Hood stays positive even when he's not in the game plan

ROBINSON – Clinton Hood didn’t fit into the offensive game plan for Post 95 during the Sr. Legion District Tournament.

So, he trotted out to the first-base coaching box most innings to help guide his teammates once they reached base.

He didn’t fit into the starting pitching plans, either.

So, he waited patiently until called upon as a reliever in the championship game, tossing three innings of one-hit baseball.
