The 2019 Pelion Panther Baseball program is looking to take advantage of time and talent as they make a quest to win the region title and make a run at a state title. Coach Barry Fogle and his program are a very talented team that looks to start off with a bang and make a long run deep into the play-offs.
The Panthers will open their season hosting the Pelion Baseball Invitational Pre-Season Tournament that features some talented 2A-4A talent, including Grey Collegiate, Barnwell, and Batesburg-Leesville High Schools. The Panthers begin on February 22nd with local rival Wagener-Salley and will look to take home the title as they will also face Calhoun County, and Silver Bluff before seeding games take place on Saturday, March 2nd.
The Panthers will then travel to the prestigious, Coastal Invitational, with some of the top teams in the state of South Carolina to face off for a weekend of quality baseball that should really prepare the Panthers for a deep run at a region and state title. The Panthers will open up against Waccamaw High School on February 28th followed by 5A Conway High School and Aynor High School with the championship being played on Sunday, March 3rd. All games will be played at Waccamaw High School.
The regular season then opens on March 6th as the Panthers will travel to rival Wagener-Salley for a 6pm first pitch. The Panthers sprinkled in some talented teams to fill in a very tough region schedule that included an appearance by Waccamaw High School in Pelion as well as Calhoun County.
