Legion baseball season comes to an end

The American Legion Baseball season came to an anticlimactic close last week for the Post 9 Beaufort Ospreys, as the senior team’s final two scheduled regular-season games resulted in forfeits. The Ospreys didn’t have enough players available to play their final road game at Charleston on July 4, and Walterboro forfeited to Beaufort in the Osprey’s scheduled home finale a day later. 

The senior team, coached by Steven Vega, Wes Anderson, Patrick Talbert, and Al Wallace, finished third in League 1 with a 4-6 league record and missed the playoffs by one game.

Post 9 also sponsored two junior teams this season, with the Junior Blue Ospreys, coached by Richard Jennings, Brian Laing, and Al Wallace, going 9-2 while developing players who will move up to the senior squad next season. The Junior Gray Ospreys were coached by Eddie Baker and Frank Montejo.

Matthew Campbell tied for eighth at even-par 72, Keaton Butler finished 13th at 1-over, and Chris Jones tied for 14th at 2-over to claim one of the last qualifying spots. 

Hilton Head Island’s Andrew Orischak claimed medalist honors in a scorecard playoff over Bluffton’s Charlie Spencer-White after each shot 4-under-par 68. Former USCB golfers Chandler McDonald (Greenville) and Travis Cashion (Columbia) were among three players tied for third at 2-under 70.

The SCGA Amateur Championship will be played August 2-5 at Dataw Island Club.
