13U Red Wins First Event
Bodyshop 13U White was exciting to watch as they blew through their first event unbeaten. This group has great young talent. Dominate performances from Chase Griffin, Zach Miller, and Johnah McCary propelled Bodsyhop to victory in each game. The nature and savey in which this group plays the game far exceeds their age class. With these young men as rising starts in the organization the future is very bright. Congrats to our 13U red group, keep working.
16U Attracting Big Attention
Bodyshop 16U has began to get a lot of big attention. Ricky Williams and Ryan Ouzts have started the charge drawing schools from all over the state. Ouzts has swung the bat with authority all summer but just recently has had a velo jump up to 87. Ricky Williams has continued to dominate all summer with a below 1.00 ERA and sitting 83-84. Ricky's tall slender frame and clean arm action makes him project-able at every level. The dynamic Lebron brothers have really caught some steam here late attracting numerous Big South Attention. Noah's twitch and hands at the plate from the left side and reliable glove makes him a good find at any level. Jj's arm action from Center, ability to track balls, and forward movement at the plate makes him a very project-able and exciting player in the 2020 class. Numerous others have began to gain attention late in the year as well. Corley Cheeks swing has begun to come around to match is great hands in the field. While Simms Owens and Tucker Chapman have been grabbing the attention of every school in the stands with the effort and fire that they play the game with. The future is bright for this group.

Sheaffer Family Needs your Help and Support
This past Saturday at 8am the Sheaffer Family received a call that told them their house was burnt to the ground. The family had left for a softball tournament at 6am that morning with the entire family. Between 6am and 8am that morning the house caught fire and everything the family possessed was burnt to the ground. Both their sons are part of the Bodyshop Baseball Family: Matt plays first-base on the 13U Grey team. Caleb was a crucial member of the Bodsyhop 9U this past fall. Please join us in coming around the Sheaffer family to help them in their time of need. Below is a link in which to donate to the Sheaffer Fund. This will allow them to get their feet back on the ground during this difficult time. Anything you can contribute will be appreciated. What we give will not bring back all the precious family items and memories that have been lost. However, hopefully it will help ease their mind and give the immediate hope into the future.

The Brett Williams Story (never forget #22)
Brett Williams was everything you want in a young man and a baseball player. It was my honor and pleasure to be able to coach him and have him as part of our program. Brett was one of the best players I have every coached. Not just because of his physcial ability his leadership, his will to compete, or his mental approach to the game. Brett was the best because he understood that his ability to play the game was a gift. he understood that it was not about him but about something much bigger than himself. He wanted to used the game to reach people, to have influence, and to be a great man. Brett's dream was to use his gift in baseball to change lives. On December of 2016 Brett fulfilled his dream of committing to play baseball at the University of South Carolina. His dreams of playing at the division 1 level were coming true. However, God had much bigger plans for Brett. On January 17th 2016 Brett Passed away from the flu. His impact on the community and our program will live on forever. His life impacted thousands, God used Brett Williams in a mighty way in our community. Some people are just made for greatness.
