-Summerville Wins 5A Lower State Championship-
“When you love something, set it free and if it comes back”… we all know that line. But last year no one set it free. It was taken away. Out of the blue clear sky, because of a virus, it was ripped from us like a toddler taking a teddy bear away from their playmate. Gone. The 2020 baseball season was cancelled and we really didn’t know how 2021 would play out. But here we are. Playing and watching the game we all love - very thankful and grateful for the opportunity. One team fighting for just one more game. The other, hoping to end it tonight and move on to the 5A State Championship series. I mean, “How can you not get romantic about baseball?”
Tonight, this DP guy couldn’t help but head south, yet again, to settle in and watch this Lower State Championship series in Moncks Corner between the visiting Summerville Green Wave and the home team Berkeley Stags. You have two storied high school baseball programs just 16 miles apart with talented rosters and a passionate following; you knew it would deliver again.
