Hot Gnats bats defeat Hickory, 11-2


On a warm Sunday afternoon at Grayson stadium, the Sand Gnats bats exploded for 11 runs on 14 hits, scoring 4 runs in the first inning and 7 runs in the third. The hitting star was Flores, going 4for 4 with three singles and a double raising his BA to .287. Gnat pitchers(Allen, Goldberg, Church, and Orta) limited the Hickory Crawdads to two runs on four hits. The previous day the "Crawdads" could only muster two hits for the game.
Sunday was 2009 Sand Gnats baseball cards giveaway to the first 1,000 fans. The glossy pictures on the cards look great thanks to photographer, Fred Devyatkin. The players autographed baseballs and their baseball cards before and after the game.

Save that card Wally... you'll be able to sell that on EBAY 10 years from nowfor big bucks.

Mack, I think you are right. Probably should take the card to the bank and put it in the vault. Flores could become a superstar in the future.
