Bleckley baseball player overcomes obstacles to continue career.

Before Chandler Abney signed his letter of intent to play for Gordon State College baseball Thursday afternoon, BCHS head baseball coach Brad Davis shared a story of how Abney dove out of bounds for a loose ball during a pickup basketball game in sixth grade. Davis said it was an example of Abney’s heart. That same heart helped Abney earn the opportunity as he had Tommy John Surgery last year and missed games this season due to scar tissue. Despite those setbacks, Abney had a 1.000 fielding percentage this season. He’s a career .300 hitter who also had 18 RBI and scored 28 runs this season.
