Louisville Slugger has become synonymous with baseball. With a brand name closer to home, former Christ School standout Ali Knowles '09 is looking to make some inroads as well. "Caribbean Sluggers" launched in February 2018 with Knowles filling orders for custom-made bats out of his garage. Looking to the future, he has aspirations to not only increase production, but expand into gloves, and then be able to provide all the equipment to players he represents as an agent.
On Saturday, the #5 Christ School baseball team traveled to #4 Charlotte Country Day to compete in the 3A NCISAA State Quarterfinals.
In their first playoff game, with Chad Treadway '19 on the mound, the Greenies felt comfortable they would get the job done.
After finishing 20-2 in the regular season, Varsity Baseball earned the #5 seed in the 3A NCISAA State Playoffs.
A day after a tight affair against Charlotte Country Day, Greenies baseball hosted a scrappy Asheville Christian Academy team on Wednesday.
On Tuesday, March 27, the Greenies, who were ranked #1 in the NCISAA by MaxPreps, hosted Charlotte Country Day School.
