It may have been affected by weather and everyone might have looked rusty, but the crack of a bat and the pop of a glove were sounds you finally got to hear in Dickson County last week.
Dickson County got everyone started Monday night when both baseball and softball were in action.
A win over CPA for baseball 8-7 and a loss to Columbia Academy 3-0 for Softball.
Tuesday evening everyone but Creek Wood baseball got out on the diamond.
Dickson County Baseball split a doubleheader defeating Father Ryan 8-2 but losing to BGA 11-6 while the softball team grabbed an 11AAA win at Centennial 11-3.
Creek Wood softball was maybe the highlight of the week Tuesday night, however, when Raigan Allbert threw a perfect game and the bats were alive and popping for the Lady Red Hawks in a 16-0 win over East Hickman.
Thursday night was supposed to be Creek Wood Baseball’s debut but that was postponed to Friday due to weather as were both softball teams at the Mary Vowell Classic.
So that meant Thursday was an exclusive night for Dickson County Baseball, because as we all know Coach Rodney O Parker will play anyone, anywhere, anytime, in any conditions, and he did just that when everyone else canceled Thursday.
Dickson County would host Knoxville West at 3:30 and come out victorious 11-2 before traveling back to CPA and dropping that game 11-1.
Friday we believed everyone would be in action, but once again mother nature had other plans as Creek Wood baseball had to postpone again and play a doubleheader Saturday, while both Softball teams would have to play 3 games apiece Saturday.
Once again though, Dickson County baseball and coach Parker would find a way to play.
They travelled to Mt. Juliet and could not come out victorious, losing 15-1.
Then came Saturday, the first day of Spring and it lived up to the hype.
A beautiful day, sunny and 65, every team played multiple games. They went as follows.
Dickson County baseball went 1-1 on the day defeating Green Hill 6-2 but losing to Father Ryan 6-1.
Dickson County Softball went 1-2 defeating Central Magnet 8-0 but dropping games to Fairview 4-2 and Gallatin 4-3.
Creek Wood Softball went 0-3 dropping all of their games at the Mary Vowell Classic to Smyrna 8-4, Green Hill 2-1, and Summit 3-1.
Finally, in their debut a week later than they planned, Creek Wood baseball faced off with the Indians of Montgomery Central in a doubleheader at noon.
They dropped both games on the day.
Game 1 they fell 11-6 and game 2 was a 8-7 final in favor of Central.
