The 9th Annual South Carolina Diamond Invitational was, again, star-studded and filled with teams whose expectations are high as the playoffs approach next week. A very talented field, including four region winners, was assembled again and allowed fans to enjoy some individual exploits along with contests that rolled out game after game with late inning drama! And speaking of late, we mean really late on “Day” 1.
Eight teams from two area codes invaded Blythewood High School's immaculate playing surface and facility that seems to add a new feature each year to a venue that is already envious for most prep programs. Accompanying the host team for this event was: Chapin, Dorman, Dutch Fork, Lexington, Spartanburg, TL Hanna and Wren.
DP was propped up for the entirety of Days 1 & 2 at "The DI", we did not miss a single pitch. In lieu of lengthy recaps, we will connect you to the event website for those details as we focus on some more important evaluation aspects of what we saw through our lens.
