Columbia, SC (WLTX) — It was a fitting conclusion for Hammond’s Jae Roberts. Roberts, who will play baseball at South Carolina, ended his high school career in the same stadium he will begin college ball.
Roberts’ walk-off home run in the eighth inning propelled Hammond to a 7-4 victory and the 3A SCISA baseball title. Roberts was prepared for the big moment.
“I had dreamt of this the night before,” he said. “Try to put it in play, I didn’t expect it to go over the fence.”
