Coach Pitch All-Stars win travel ball tournament
The Barnwell 7/8 All-Star Coach Pitch team went 4-0 to win an 8u travel ball tournament last weekend. “They were put at a disadvantage by us coaches by only letting them use USA rec ball bats while the other teams were using USSSA travel ball bats. We did this so we could see what kind of team we had and how well they could play because next weekend is our district tournament for rec ball,” said Chris Yancey, one of the coaches. “Super proud of every one of them. They had ups and downs and kept fighting.”
