Tonight, DP closed the books on the 10th edition of the Upstate Fall League with a twinbill hosted by Clemson University. Throughout the fall, 25 teams from across the area competed for five straight weeks, and tonight we honored 60 players in an extra exhibition game for the talents they demonstrated this season.
The afternoon began with players beginning to roll in around 4:00 by checking in and getting hacks in the cage with the first pitch of the night scheduled for 5:30. By the time the first pitch was thrown, several college coaches settled in behind the backstop as well as a very respectable crowd rolled in to support their respective programs. Mother Nature also provided us with fall like temperatures and clear skies as we relaxed for an evening at Doug Kingsmore Stadium.
