baseball-brainDP's All-Academic Team: We spend much of our time chasing physical tools, but as we do each year, DP wants to honor student-athletes that take care of business in the classroom too! Thank you in advance to each high school coach and guidance counselor that nominates the student-athletes with a premium GPA, SAT/ACT and class rank from their team. By May 26, please submit nominations to Jason Kullman at: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. 

JrDP-logo14High School Graduating Seniors: Would you like to have some extra cash in your back pocket this summer? Do you consider your baseball background good enough to cover USSSA, AAU, Little League or Dixie Youth games? If so, we could use your help to write up contests and identify the top talent in the 9-14 age groups across South Carolina. What better way to earn some extra spending money than watching America's pastime played by the stars of tomorrow. We have openings in the following areas: Columbia/Lexington, Aiken/North Augusta, Charleston/Summerville, Rock Hill/Fort Mill, Florence/Myrtle Beach and Gaffney/Spartanburg. Anyone interested in being an area scout for Junior Diamond Prospects - and being compensated - should contact Richard Edwards at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Do's and Do Not's for Parents: In my many years as a high school coach, I hear and can tell many stories on parents and what they say and do during their child's career. Enough stories to write a book that would take several days to read! Sometimes I like to think that 90 percent of what is said and done by parents is due to limited knowledge of a certain situation and/or how to handle situations. Unfortunately I know that while that is most often the case, things happen because a parent is just that, a parent. Fore more, click here.
