Beaufort High School second baseman Mark Jones and his Eagles teammates will wait and see what today's games mean for their final Region 8-AAAA seeding.
But they could already deem the 2012 regular season a success. The Eagles are 15-7 as they prepare for Colleton County today, West Ashley on Monday and then the start of the Class 4-A playoffs. If Summerville defeats Ashley Ridge today and the Eagles defeat the Cougars, there is a three-way tie for first in the region. If Ashley Ridge wins, the Eagles earn the region's No. 2 seed with a victory over Colleton County.
Jones is batting more than .400 this season while also pitching in relief and playing some outfield. The Beaufort Gazette/Island Packet caught up with Jones after practice this week to run him through the 2-Minute Drill.
