley in the first round, and Lafayette, which plays against former Region 2-4A foe Cleveland in the first round. (April 28, 2010, Page 6)

Playing their first games without three starters who were dismissed from the team earlier in the week, the Commodores defeated the Lions 20-0 and 15-0 in two mercy-ruled games at W.V. Brewer Field. (April 19, 2010, Page 4B)
A violation of team rules over the weekend has cost the Lafayette baseball team three starters for the remainder of the season.
Senior pitcher Matt Taylor, senior outfielder Denzel Goolsby and junior outfielder Ontario Phillips were dismissed from the team by coach Greg Lewis on Tuesday. (April 15, 2010, Page 6)
Led by the stellar all-around play of Hunter Robinson and the solid relief pitching of Luke Stanley, the Commodores were able to flush a disappointing one-run loss to Lewisburg on Friday night by overcoming an early 3-1 deficit to knock of the Blue Devils. (April 12, 2010, Page 2B)
A dominant pitching performance from Lewisburg’s Aaron Greenwood left Lafayette coach Greg Lewis a little bummed out on his birthday and the Commodores with their first Region 2-4A loss on the season.
Greenwood held the Commodores hitless through the first six innings of an 8-4 win by the Patriots at W.V. Brewer Field Tuesday night and ended up with nine strikeouts. (April 7, 2010, Page 6)
The Lafayette baseball team has had a way with living on the edge since division play started, and whatever it’s doing is apparently working.
On Thursday, the Commodores were once again able to overcome adversity and rally in the sixth inning to defeat the Senatobia Warriors 8-7 at W.V. Brewer Field. (April 2, 2010, Page 6A)
