Picayune’s Jared Bales has been named a Dandy Dozen for this baseball season by the Jackson Clarion-Ledger.

Bales and the Maroon Tide open their season today at the Hancock Tournament.

Bales, a catcher and a pitcher, has already signed with the University of Southern Mississippi.

He is the second straight Dandy Dozen player for head coach Cayne Stockstill’s Maroon Tide after T.J. House last season.
