It’s spring break for the local school system this week, great for relief from brain strain and getting outdoors in our milder temperatures.The Warren County High School baseball team only got a seventh-inning stretch however, as the Pioneers kept playing games this week sweeping Stone Memorial by run rule in two consecutive days. While they weren’t on the field playing, members of the Pioneer baseball team and coaches were holding a baseball camp at Patrick Ramsey Field for prospective and current players from 7 years of age until eighth grade from 9 a.m. to 12 noon Monday thru Wednesday.“We had a good turnout with 35 students,” said Adam Childs, head baseball coach for the Warren County Pioneers. “It’s a really fun experience as the kids get out to see what goes on inside the program and get involved so it’s not so unfamiliar to them later.”From the proper way to hold a bat to bunt, hitting practice, to the subtleties of how the other team might have a “tell” before they’re going to try for a pickoff, the coaching staff and high school players were training their replacements.“It’s a lot of fun,” said Ethan Smith, current WCHS Pioneer player assisting in the day’s activities with other players like Isaac Golden and Lucas Rogers.
