Baseball: Ranked area teams with some big mid-week games

By Jeff Hart Sports Reporter

Several highly-ranked northeast Georgia teams will be in action on Wednesday and Thursday in baseball action around the area and on the national scene.

Buford, which is ranked fourth nationally by Perfect Game, and is No. 1 in Class 6A, will take part in a Perfect Game tournament in Hoover (Ala.) over the weekend. They have a doubleheader scheduled for Thursday with more games planned for Friday and Saturday. The Wolves opened their Region 8-6A slate this past week sweeping Shiloh in a three-game series.

Perhaps the best showdown on Wednesday locally will be Class 3A No. 2 North Hall playing host to Class A Private No. 1 Wesleyan at Lynn Cottrell Field.

Cherokee Bluff, ranked fifth in Class 3A, travels to East Hall.

Meanwhile, Class 4A No. 2 Flowery Branch will play host to George Walton on Wednesday in a non-region showdown at the Hog Mountain Sports Complex. Jefferson, ranked fourth in Class 4A, will play host to Hart County on Thursday.

In Class A Public, seventh-ranked Commerce plays host to Lincoln County in a Region 8-A doubleheader.
