  • His batting average (.511) helps Collins breathe easier

    Ironically, Josh Dennison was allergic to grass as a child. 

    “I had exercise-induced asthma,” Dennison, a senior at Collins, recalled recently.

    But he eventually grew out of his allergy and into a heck of a baseball player.

    So far this season Dennison is putting up numbers that are nothing to sneeze at, pardon the pun.

    Through Wednesday night’s 15-3 victory over cross-town rival Shelby County, he was hitting a rather torrid .511 (24 for 47).
