For Charleston Southern’s Chris Singleton, baseball field a refuge (from the Post and Courier)

As Chris Singleton takes his position in the outfield at CSU Ballpark, over his shoulder looms the familiar Emanuel AME tribute — nine doves emerging from a palmetto tree.

One dove represents his mother, Sharonda Coleman- Singleton, one of the nine killed at Emanuel AME Church in Charleston last June.

Chris sees the sign, which graces the fence in right-center field, every time he runs on to the field to play baseball for Charleston Southern.
