It’s not often you see an inside-the-park home run in a state championship series, but Brooks Baldwin pulled it off in the fifth inning of Game 2 against Ledford. Whiteville went on to score four runs in the inning.

This is the sequence of Baldwin’s slide, taken by photographer Selena Gore.

Whiteville went on to win 8-3.
