Boone Bigfoots stampede through Disco Turkeys, 14-1

By David Rogers. BOONE, N.C. — Scoring early and late, the Boone Bigfoots tallied 14 runs on just eight hits May 30, rushing by the Carolina Disco Turkeys in run-rule fashion, 14-1.

It was not the intended home opener for the Boone nine but rain canceled the scheduled Coastal Plain League home openers on May 27 and 28, so good weather for a non-league game — and an even better result — made for a happy beginning to the High Country’s summer baseball season and the estimated 150 fans braving the relatively brisk temperatures.

The weather may have been cool but not the Bigfoots’ bats or baserunning, using “small ball” to take advantage of Disco Turkeys control problems on the mound and assorted fielding errors. Holding the visitors to just one run scored in the top of the 4th inning, the Bigfoots left the bases loaded in the top of the first but made up for it in the second frame with three runs. Then they scored four runs in the bottom of the 6th inning and exploded for seven more in the bottom half of the 7th to win the day.

Game stats were not available at press time, but here are a few captured moments. All photographic images by David Rogers, High Country Sports.
