Salem High rising senior Trent Judd will be in Lynchburg this week to play in the Virginia Commonwealth Games baseball tournament at Liberty University.
Judd will be playing for the West team, coached by Rodney Spradlin. Neil Zimmerman, Randy Boone and Ryan Gilliland will be assisting Spradlin in the four-team tournament, divided geographically in the state of Virginia.
The West team will practice Thursday at 6 pm. On Friday at 11 am there will be a workout for scouts, and the first game for the West team will be at 6 pm Friday evening. The West will play noon and 4:30 pm games Saturday as the team plays each of the other three one time each in a round robin format. Sunday’s games will depend on the results of the Friday and Saturday games, as first, second and third place is determined.
Other Roanoke Valley players on the team include twins Owen and Nathan Prince of Lord Botetourt and Bennett Shealor of Blacksburg among the 16 player roster.
