Adam Stone(Southeast Guilford HS) and Jake Ozment(Southern Guilford) did the research and they found a camp out in Arizona where they could go this winter and get a shot at playing professional baseball.
That’s all these guys were looking for was a shot and that is what they got at this tryout camp in Yuma, Arizona. If they make it, you could be hearing from them one day in the major leagues and if they don’t succeed, at least they will know they gave it their best shot, in what may be their final call, in their efforts to play big league ball.
Jake Ozment is a 6’7 pitcher and he has been clocked throwing at 90mph and with the scouts always looking for those tall/lanky pitchers, who knows?????
Adam Stone is a catcher and he was a good one back in his day at SEG and then he lost favor with the sport, before realizing that he might just have one final try, to do something that he has truly loved since back when he was a little kid.
Good luck to the guys and they will be in the camp until February 28 and at that time we will know if they will be on their way to Spring Training or if they will be headed back to the Greensboro Batting Center to turn in their gear….
The GBC is a very good place, but that Spring Training sounds a whole lot better to me…………………
