picked a great time for his first career home run.
The Wilson Central (Lebanon, Tenn.)
junior lefty ripped a ball over the right field fence in Wednesday's matchup with rival Mt. Julien.
Spradley's father, Greg, had been filming the game. As his son's shot cleared the fence, Greg erupted with excitement.
"Oh my God!" he yelled with a mixture of Tennessee twang and fatherly pride, as the younger Spradley rounded the bases. "Ben Spradley just hit one out of the park!"
The elder Spradley told MaxPreps that he was just happy for his son.
"His mother and I are just so proud of how hard he works, and really excited to see him perform well in an important game against Wilson Central's biggest rival," Greg Spradley said.
The victory for Wilson Central came at a great time, as the team had lost to Mt. Julien the night before. It will take part in the district tournament next week.
Wilson Central takes on Stewart's County on Thursday night. Hopefully Greg Spradley will have his camera rolling.
