Mocksville Davie American Legion Baseball
It had been a long night, waiting for the bats to come out. Even after playing from behind for seven innings, and 2 outs in the bottom of the ninth, the home crowd on the hill never gave up. With 2 outs in the bottom of the ninth and 2 strikes, it could have been the end of a great winning season for your Mocksville Davie American Legion Baseball team. It was the noisiest it has been on the hill along the first base line in quite a while.
With 2 men in scoring position, 2 outs, and 2 strikes… on the last pitch of the game, Mocksville’s left fielder, Zach Long hit a double that drove in the tying and the winning runs for a final score of Mocksville Davie 7, E Randolph 6!
After being down 4 runs in the bottom of the ninth inning, that 5 run rally felt like history being made under the lights at beautiful Mando Field in Rich Park in historic downtown Mocksville.
