Chase Sandberg might have stayed in the background during Manatee’s football season, but on the baseball diamond he is in the spotlight.
In last week’s Sarasota Baseball Classic, the junior second baseman went 10 for 15 with seven ribbies and scored three times while leading the Hurricanes with four doubles.
Another second baseman, Palmetto High’s Nick Nolting, had a big tournament. He went 9 for 15 in the tournament with four doubles and scored a team high five runs.
Tigers shortstop Grandon Goetzman also gave Palmetto some punch at the plate going 7 for 13 in Palmetto’s four games with three triples, three doubles and four RBIs.
