Tuesday night Will’s team played a team made up of five former teammates. Don’t know if Will realized the manager of his new East Cobb team was watching. Michael struck Will out on three pitches to lead off the game, and later weakly grounded out to first. Ryan T also struck Will out, also on a curve.
