Below are the members of those teams who made the Daily Tribune News' All-County Baseball Team for 2010.
Player of the Year
Bo Edwards, outfielder
After suffering an arm injury last summer, Edwards worked his way back into top shape to lead the Tigers -- and all county hitters -- with a .500 batting average. The North Georgia College and State University signee also had seven home runs, second in the county and on the Adairsville team. Edwards, said coach Eric Bishop following his signing last month, was the "heartbeat" of the Tigers offense, often coming up with two-out or two-strike hits. In the opening round of the Class AA tournament, where Adairsville was swept, Edwards hit a three-run home run to bring the Tigers within one run of Buford in Game 1. Edwards, who kept a positive attitude as he rehabbed from injury, has all the tools, Bishop said. The senior had 33 hits -- which included four doubles -- 36 runs, 34 RBIs and 19 walks.
Rookie of the Year
Tyler Gates, pitcher/outfielder
Gates went 5-1 with a 1.93 ERA in 40 innings for the Colonels, who named him the team's pitcher of the year. Against Region 7-AAAA competition, he had 50 strikeouts in 30 innings, with an ERA of 1.53. Gates went undefeated (5-0) inside the region, giving up six earned runs as opponents hit just .187 against him. For the season, he had 64 strikeouts, 21 walks, 11 earned runs and a .224 opponents' batting average. Gates, who was in his first year of varsity competition, hit .400 with six home runs and 32 RBIs in 26 games. He played outfield in addition to pitching.
Adam Clark, pitcher
Clark served as the Purple Hurricanes' ace throughout their season, which ended in the Class AAA quarterfinals at the hands of eventual state champion Columbus. He went 8-3, with a 1.92 ERA. Opponents hit just .168 against Clark, who had a county-high 88 strikeouts and 34 walks in 69 2/3 innings pitched. He was named to the Georgia Dugout Club Top 96 Senior All-Star Team. Clark is headed to Northwest Florida next season to play baseball.
Ben Dittmer, junior
Dittmer had one of the county's lowest ERAs at 1.71. In 57 innings pitched, he struck out 71 batters -- the second-highest total in Bartow -- with 19 walks. Dittmer, who went 7-3 for the Canes, held opponents to a .194 batting average against him.
Cody Beemiller, catcher
Beemiller recorded a county-high eight home runs and 38 RBIs this season. He also led his team in doubles with 10. Beemiller tied for a team-high 33 hits, hit .407 with one triple, scored 28 runs and drew seven walks. With the departure of Edwards, Beemiller will most likely move into the spotlight as the Tigers' clutch hitter next season.
Dalton Weightman, first baseman
Weightman set the Colonels' school record for most hits in a season (44) and highest batting average in a season (.494). The junior infielder had 26 RBIs, seven doubles and one home run while boasting a .942 fielding percentage. Weightman was named the offensive player of the year for Cass.
Taylor Greene, senior
Cartersville second baseman
Greene hit .394 with two home runs and 27 RBIs. He scored 34 runs in 33 games and led the Canes with 11 doubles. He was always on base -- evidenced by his high run total -- and was a great defensive player at second. A spark plug at the top of the lineup, Greene could also hit for power.
Dalton Parham, sophomore
Cass third baseman
Parham totaled 31 hits in 81 at-bats (.383) and drove in 33 runs. He also added five doubles and two home runs. Parham followed up last year's all-county rookie-of-the-year campaign with a great sophomore showing.
Colton Montgomery, senior
The Canes' leading home run hitter, Montgomery batted .303 with seven home runs, 31 RBIs and a .625 slugging percentage. He proved just how dangerous he could be when locked in, hitting three home runs in an April game at LaFayette. Montgomery, who played all three outfield positions, had five hits in Cartersville's second-round series with Eastside of Covington. Montgomery has signed a scholarship to play baseball at Georgia College and State University in Milledgeville. He also was named to the Georgia Dugout Club Top 96 Senior All-Star Team.
Jacob Moore, junior
Moore led the Wildcats in many offensive categories, including RBIs (21), home runs (six), walks (17), slugging percentage (.776) and on-base percentage (.511). He hit .358 for the season. Hard as it may be to believe, Moore may have been better as a pitcher, where he was selected to the Georgia Dugout Club Top 96 Senior All-Star Team as a junior. He had a 5-4 record and a 2.35 ERA, with 60 strikeouts and 23 walks in 44 2/3 innings. Moore also was selected as an all-region pitcher in Region 7-AAAA as a junior and sophomore, when he was named to the all-county season as well.
Laine Frazier, senior
Cartersville first baseman
Frazier really got hot at the end of the season. He had a great series against Eastside, where he hit .600 in three games. A great defensive player at first, Frazier showed discipline at the plate. He hit .387 this season and had two home runs, 29 RBIs, 29 runs and 27 walks. Frazier will attend and play baseball at The Citadel, a South Carolina military school.
