Wingate Head Coach Jeff Gregory is very familiar with Turks baseball after spending his 2005 summer as Assistant Coach  and he has honored that relationship by sending quality baseball players to Harrisonburg over the years.  We welcome three Wingate Bulldogs to the 2020 roster. 2019 outfielder, Jed Bryant returns for his second season and he brings LHP Riley Edwards and catcher Logan McNeely with him.
