Garrison Thomas Boston, 22, and Lee Harris Battle, 20, both of Cartersville, were charged by Bartow-Cartersville Drug Task Force agents on July 25.
DTF Commander Capt. Mark Mayton said Tuesday that the two were arrested as part of a roughly three-month investigation that resulted in the arrests of 15 to 20 people.
Those arrested were involved in the sale of marijuana and ecstasy, or “molly,” a purer form of MDMA, Mayton said.
Boston was charged with distribution of marijuana within 1,000 feet of a park, sale of marijuana and distribution of marijuana within 1,000 feet of a school. Battle was charged with sale of marijuana.
Boston was a second baseman for the Purple Hurricanes, winning two state titles with the team. He was also a member of the Senior League World Series champions. Boston went on to play one year at Northwest Florida State College, but was not listed with the college for a second year.
Battle also played with the Canes, contributing as a pitcher.
Details on the operation were not available Tuesday. Mayton said more information will be forthcoming as the investigation is ongoing.
