There was a time, quite recently in fact, in when good summer for the Kershaw County American Legion baseball program was being competitive with League III kingpin Sumter, making a good showing in state playoffs and then, call it a day and a season. Tyler Pike is hoping those days are long gone. Last season, his first as the head coach of Post 17, Pike saw his team get off the canvas twice by winning a pair of play-in games inthe same night in Florence which punched the locals’ second ticket to the state tournament in three years.
