Our Top 5 Fan list today comes from by good friend Danny (yes, that Danny)…
4 The Sopranos
3 The Big Bang Theory
1 Sports Center
Twenty years ago tonight James Island won its first State Championship in baseball. The team was down 1-5 in the bottom of the 7th (final) inning with one out and things not looking so good. But nobody gave up… and 3 Fort Mill errors, two walks and two wild pitches later the game was tied. The boys held Fort Mill scoreless in the top of the 8th. Fort Mill got two quick outs in the bottom of the 8th before walking the #9 batter… which was followed by an intentional walk then an unintentional walk to load the bases. 1 wild pitch later and history had been made. Oh what a night…
