  • Legends game honors Coach Coots

    Carroll County High School head coach Jay Jones hit a grand slam in the top of the fifth inning to give the black team an 18-8 win over the gold team in the second annual Bob Coots Legends game held Saturday at Panther Field. The score is especially significant because Coots was No. 18 when he was the Panthers’ head coach.

    Jones said Coots coached in the 1980s and 90s and died last year, which is why the game began. Jones said Coots was a pitching coach, but knew all aspects of the game.

    “The three-run homer, that was the difference in this game, and that’s on my shoulders,” Carroll head coach Ken Blair said. “That’s my inexperience calling a softball game.”
