NCMC Pirates Baseball and Trenton High School Baseball hosted a free camp for local players on Monday. Turnout for the event was excellent with instruction given to the players by both coaching staffs plus guest presenters Mike Arbuckle, Jerry Lafferty and Tyler Hudlow. Players in attendance ranged in grade level from 6th-12th.
The event was spearheaded by Arbuckle and NCMC Head Coach Donnie Hillerman. They hope to help nurture the growing baseball interest from area youth. “It was great to see the turnout and interest level for the camp. The campers were attentive and ready to work and improve. There are several young players who will continue to improve the area high school programs over the next few years,” Arbuckle commented.
Hudlow, a current assistant coach at Truman State University and the manager of the Chillicothe Mudcats, is no stranger to volunteering his time. He worked as the NCMC Pirates volunteer assistant coach from 2015-2021. “I just love coaching baseball and whenever players are eager to learn I am more than happy to help them out.”
