2017 Team Record/ Info. – (21-7) overall & (11-1) in Region 4-2A

2018 Team Outlook – The 2018 Cheraw Braves Baseball Team will return 8 starters to a squad that finished with an overall record of 21-7. The Braves will open the season with some experience, but with a mixture of some younger potential starters that will look to build off last year’s success where the team won a Region Championship and District Championship Runner-up. As it is every year, we hope to improve as the season progresses, and give our team a chance to get some valuable experience as we compete for a region championship and positioning for a playoff run. The Coastal Invitational is a first class tournament that we will use to gain this experience to hopefully reach our team goals throughout the year.
