For the first time we moved this event away in from the loyal hosts atUSC and slid down Hwy 378 to a brand new partner in Historic Riley Park, right in the heart of Sumter, SC. Their hospitality was amazing and so was some of the baseball that we had a front row seat to view! Stay tuned to DP during this week as we take a look back and compile, then churn out info that takes you right to the action!
