Jason Kelly/ESPNHSDalton Kelly had an outstanding prep career in the CIF Northern Section.Clutch double gives Foothill of Palo Cedro a section title and lets Dalton Kelly end career with 51-game streak of getting on base.
It wasn’t the first time in the last 51 games that Dalton Kelly’s streak of reaching base at least once came down to a last plate appearance, only this time it was literally the final at-bat for him in a Foothill of Palo Cedro baseball uniform.
With the score tied 5-5 in the bottom of the eighth inning of last week’s CIF Northern Section Division I title game against a Pleasant Valley of Chico team that had dealt Foothill its only two losses of a 29-2 season, the senior came through big time.
