Creekside High School
Paulding County High School
Player of the Game
Congratulations to #8 James Walton for being selected the Creekside Baseball Player of the Game.
What a fantastic game! The Walton twins, James and Justin showed up big. They both were big with the bat and defense. Justin followed up an ESPN diving catch on yesterday against Dodge County, with an equally amazing diving catch today against Paulding County he completed a double paly by getting a force out at second base. James was showing his talented arm by delivering show stopping throws from the outfield to freeze runners from advancing. But, James had the hit of the day. After closing the 5-0 lead that Paulding had to a 5-2 lead, the bases were loaded up for James to come to the plate with 1 out. After working the count into his favor, James saw the pitch that every hitter has been dreaming of. He pulled the trigger and stroked a line drive into centerfield that continued pass the centerfielder on t the fence. A base clearing triple. The score was tied at 5 and James completed his tour on the base path by scoring the game winning.
