Diamond Notes: Al’s View

Al’s View

He’s back! Well, not really.

Al Hudson, former Head Coach and founder of the Diamond Travelers is going to be a contributing writer to TheDiamondProspects.com website. Hudson, now living in Nashville, Tennessee, was involved in South Carolina prep baseball in several capacities from 1989 to 2003. A bird dog scout for the Los Angeles Dodgers, writer and baseball editor for the High School Sports Report, and contributor for Jim Baxter’s SC Prep website, Al visited many high school campuses during his time in South Carolina.

“I truly enjoyed my experiences in South Carolina. My ranking list was published statewide by several outlets. I know my opinion, at times, was controversial. But I look back with a clear conscience about my work. I tried to make all my decisions based on current ability and college potential skills.”

Hudson is currently employed as assistant coach/recruiting coordinator at Martin Methodist College in Pulaski, Tennessee.

“I still have family in Charleston, but I don’t get there as much as I like. I miss South Carolina and the coast in particular. I have many friends in the state, and would love to see them all.”

“When my good friend, Austin Alexander, asked me to contribute to the site, I was honored to accept. Hopefully, I can remain in touch with the baseball family in the state.”

Diamond Prospects will continue to provide Hudson’s take on a variety of baseball issues, stay tuned over the coming months!

About the author: Hudson writes for a Nashville-based paper as a sideline. His column is sports based, and covers the full gamut of athletics. His contribution here will be totally baseball.
