Bat Cards recognize their seniors

Three seniors with their coaches

2021 Wayne County Baseball Senior Night

On May 17th, the Cardinal Baseball program took a moment to recognize three very special seniors at the start of the game. Wayne County Baseball Coach Josh Bartley said, “The class of 2021 has symbolized everything that we want our program to be about; hard work, commitment, and a team-first attitude.  It has been a common occurrence to find members of this class arriving early and staying late to hone their craft, work on the field, or just be a helping-hand.  Their tireless work ethic and servant leadership are just a few of the characteristics that make this class so special.”

The announcer addressed the crowd, “Now let’s meet the seniors….”

#1 Tristan Gregory

Tristan is the son of Rick and Shana Gregory.  He is a four year member of the Cardinals and has started for one season.  Tristan, also known as “Yeah Yeah,” is one of the most improved players we’ve had and it’s all due to his hard work and positive attitude.  His future plans are to attend Campbellsville University to further his education.  Tristan’s favorite baseball memory is beating Somerset on their senior night.  Thank you, Tristan.

#5 Jacob Jackson

Jacob is the son of Tina and Michael Jackson.  He is a five year member of the Cardinals and has started for 3 seasons.  Jacob has been one of the most versatile players we have had as he has played every position on the field at some point in his career.  His future plans are to attend Midway University to continue his baseball and academic career with an undecided major.  Jacob’s favorite baseball memory was having the walk off hit to beat Southwestern sophomore year.  Thank you, Jacob.

# 36 Titus Jones

Titus Jones is the son of Kevin and Missy Jones.  He is a five year member of the Cardinals and has started for 3 seasons.  Titus’s strong leadership abilities have been invaluable over the course of his career.  His future plans are to attend lineman school and obtain a job for South KY RECC.  Titus’s favorite baseball memory is all of the hard practices we’ve had and trying to figure out how much longer until Coach Bartley made us run, along with all the late night bus rides and making friendships that will last a life time.  Thank you, Titus.

Over the course of their freshmen, sophomore, and senior seasons, the class of 2021 has accumulated an overall record of 51 wins & 36 loses and hope to improve upon that record for the remainder of their careers.  This class will be remembered for being a selfless group that put their team’s success first.  “To the class of 2021, thank you for your contributions and lasting legacy on our program,” said Coach Bartley.

The announcer added, “The 2021 senior class would like to take a moment to share their appreciation with all of the fans and parents that have supported and done so much to help them along the way.  None of this could have been possible without such support.  They would also like to thank their coaches for the sacrifices they have made to help and guide them throughout their career.”
