Bulldogs ready to defend bragging rights

THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - When folks in Thomasville hear the word rivalry, they automatically think of their match-up with Thomas County Central.

With that baseball match-up just around the corner, all of Thomasville will probably be cut in half.

With the Bulldogs football team claiming this years bragging rights for fall, the baseball team looks to do the same for spring.

With both the Bulldogs and Yellow jackets getting ready for the post season, this is the game that will set the tone for their race to the title.

“We just wanted to get back to the grind and focus on playing the game itself,” said head baseball coach Erik McDougald. “Not so much focused on a rival or our game Friday night so much as it is executing the things that we can control.”

“Baseball is a bunch of little things," said senior shortstop Nathan Smith. "There’s first and third situations like that. We can catch fly balls and things like that. We can field ground balls and we can hit with the best of the teams out there. We know we can, we’re confident in ourselves and we just got to execute the little stuff.”

The game was suppose to take place tonight, but was canceled due to the storm.

The two hope to find a day they can reschedule before playoffs.
