dp Grand Strand: Ripkenpalooza

By: Jon Helsabeck & Austin Alexander – October 20, 2021

Ripken Griffithfl21Like sand through the is the dp Grand Strand Fall League. A league that was over 15 years in the making, the six-game season is now gone, like last winter’s snow fall (except we never see the white stuff in these parts). As in every case, this evaluator is expected to write up the game he covered and deliver prospect info. Which I'll get to momentarily, however for now, I must send a tip of the cap to many people.

First off, the players. They were pioneers in being the first cast of the Grand Strand Fall League play and we commend you! The parents for being the staple of excellence and bringing their players to the ballpark every week and the volunteer coaches who stepped up when the high school ships didn't choose to weather the storm. And of course, to Mr. Pete Fitzpatrick…you sir are Horry County's baseball angel and we thank you for everything!
