Lord Botetourt twins Nathan and Owen Prince will be in Lynchburg this week to play in the Virginia Commonwealth Games baseball tournament at Liberty University.
Nathan and Owen, both rising seniors, 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 p.m. On Friday at 11 a.m., there will be a workout for scouts, and the first game for the West team will be at 6 p.m. Friday. The West will play noon and 4:30 p.m. 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 Trent Judd of Salem and Bennett Shealor of Blacksburg among the 16-player roster.
