Thursday's home game versus Dublin was no ordinary non-region baseball contest at BCHS.  It was military appreciation night.  Active duty and retired military were recognized before the game.  That included former Royal and current Marine, Lance Cpl. Kace Kirkpatrick.  It was also the return of longtime team chaplain Keith Rustin.  He was hospitalized for over two months due to illiness.

The game itself didn't go well for Bleckley.  Zac Evans' seventh inning single accounted for the team's only hit with runners in scoring position in a 10-2 loss.  Numerous scoring opportunities were wasted including a two on, one, out situation in the first.

Thomas Adcock was 2 for 3.  Austin Simmons went 1 for 2.  

Region play resumes Friday at Macon County.  Game time is 5:30 pm.
