Junior Josh Magaw belted a three-run homer over the centerfield fence to give the Tigers a 3-2 lead in the third inning, but Savannah Christian stormed back with 11 runs to spoil the Tigers’ 2007 home opener.
An estimated 300 fans watched the Tigers open the season.
Bradwell hosts Glynn Academy at 5 p.m. Wednesday.
Despite the loss, Bradwell athletic director Jim Walsh Jr. is optimistic about this season’s baseball team
“The front end of the schedule is pretty competitive,” Walsh said. “They’re playing Wayne, which is a state playoff team, and Savannah Christian, who is a state playoff team, and they’re giving themselves a chance.”
“They’re playing pretty good baseball. They definitely are playing a lot better than how we finished last year,” Walsh said. “I think by the time we get to region play, we will be pretty competitive in our region.”
Region 3-AAAAA play starts March 14 against Camden County. Eight teams compose the region.
