Baseball camp has slate of solid instructors

The Eighth Annual Demopolis High School Baseball Winter Camp, slated for Jan. 31, will give youngsters a

chance to have big league dreams to play with big league players.

Coach James Moody is pleased to have the following coaches/players staffing this camp:

* Barry Dean- Wallace/Selma Community College Head Coach

* Jason Smith- Detroit Tigers Infielder and Former DHS player (’95 grad)

* Justin Barnes- Detroit Tigers Catcher and Former DHS player (’99 grad)

* Jack Hazelrig- Greensboro High School Head Coach

* Joe Mason- Scout for the Boston Red Sox

* Cole Basinger- Faulkner State Pitcher and Former DHS player (’01 grad)

This camp is the place for the hardcore ball player to further his skills or for the beginner that really needs help. This camp is built on fundamentals and they will be stressed during this camp.

Moody hopes the weather will be better to them this year. Last year at the camp it rained and really hurt attendance, but we hope for sunshine. We have had over 100 kids before and we would like to get a good mixture of younger and older players.

The Winter Camp is scheduled for Saturday, January 31 from 9 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the DHS Baseball Field. The age ranges from 6-18 and the cost is $30.
