Week #2 of the season was a relatively short one as the Tigers were only able to play one doubleheader against the Bryan College Lions and swept it 10-3 and 11-0 on Thursday.  

Players of the Week came from this DH and it was announced Monday that Freshman Andy Clay ( 3B / RHP ) and Sophomore Brandon Day ( 2B ) were this week’s recipients.  Both players went 4-6 for the twin bill and each had an RBI and multiple runs scored.  

Clay chipped in a ringing double in the first game while garnering 3 hits.  Day had 2 hits in each game and chipped in a hit by pitch also.  Both made stellar plays in the field and were catalyst in the Tigers sweep.  

“Both of these guys are most deserving” said Head Coach Greg Dennis, “and we are excited to have each one here and playing at their capabilities.  Day came in here after having played some at LaSalle University last year and has fit into our program really, really well.  Clay played at Loganville HS in Loganville, GA last year and has already made his presence felt both on the mound and at the plate and field.  These two guys also tied for our Off Season Champions Award this past Fall so they have tasted success’ together with some frequency here at Chatt State.”  

Chatt State baseball is proud of have Applebee’s as one of its major sponsors for the 2014 season.

Use The Current Rail System Already In Place - And Response

Why spend $20 million or more on an unproven system to run from the Southside of Chattanooga when we already have the beginnings of a system?  The question apparently has surfaced of why the Choo Choo City doesn't have a rail line. We do have a rail line with the Tennessee Valley RR Museum and their hardware. And they already make runs from the Southside to close to Enterprise ... (click for more)
