Clay County Swarm claims championship

Many boys signed up to play 10U baseball for the Clay County Rec league in March of 2017, however, 14 of them had no idea how much this season would mean to them in the end. Out of three Clay County 10U teams, fourteen boys proved themselves worthy to be called All-Stars. These boys were invited to participate in an extended season of All-Star play which would take them deep into the summer. The team came together under the leadership of coaches Joe Jack Sellers, Shane Boyer, Gage Hughes and Kevin Shaheen. In the beginning the team reminded us a little of the “Bad News Bears,” but through hard work and dedication from coaches and players, the game of baseball became part of their souls.
