Post 58 Baseball Awards

Coleman-Pitt American Legion Post 58 honored its baseball team Sunday evening with a banquet to celebrate the success of the team and to dole out awards to some of its deserving players.

Post 58 (20-6), Area I champions for the first time since 1986, had five of its players honored.

The team's pitching award went to Brandon Denton. Denton will be a senior at Northern Nash this fall.

The hitting award went to Tyler Clark. He hopes to follow in the Hall of Fame footsteps of his dad Greg as he will enter N.C. Wesleyan in a few weeks.

Cameron Ramsey was honored with the team's Coaches Award. Ramsey will be a part of Wake Tech's first-ever baseball team next spring.

The MVP Award was shared by Xavier Macklin and Ben Fish. No surprise there. The "Bash Brothers" provided the power that led to the team to score nearly 13 runs a game in its run to the N.C. State Championship tournament.

Macklin will return to N.C. A&T for his sophomore season, while Fish will start his freshman campaign at Campbell University.
