Parsons earn ACCC Baseball Championship Tournament berth

BOAZ, Ala. – After a series sweep of Bevill State to end the regular season, Snead State Community College’s Baseball team has secured a spot in the ACCC Championship Tournament in Oxford.

The Parsons (30-23, 17-15) have won 12 out of their last 14 games. They’re set to take on Lurleen B. Wallace in a single-elimination, play-in game at Chocolocco Park on Wednesday, May 10, at 4 p.m. During the regular season, the Parsons won two out of three against LBW.

“I’m really proud of our guys in how they’ve progressed over this season,” said Parsons head coach Casey Underwood. “After a shaky start to the season, I’m pleased with how they’ve been able to put it all together here at the end with the tournament on deck.

“But, Wednesday a new season begins for us. While we’re thrilled about the growth we’ve seen over the course of the season, we need to kind of put that behind us now and reset our focus on one game, one play at a time if we hope to have success in this tournament.”

Last year, Snead State won the ACCC Championship Tournament. Entering the postseason, they were among the top seeds and one of the favorites to win it all.

This postseason is a different story. The Parsons enter this tournament as the North’s No. 4 Seed, flying under the radar to defend the title.

“Our goal was to get back here, and now that we are, anything could happen,” Underwood said. “But one thing that’s certain is that our guys are going to play hard, leave it all out on the field, and have a lot of fun while we’re doing it.”

Snead State can enter the tournament with a bit of confidence knowing they have arguably one of the best players in the country in sophomore right fielder Carter Frederick. Frederick leads the ACCC and all of NJCAA Division I Baseball with the highest batting average (.493). He’s tied for first in most homeruns (13) with teammate Trey Higgins.

As a team, the Parsons posted a .321 batting average and 59 homeruns over the regular season. They’ve driven in a total of 398 runs over 53 games.

The tournament is set to begin May 10 and will continue through May 15. Tournament seeds are as follows:
