Scout Day: Saluda Tigers

By: David List – February 9, 2010 

DP took a trip to Saluda to see what the Tigers had in store for the 2010 prep season. The rain stayed at bay long enough to get through BP and then the heavens opened up on us. That didn’t stop bullpens though and in the end, we completed all components of the scout day.

Head coach Scott Taylor’s group is laden with seniors and they are hoping to make some noise in a very tough 2A region. They will lean on seniors Nolan Noteboom, Andrew Whittle, Will Black, Brian Bushey and Asa Still. Up the middle they looked ready for the task at hand and, as always, pitching depth will play heavily on the success of this team in 2010. Underclassmen Walker Noteboom and Derek Tucker will also play an important role in this team’s success.
