Despite the mid-40′s temperatures and consistent rainfall this past Saturday morning, over 30 players from ages 8-16 were able to receive batting instruction and repetitions at the high school campus on the 18th. Youth players were rotated around the new indoor cages, participating in 14 different hitting drills and stations to improve their overall hitting abilities. Josh Cole, head baseball coach at Tattnall County High, Sherry Richards, head softball coach at Tattnall County High, and Brandon Peterson, head baseball coach at Southeast Bulloch High, headed up a team of the high school baseball and softball players that instructed the youth participants and engaged them in the drills and philosophies that are executed at the high school level.
The camp was a big success despite the conditions outside, which is a tribute to the new facility that has been provided for the community by local businesses, personal donations, and the generous grant from the Baseball Tomorrow Fund. The coaches involved were excited to get to see, for the first time, the youth of the community benefiting from the facility. This is the first of many camps and clinics that will be hosted at the facility for the Tattnall County youth players, as the coaches hope to see the number of participants in the camps grow as time goes on.
“We hope to see a situation where the participation in youth sports increases over time, said Cole. “I think that if we put stock in teaching the young players how to play the game the right way and give them knowledge and power to perform better, it will spark a higher interest and appreciation for the game. The new indoor facility, on its inaugural run, was our savior today. I know that there are a lot of people who are proud to know that. So many people in the community and even outside the community put so much time and effort into this facility. Today, we were really able to see the benefit from having such a place to workout with the young players.”
