Hadyn Bailey, a three-year starter in baseball at Soddy-Daisy, has signed scholarship papers with Cleveland State.
“He has done a tremendous job for us,” Trojans coach Jared Hensley said. “Every time he steps on the field he does so with the idea of competing. He will challenge [opponents] regardless of who he’s facing.”
Bailey has a 6-1 pitching record this year and a 14-2 career record for Soddy-Daisy.

Winning pitcher Corey Kafka threw a three-hitter in the four-inning game and had seven strikeouts. Ringgold improved to 23-4 overall and 20-2 in the region.
