The Clinton Cardinals played Union Chapel at their field on Aug. 11, 2013. The game was shortened because of a severe storm in the 3rd inning. Union Chapel was in the lead 2-1.
The Cardinals want to welcome John Robertson from Bee Branch who played catcher for Coach Robert Prince with the Clinton Yellow Jackets and caught for the Cardinals that day.
It was good to see Donnie “Crazy 8” Bates play alongside his son Kendall “Dizzy Dean” Bates. Donnie was a standout pitcher for the Clinton Yellow Jackets, State Champs, and also in college. Hopefully he can come back and play a few more games with the Cards. The game was postponed because of rain.
The Cardinals are done with their regular season games and will be going into tournament play.
