When Coleman-Pitt Post 58 heads over to Tarboro Wednesday evening for its North Division, Area 1 East matchup with new Edgecombe Co. Post 316 at Municipal Stadium, it may seem more like a reunion than a baseball game.
Post 316, head coached by Charles Johnson and assisted by Mills Davis, Todd Brewer and Rick Norville, will have six players who played in Nash County this past spring.
Cody High, Drew Fairman and Justin Murray played at Nash Central, Deseray Rosser and Courtney Arrington closed out their careers at Northern Nash, and Brian Graley was a standard on the mound at Southern Nash. Former Northern Nash Knight Jeff Davis, who just completed his first year at Barton, is also on the squad.
Post 316's other players are from Tarboro High (Patrick Ruffin, Drew Davis, Kyle Norville, Matthew Boykin), SouthWest Edgecombe (Patrick Goodwyn, Scott Tharrington, Nick Wells), Williamston (A.J. Peaks, Trey Peaks) and Hobgood Academy (Adam Whitehead).
