Logan invites softball players to camp
VIDALIA — Nook Logan’s NL7 Elite: “Catch, Throw, Hit and Run” clinic will hit the Miss-Lou for a second time this summer, except this time the camp will take place across the river and offer softball lessons.
Joining Logan from Aug. 8 through 10 will be former Southern Miss Golden Eagle pitcher, first baseman and outfielder Taylor Brown at the Concordia Parish District 3 Recreation Complex. Logan will instruct baseball lessons to boys ages 5 through 12 from 9 a.m. through noon and ages 13 through 19 from 2 to 5 p.m., while Brown handles the softball sessions for the same age groups at the same time on a separate field.
Because Brown will be making the trip from Houston, Logan asks that those interested preregister today.
“Taylor needs to know how many people to bring with her, so we’d like to give her a good estimate before she comes,” Logan said.
Logan, whose baseball camp took place in Natchez in the middle of July, said his first camp was a huge success. Because of the positive feedback he received from parents, Logan said he planned on bringing a separate camp to Vidalia all along when Brown was available to make the trip and assist with the girls.
“I expect some of the kids to be back from the first one,” Logan said. “We expect a bigger turnout, because we won’t have to compete with all of these all-star tournaments like we did in July.”
Those interested in attending the camp may pay $140 for all three days, $100 for two days or a $65 fee for one day. See Chip Sturdivant at Sports Center or Mike Bowlin at Hometown Sports for registration. Call 601-807-6570 with any questions.
