Redskin summer baseball starts

School may be out and each sport officially done with their games for the season in Bryan County, but somebody forgot to tell the Redskin baseball team, who have been very active lately.

Bryan County Redskin athletes from baseball, softball, football, and basketball are each involved in some type of summer league competition with other area schools in order to work on their skills and develop the necessary tools needed for the upcoming season for their particular sport.

Baseball and softball have seen the most action so far in this early summer with both sports providing opportunities for playing time for the veterans and the younger athletes moving up into the program. This is being accomplished through weekly games among other high schools and some tournaments also. Many of the tournament teams are made up of area players from local schools.

The Redskin baseball team is divided into Team One and Team Two, with Team Two being most of the younger players.

Team Two participated in the Georgia games on May 30-June 1 in Savannah and came home with the Bronze medal as they defeated BC 21-1 behind the arm and bat of Tyler Moody. Moody pitched a 1-hitter along with going 3-4 at the plate to help the Redskins bring home the Bronze medal. The Two squad is being coached by Dan Kauffman.

"There are many of our guys who are hitting the ball well on both teams, but Tyler Moody seems to be the hottest so far," varsity coach Al Butler said.

The Redskins will participate in a wooden bat tournament held in Vidalia on June 12-14.
