Placeholder Image
Anyone who has seen seventh-ranked Gainesville’s baseball program this season knows it’s an offense loaded with power in the middle of the order. First baseman Caleb Whitenton, a senior, leads the Red Elephants (22-5) with 15 homers, while junior left-handed pitcher/designated hitter Jonathan Gettys has put 12 over the fence. In the Red Elephants’ first round series against Cambridge, it was more than just two players who made a two-game sweep possible.
