West Forsyth head baseball coach Mike Pruitt knows that his team is just three games into its Region 5-7A schedule and that the Wolverines’ fate is far from sealed. But there were many signs that Friday night’s 4-3 win over Forsyth Central was an especially critical one. When West junior Bryar Hawkins cranked a low and inside pitch from Mitchell Gross over the left field fence in the first inning, Hawkins extended his right hand, took a few seconds to watch the ball soar over the fence and tossed his bat aside.
