What a difference a year makes.A season ago, in their home opener, the Kershaw County Post 17 American Legion team held a 7-1 lead over Orangeburg in the top of the fifth inning before the sky opened and left the playing surface at American Legion Park softer than a Twinkie.In spite of the hosts’ trying to cover as much of field as possible with small tarps, the effort was futile. The game had to be started over and was played later in the season on a blistering Saturday morning.Maybe, Tuesday night was a sign from the baseball gods that things will get better for the 17ers this time around.When Mother Nature turned KC’s home field into a makeshift pond, the hosts had already played five complete innings. Better yet, they led Manning-Santee, 13-0.
