April 26 – Captain Morgan in the house.
This is Hatteras Brooks, aka ‘Captn. Morgan’. This picture was taken on May 14, 2016 as Hatteras tried to get some relief from the hot sun and humidity in Martinsville, Virginia. It was game 2 for the ECU Club pirates in the NCBA (National Club Baseball Association) Mid-Atlantic South regional playoffs. Winner of the regional punch their ticket to the NCBA World Series. Captn. Morgan was on the bump and would I believe, eventually get the win.
Hatteras began his transformation about midseason. I thought that it was good look. However, when I saw Hatteras at the start of the 2017 season he looked liked anyone but Captain Morgan. The mustache was gone and the locks were shorn. The new haircut would have made gunny R. Lee Ermey proud.
When I asked Hatteras why the new look, he said something like “that didn’t work out so well for us last season.” The ECU Club pirates had lost the Championship game at the NCBA DIWS. Hatteras would do anything including a haircut for the team to get back to the WS and win it all.
