Have yourself a weekend Trey Hobgood. The senior first baseman put on a show at the plate for the Columbia Wildcats over a three-day span and went 6-for-9 with three home runs, 6 RBI and one mammoth walk-off grand slam.
Three weeks into the season and the defending state champion Columbia Academy Cougars (3-6) are still trying to figure out what it will take to win ball games but are playing better than their record indicates.
I watched a ton of Marion County prep baseball over the past week-plus and have learned a lot about three of the four ball clubs. As I write this Tuesday afternoon, East Marion is the only team I haven’t seen play yet.
