It is a coach’s worst fear; especially one who oversees a young team.Having lost a 7-6 heartbreaker in 11 innings in Orangeburg Monday night and returning home at 1 a.m. Tuesday morning, Kershaw County American Legion baseball coach Craig Smith was worried that one defeat might lead to a second, the next day. With Dalzell-Shaw in town some 18 hours later, the first-year Post 17 boss’s fears were realized in a lackluster 14-2 loss to the visiting Jets at American Legion Park in a game stopped after seven innings.The game, however, took a back seat to a scary situation which occurred in the top of the second inning with the guests holding a 1-0 lead.With Logan Ingram on third with no outs, the Jets’ Jeremy Harmon sent a soft liner into center field for an RBI single. As he reached first base, a loud popping sound went off with Harmon falling to the ground screaming with what was believed to have been a broken femur.
