On Saturday, Jan. 4 Rutherford County’s own Randy Ingle teamed up with an array of local baseball minds to put together a six-hour baseball camp at R-S Middle.

Ingle, who has managed the Rome Braves (Single-A affiliate of the Atlanta Braves) since 2006, worked with instructors to improve fundamental and advanced skills of local youth baseball players. Despite the cold temperatures, the camp attracted over 30 local players.

Local instructors joining Ingle included Curtis Snethen (Elite Baseball), Danny Fraga (UNC Pembroke), Tyler Deaton (Catawba Valley), Keith Snethen (Catawba Valley), Zeke Blanton (Gardner-Webb), George Hines (North Carolina A&T) and Roberto Taft (Belmont Abbey).
