The time has finally come! The “boys of the spring” are here with America’s favorite pastime! Toccoa Falls College’s Screaming Eagles, led by first-year head coach Nathan Bowen, play their first home game this Saturday, February 13, starting at 2:00 pm. They will be playing against Tennessee’s Johnson University.
Last year, the TFC team finished with a 28-23 final record, continuing the long-standing tradition of having a winning record by the end of the season. With a solid young team and a new coach to reinvigorate the program, there is no better time to get behind them than this year!
TFC has already played three games this season and has lost all three. On the surface, three losses may look like a grim start. However, looking a little closer at some stats indicate that this could not be farther from the truth as the pitching staff dominated. At worst, TFC lost 3-7 in the second game of a three-game series against the powerful Southern Wesleyan University team. The other two games resulted in losses that were 0-2 and 0-1. The latter of the two lasted an amazing 14 innings! Even more amazing in that game, Dylan Powers threw 10 innings only giving up 4 hits! Dylan Powers is also slated to get the start in the first game against Johnson University.
Screaming Eagle Fans! Get pumped up for this home game!
