NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C.- Chris Singleton’s outfield assist gave the North Charleston Dixie Majors their second straight world series title defeating Arkansas 3-2, but Singleton made the play with a little assistance from his guardian angel, Sharona Coleman-Singleton.

Singleton’s mother was one of the nine victims killed in the Emanuel AME Tragedy last month. Baseball has served as a welcome distraction for the rising sophomore outfielder at Charleston Southern.

“Honestly, I was just pumped out of my mind,” Chris recalled after recording the series-clinching out. “I was glad we got another world series title.”

North Charleston led 3-0 entering the final inning, only to give up two runs to Arkansas. After a base hit sent the potential game-tying run towards home plate, Singleton made the play of hte tournament.

“I saw Chris charge up and he made one heck of a throw,” said North Charleston pitcher/outfielder, Eddie Hiott, “As soon as it came out of his hand, we pretty much knew we have them.”

“It was a fitting ending to a great season and you know, especially, you couldn’t have scripted it any better for him,” said the majors head coach, Kenny Wilkinson.

The North Charleston Pre-Majors beat Louisiana 13-1 to capture a championship of their own.
