Wolverines Open Baseball Season Tomorrow At Gordon Central

Sports Writer

The Dade County High School Wolverine baseball season got off to an early start this week when they traveled to Ellijay on Tuesday to face Gilmer County in a scrimmage game. Regular season play gets underway on Thursday when they travel to Calhoun to face Gordon Central in a non-region game.

The Georgia High School Athletic Association moved the start of the season up a week this year, thus the extra early start.

Head Wolverine baseball coach Chris Brown gives the following preview of the upcoming season for the 2023 Wolverine baseball season:
“Dade County baseball will be put to the test this year. This year will not be an easy one. The new region alignment has made it very tough with a lot of very talented teams. With the addition of Trion, Darlington, and Armuchee, Region 7-A D1 will be very difficult to win.

The Dade County baseball team consists of a few returners from last year: Mason Gatlin, Eli Kimball, and Jax Guinn are shaping up to be the go-to guys on the mound and in the field.

Unfortunately, the only senior on this year’s roster was Zeke Wheeler and, due to injury, he will not be playing this year so the team will be very young.

This is going to provide a lot of opportunity for the younger guys to get experience and also step up to perform. This is also going to give the junior class a chance to lead and create a competitive dynamic for the program for years to come.

With this being a very young team, there is still a ton of talent to put on the field and this team will compete with anyone who steps on the field. The best thing about this group of young men is how they have bonded over the last few years and how hard they play and practice for each other. This will be a very challenging year, but I know we have the guys who can handle it,” coach Brown continued.
