A toddler's excitement enveloped the acreage on and around the Loris High School baseball field tonight as the Camels played host to the Chief's Gold team of North Myrtle Beach High School on opening night of the dp Developmental Fall League season in the Grand Strand. With one team from the Grand Strand area last year that willingly traveled to the Lowcounty to be able to step on the diamond, tonight marked the first time in dp history that there would actually be a full league here on the coast.
The Chiefs Gold were represented by 2022 to 2025 grads from North Myrtle Beach and the Camels would be outfitted in a vastly different way. Holding true to the same theme as the Chiefs, the 'Humps' would have 2022 to 2025 grads as well - with one 2026 in the mix, however they hailed from four different high schools in the '843'. Loris, Green Sea - Floyds, Conway and Aynor players would come together to complete this roster so that baseball could be played and players be developed!
