I’ll be the first to admit my surprise that the Columbia Wildcats have played well enough on the diamond this season to warrant this article. I didn’t expect all that much from the Wildcats this season after their 9-17 campaign a year ago.
Have yourself a weekend Trey Hobgood. The senior first baseman put on a show at the plate for the Columbia Wildcats over a three-day span and went 6-for-9 with three home runs, 6 RBI and one mammoth walk-off grand slam.
Three weeks into the season and the defending state champion Columbia Academy Cougars (3-6) are still trying to figure out what it will take to win ball games but are playing better than their record indicates.
