In Loving Memory

Blackstone’s Major League (ages 12-and-under) baseball All-Stars went 1-2 in the District Five tournament at Neblett Field in Victoria. On opening day, players displayed a banner in memory of one of last year’s All-Stars, Corliq “Dre” Epps, who died in December. Corliq (shown here at lower right) was Blackstone’s lead-off batter last year in Farmville and hit a lead-off home run in Blackstone’s opening game. This year’s Blackstone squad lost to Dinwiddie Nationals, beat Prince Edward, then was eliminated by Charlotte County.
