DP Scout Day: Conway Tigers

By: Austin Alexander – February 26, 2009

The 2009 Tigers will feature some new names in the line-up but famiiar faces on the mound, which is where their optomism for the spring lies. Coastal Carolina signee Bobby Watford is on the mend following broken bones in his throwing hand while running "steps" and senior Colby Holmes is back for his final year in a Conway uniform to form a dynamic 1-2 punch in the playoffs.

Clint Richardson and Cannon Jordan look to serve as table-setters while Ryne Hardwick (right) moves behind the plate as a quality backstop to handle the Tiger pitching staff.

Conway opens next Thursday at the IP Classic in a re-match from last year’s State Championship Series when they square off with Boiling Springs. The Tigers would love to find themselves playing for the prize but that will depend largely on Watford’s health and Holmes’ ability to carry the load during the regular season.
