Fall practice is winding down for the Tech Nine, and the ritual of the White & Gold World series Baseball. The Georgia Tech captains Dusty Isaacs and Mott Hyde each selected their teams to go head to head in a best of seven series that closes out the fall baseball schedule for the Jackets.
#TeamIsaacs and #TeamHyde have been competing for Tech Nine bragging rights in Atlanta. #TeamHyde won the first two games of the series by a combined score of 15-3
The series was highlighted on Tuesday, as four pitchers for #TeamIsaacs combined for a no-hitter in handing #TeamHyde a 9-0 defeat in Game 3. The best-of-seven series favored #TeamHyde two games to one coming into Friday’s game.
Isaacs has been pleased with the progress his team has made through the fall, “It’s been great. We’ve got a lot of spots open for grabs and we have a lot of young guys who can really play. I think between that and the older guys have really stepped up and done a good job of leading. I think we’re really starting to gel as a team and I’m looking forward to finishing it out strong.”
Georgia Tech Head coach Danny Hall announced that former Yellow Jacket All-American Tony Plagman would be joining the staff as a volunteer assistant coach, replacing Wally Crancer who left to accept an assistant coach position at Purdue. Plagman played the last three years in the Detroit Tigers organization.
