Coastal Hurricanes Baseball Blowing into the Playoffs for the 1st Time
This year will be a first for the Coastal Home School Hurricanes baseball program, according to head coach Jason Rockwell. “We have never played in a postseason game before,” said Rockwell. This year it becomes a reality as the Hurricanes will travel to Charleston, South Carolina to play in the 2017 South Carolina Home School Tournament.
Four teams are in the tournament, Charleston, Columbia, Coastal and the Upstate Eagles from Spartanburg. Next year, Augusta should join this event as well. Rockwell said, “This should be a good time for the guys with something to play for at the end of the season for the first time in the programs history.” The Coastal Hurricanes baseball program has been running the bases for 7 years. The program has an 90-54 record which is a .625 winning percentage to date. The Hurricanes are coached by Head Coach Jason Rockwell and Assistant Coaches Richard Collins and Ryan Guthrie.
Something else to speak about is the Coastal Home School baseball program has had players advance on to the college level. So far there have been four players who have put a Hurricanes uniform on who are participating at the next level right now. They are, Daniel Collins is a pitcher at Montreat College; Scheldon Paulk is a pitcher at Chattanooga State College; Daniel Mills is a catcher at Univerity of South Carolina at Beaufort, and Caleb Hill pitches at Savannah State.
The Hurricanes will blow into Charleston, South Carolina this weekend with nothing to lose but to make history. Hopefully the Hurricanes turn back form the Palmetto City and blow the championship trophy back to the Host City of the South, Savannah Georgia.
