2013 "Georgia Peaches" Enjoy the Sweet Taste of Victory!!
The day began looking a little bleak on Saturday, September 21,2013 as the 13 "Georgia Peach" team members made the 60 mile drive to Greenville despite the 70% chance of rain forecasted. Upon arrival we were a bit overwhelmed by the 34 well-dressed "Shoeless Joes" who were practicing on the field. The Peaches, ranging in age from 12 - 55 years old, knew that with the upcoming double-headers there was no room for injury or self-defeat as all would be required to do their best with minimal substitution. The Peaches, essentially strangers, bonded quickly and played well. They stayed within a point or two of the veteran players. They got 2 runs to tie the game in the bottom of the 7th. An extra 2 innings were required for tie-breaking and the Peaches ended up earning the Championship trophy for the year winning the game 8 - 6. The Joes were great hosts and served a fantastic lunch between the two games. Everyone was wet from a slow drizzle all day but no one had dampened spirits. The Joes played many of their rookie players and the Peaches won game 2 with a score of 13 -6. For the second year in a row we had rain and Peachy victories.
