His night started with a strikeout on three pitches.
And while the next at-bat didn’t come until the seventh inning, T.R. Robertson made the most of his night in the Alabama All-Star Sports Week baseball game, collecting a hit in his final two at-bats while playing error-free ball at four positions in the field to collect most valuable player honors for the South squad on Tuesday night at Riverwalk Stadium.

T.R. Robertson should be prepared for whatever happens in the Alabama All-Star Sports Week baseball games that will be held Tuesday evening at Riverwalk Stadium.
Whether he’s asked to play outfield, infield or pitch, he’s done it before. In fact, in 2015, the Saint James junior played every position on the diamond except first base.
