On Memorial Day morning, the Harmony Eagles went back to work preparing for the regional finals, and for this small community, practice often feels like a family reunion.

“We have a lot of kids who, their dads played here or their uncles or family members,” said head coach Robbie McNeel. “There’s a lot of alumni and it’s really special for the kids.”

Coach McNeel’s son, Drew, plays shortstop and has been dreaming of being part of a special run like this.

“It means the world to me, I’ve grown up here,” said Drew. “And all the alumni that’s put so much work into this, and to be able to play with these guys, it’s just amazing.”

On a wall behind the home dugout, there is a sign, honoring the 2003 team which made it the state tournament.

Senior, Easton Blackstone, was the team’s bat boy.

“It just kind of reminds me of the tradition we have here, and all the players that have come before us and how hard they worked to get there,” said Blackstone. “Just trying to follow in their footsteps.”

He’s also following in the footsteps of his dad, Jeff Blackstone, who was the Eagles’ head coach in 2003.

But in 2015, he was killed in a car accident, when Easton was a freshman.

“Without my dad here, and really pushing me, I’ve got coach McNeel out here, and he pushes me every day,” said Blackstone.

So it all came down to this, Game Three at Mike Carter Field, between TJC and Brookhaven, for a guaranteed spot in the Division Three NJCAA World Series.

The Apaches were looking to punch their 7th straight ticket to the national tournament but trailed 2-0 going into the bottom of the 8th inning, where the Bears knocked a two-run homer over the left field wall.

With runners at the corners, former White Oak Roughneck, Heath Hood, hit the ball to shortstop, and Brookhaven was able to make the force out at 2nd, and win the game 4-0.

Tyler has had to battle through injuries all season long, but head coach Doug Wren hopes the NJCAA committee will take into the account the program’s history, as well as the fact they were able to win 411 games.
