In 1992, the Warren County Pioneers took the field at MTSU and went on to become state champions by defeating Germantown twice in double elimination.
Saturday, the 2017 WCHS Pioneer baseball team will play Hixson at Patrick Ramsey Field starting at 2:30 p.m. If that’s not enough fun for one day, prior to commencement there will be a ceremony honoring the 1992 Pioneer state championship team.
“We’re really looking forward to this weekend,” said Brent Whitlock, baseball coach and member of the 1992 squad. “We’ve gotten quite a few players together and put a multi-media presentation from some films we have from the time frame. We were fortunate to find VHS footage of some things and that helped.”
Whitlock worked to organize a 1992 Warren County baseball state championship 25-year reunion scheduled for this Friday and Saturday where the first day will be a dinner and get-together followed by watching a game on Saturday at Patrick Ramsey Field. He estimates a good turnout with over 20 players to attend.
Entry to the game is free for players and their families, or $5 at the gate.
