2013 Jet alumni game was a battle for the ‘ages’

CROSSVILLE — The CCHS Jets Baseball team recently sponsored the fourth annual Alumni Game on Saturday, Sept. 14. This year's contest drew the most former Jets baseball players out of retirement yet in the four-year history of the event with 21 players. 

Held each September, it continues to grow, with former players traveling to Crossville to play in 'the old ball game' from as far away as Atlanta, GA, according to Jet Coach Dave Prichard.

With an interesting challenge posed by some of the alumni, the two rosters that were formed, mainly pitted the oldest alumni vs. the youngest alumni. 

The Blue team's roster (primarily the oldest alumni) was made up of Aaron Elmore, Chris Higdon, Doug Smith, Jason Mellen, Jeff Dyer, Chris Edington, John Bristow, Derek Polly, Steven Reagan and Kyle McShan. 

For the White team (primarily the youngest alumni) it was Chris Marsh, Aaron Jones, Matt Jones, Dylan Fehr, Zack Kerley, Shawn Scott, Cameron O'Rourke, Donovan O'Rourke, Bryan Woodlief, Daniel Forte and Derek Hankins.

Aaron Elmore and Chris Marsh were the workhorses that took the mound for their respective teams to start the game. 

The Blue team struggled early in the game to knock the rust off. while several players for the White team crossed the plate to score and take the lead. As the bats eventually got hot for the Blue team, the score was 4-3, and eventually was tied up at 4-4 during the game's middle innings, which also turned out to be a good defensive battle on both sides. 

Aaron Jones and Bryan Woodlief each pitched in relief for the White team, while Derek Polly and Steven Reagan were in relief for the Blue team. 

It was truly a battle for the 'ages' as the two alumni squads drove in runs to eventually end in a Blue team victory, with the final score being 10-7 over the White team. 

Reagan dominated the ninth inning on the mound to shut the door on any chance for the White team to score.

"The Jets baseball program is proud of its long line former players and the levels of integrity and success these men have seen since their days as student-athletes at CCHS. We strive to build and maintain a first-class program and to provide the very best facilities, equipment, and personnel possible for current players. The CCHS baseball coaching staff along with the baseball booster club would like to extend a big thank you to all of the Cumberland County businesses and community donors to our program, as without their support none of this would be possible," concluded Prichard.
