Attention Members, Users, Readers, Fans, College Prospects:
This week Thomas Nelson Community plays four home games (2 DH) against Southside Community College (Tuesday 1 and 3) as well as Apprentice School (Thursday 2 and 4). The Gators on the season are 8-9 but are playing better of late recently on a seven game win streak.
To all College Prospects come on and check us out and what we are about. We are a member of the Virginia Community College System (VCCS) but will be moving to the NJCAA next year and are looking to grow our program into a local power house and ultimately put players in a position to get the needed experience to make it to the next level.
The spread of JuCo ball through our community colleges is one of the great unsung stories that our HS kids need to know about. We've been woefully short of JuCo opportunities in the past, so it's great to see you doing well.
Yes, Allen Elledge or "Hurricane" as he is commonly reffered to as, is still the coach of the Gators. There is only one legitimate draft prospect at Thomas Nelson, a local guy, Cody Cox. There are several other college prospects on the team that are ready for the next level. Coach Elledge has done a good job developing the prgoram and is ready for the next step as the Gators step into NJCAA next season.
Todays contests between Thomas Nelson and Southside Community have been washed out. No makeup date has been announced. The Gators next games are on Thursday vs. Apprentice @ War Memorial Stadium at 4 and 7 PM.
Come on out tonight and check out what Thomas Nelson Baseball is all about as the Gators are set to take on the Builders from the Apprentice School. Game time is at 6 PM at War Memorial Stadium in Hampton, VA. Admission is free and there will be a concession stand available.
