Locals to play in North-South baseball game

By Paul Adkins - [email protected]

Four Logan County athletes are slated to take part in the North-South all-Star Baseball Game, set for Sunday at Nitro High School.

The game was moved to Nitro after originally being scheduled to be played at the University of Charleston.

The all-star game showcases some of the top senior baseball talent from across the state.

Chapmanville Regional High School outfielder Jacob Dingess has been named to play with the South All-Star team alongside teammate Alex Berry, a pitcher and infielder.

Dingess hit .470 for Chapmanville this season with three home runs and 18 RBI, while Berry had a .414 clip with 20 runs knocked in. Dingess had five doubles and two triples. Berry had three doubles and three triples. Both were named to the Class AA all-state team.

Logan High School pitchers Jared Shawver, an all-state pick in Class AAA, and Chase Burnette have also been tabbed to play in the game.

The game, set to begin at noon at the Nitro High School baseball field, is sponsored by the West Virginia Baseball Coaches Association.

The game provides one last opportunity for the top senior high school baseball players to showcase their talents in front of family, friends, college coaches and scouts.

The North-South All-Star game will actually be a doubleheader. Game 2 will start 30 minutes after the first game.

The games will be seven-inning contests with standard high school rules. The only change is that there will be no 10-run mercy rule and no extra innings.

Admission is $5 for adults and $3 for senior citizens and children under 12.
