In a home region match-up between Cartersville and Gilmer County, Coach Chester received quite the surprise. The first Baseball State Championship team, the 2001 team, returned to Richard Bell Field to honor the 15 years it has been since their historic win.

This was a very emotional time for Coach Chester and the entire Purple Hurricane family. Coach Tucker told the team, “Many of these guys haven’t seen one pitch of Cartersville Baseball since they won in 2001.” From that point on the team knew how much this meant to everyone who was there and it was very special to be a part of.

Many of the players were able to attend and as well as their radio announcer from back in the day. It was a very special experience for everyone.
