Jackets rained out in summer ball home opener


Thomas County Central’s baseball team endured a one hour weather delay before calling Thursday’s summer ball home opener against Berrien.

The teams attempted to start the game 15 minutes early when looming thunderstorms surfaced on the radar, but were unable to as lightning began to fracture the South Georgia sky.

The JV game prior, which Central lead 4-3 after overcoming a 3-0 deficit reached only fifth inning.

Central coach Joe Dollar, filling in for Chad Parkerson, who was attending an All-Star tournament in Columbus, said the teams will likely shift their next meeting on June 19 at Berrien into a doubleheader.

The initial start time is 6 p.m., though that could be advanced given the consent of a doubleheader, which would require Parkerson’s and the GHSA umpires’ approval.

Thursday’s game would’ve been Central’s home opener in its nine game summer slate, and second overall.

The Jackets met Colquitt on Tuesday, but primarily conducted an aggregated practice with a brief scrimmage to conclude.

Central finished its regular season 12-14 and narrowly missed the state tournament.
