Fun times at 15th annual Drifter baseball camp

The 15th annual Drifter Baseball Camp was a huge success at Monroe Park last week, with 75 campers enjoying the grand ole game. It was a smash hit as the youngsters’ enthusiasm rang out each day with a full week of fun on the fields.
Up and coming Drifter ball players were treated to a week of fun, games, trophies, camp T-shirts, evaluation cards, daily contests and solid fundamentals of America’s pastime. Five different fields were used at spacious Monroe Park to keep four Tee Ball/Minor League teams and six Little League/Senior League teams rolling each day. Campers rotated through 12 stations daily during the week. Drifter varsity and junior varsity baseball and softball players helped coach – relaying valuable tips to campers on hitting, pitching, base running and defensive and offensive skills.

Varsity baseball head coach and camp director, Steve Swope, was assisted by varsity baseball assistant coaches Jonathan Parker and Earl Payton, as well as long time Little League coach Jimmy Moran. Current Drifter varsity baseball and softball players rounded out the staff.
Swope complimented all personnel, stating, “Our staff did a fantastic job all week, coaching, mingling and having fun with this great bunch of campers. Current and past players continue to give back to the program by sharing their talent, time and love of the game.”
Coach Swope also thanks Quality Electric, Century Team 21-Colonial Beach, Union Bank and Trust Company, Dockside Restaurant, Creative Woodwork, Imagine One, Ltd., Ledo Pizza, EXIT Realty, The Happy Clam Restaurant, Team 4 U Realty, Colonial Yacht Center and True Value Hardware for sponsoring camp and purchasing camp t-shirts and trophies. Also, special thanks go to Susie Foster, Judy Long, Barbara Moxley, Lee Colley, Ronnie Peyton and Virginia Wardman and staff for snack bar accommodations, clerical and registration support, and field preparations.
