Coaches forging players into Cavalier Diamond Boys

Posted on Wednesday, March 15, 2017 at 11:03 am

The Caroline High School varsity baseball team preps for its first game of the season against Eastern View on Thursday, March 16.

The news is full of spring training stories about everyone’s favorite Major League Baseball teams, but baseball training is not restricted to only the Grapefruit League––it has arrived at Caroline High School, along with all the other spring sports offered.

Going by the stadium, just outside of the Town of Bowling Green, one can see the Cavalier Diamond Boys hard at work, with the CHS varsity and junior varsity teams practicing together under the watchful eye of Caroline head coach Frank Dow and his staff.

In addition to returning assistant coach Zachary Foltz, Dow has garnered the help of Caroline High School alum Tyler Daig, who graduated from the University of Mary Washington in 2016.

Daig pitched for UMW for four years and brings a lot of mound experience to the pitching staff.

Joining Daig in coaching the JV team is his former UMW teammate Andrew Slupek, who was on the pitching staff at UMW.

Dow, who has always brought a cerebral perspective to the game, described the team as young, but boasts a lot of potential. The four seniors are matched with four freshmen and two sophomores, all of who are expected to make strong contributions to the team.
