Sumter Today: Sumter’s P-15’s celebrate their 1991 title team


The only action that took place at Riley Park on Friday was the celebration of the 1991 Sumter P-15’s American Legion baseball state championship team.
The current edition of the P-15s didn’t get to close our their regular season as their finale against Manning-Santee Post 68 was canceled because of weather.
Sumter began pursuit of a state championship to match the '91 team yesterday against Orangeburg Post 4.
Friday’s celebration, which still took place, started with current Head Coach Wallie Jones, who won the first of his nine state championships in 91 as well as the first of four in a row, introducing the 14 players who were able to attend as well as two of his three assistant coaches.
