In an effort to increase interest in the baseball and softball programs at Grayson County High School, first-year baseball head coach, Gavin Logsdon, held a Cougar Baseball Camp at Don Lee Field last week.

Taking advantage of the unusually fine weather, Logsdon and a large group of assistants welcomed nearly 90 participants to the camp, which featured campers, both boys and girls, from Kindergarten through middle school. The camp began on Wednesday and was completed on Friday.

Seeking to create more interest in the spring sports, the camp was designed to teach the fundamentals of the game: hitting, fielding, throwing and running. Each camper moved through several stages where different coaches broke down the various aspects of baseball.

With such a large group on hand in this first camp, the future of the Cougar programs seems bright.
