(Groveland MA) Impressive.
Pentucket sophomore Chase Dwight pitched four shutout innings and drilled a 3-run homer.
Chase’s shot over the fence in left center in the 4th inning off Ipswich relief pitcher Jake Reily scored Joe Lynch and Andrew Melone.
It was only a scrimmage so overreacting in any direction is folly.
However, it seems quite certain that Chase Dwight will play a prominent role for the Sachems in the Cape Ann League regular season which starts later this week.
The Monday afternoon event was played at Groveland Pines.
The prevailing winds there made every ball in the air toward right field an adventure for the fielders. Several drives that way either sliced away, or dropped in front, of fielders.
That same wind turned things from cool to cold for those of us spectators. I lasted four innings.
As is the habit with a scrimmage, there were no numbered uniforms worn or rosters available. I took pictures but won’t be putting names to most of them.
I do plan to post the unnamed ones on Instagram (mcclellandmiscellanea) asking for IDs. Once I get the names, I will add that picture to my online blog (McClelland Miscellanea) coverage of the scrimmage.
(All of the pictures will enlarge considerably if you click on them.)
