Two men solving an investigation

The High Springs Police Department is looking for information in connection with a back yard assault Sunday night in southeast High Springs. 

Police say an unknown assailant entered the back yard at a private home where a group of people were gathered. The person attacked a 58-year-old male with a baseball bat and then fled. 

The victim, whom police did not identify, was taken to a local hospital with serious injuries. 

The High Springs Police Department is calling for public help identifying the assailant. Anyone with information can contact Sergeant Tracy Taylor at or by calling 352-955-1818.

How about you change headline to include baseball, as in baseball bat.


Lemme get this straight. You read THAT headline and were expecting to read an article about bats attacking a man in his backyard? ...After learning that no bats were responsible for the attack, and instead a crazed man with a baseball bat “sheat the bit” out of a helpless man at a cook-out, the only rational thing you could do was complain about the headline of an article written in a free newspaper. You must be on the City of Gainesville’s Board of Commissioners.
