ABAC’S Baseball Preview


WELCOME TO ABRAHAM BALDWIN AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE,
I’M TANNER ANDERSON HERE WITH YOUR STALLION NEWS FOR AUGUST 26TH, 2016 THE ABACS BASEBALL TEAM IS ALREADY ON THE
FIELD AND PRACTICING FOR THE FALL SEASON. LAST YEAR THE STALLIONS PLACE THIRD IN THE
LEAGUE. DRAYTON HOLMES SPOKE WITH COACH BRANDON REEDER
ABOUT THE UPCOMING YEAR. (——-TAKE PACKAGE——)
Drayton Holmes:  All right we’re sitting with coach Brandon
Reeder and you’re Abac’s baseball coach, right? Coach Reeder:
 Correct DH:
 So are there any new additions to the team this year, whether it be equipment or new
players, that are going to really help this season. CR:
 Yeah we’ve got several incoming guys. Several local as well. I try to get as many of the local guys as
we can especially the good ones and keep them close to home. It’s a lot easier to recruit guys that are
near here and know what ABAC has to offer as an institution academically and then as
well as athletically. Other additions we’ve got this past December
we added new stands, press box, scoreboard and then also this upcoming fall we’re getting
new dugouts bathrooms and stuff. And you know just upgrade the facilities that
really have needed it in years past. DH:
 So what would you say are some effective coaching techniques that you have implemented
that you have found that worked. CR:
  Just being positive is one thing these guys are 18, 19 years old you know being too
hard or down on them can be can be negatively effective. So I try to be as positive as I can. There are some times where they need a good
kick in the butt. But being positive overall has been a technique
that I like to use. DH:
 So what are you really excited about, what are you going to expect, what do you hope
to see this year. SPEAKER: M3
 One thing that excites me a lot is that we have some guys returning from a successful
year last year with some experience. We got a starter that’s for turning on the
mound, Chandler Hymin. We’ve got two really experienced, two guys
who had really good years in the bullpen, Tristan Dorwty and Austin Gaston who was a
conference closer to all conference closer in that role. And you know guys had good years in there
last year and they come in expecting it knowing that their role would be the same or maybe
even increasing their responsibilities increase and they can embrace that. And then some of the incoming guys being local
and getting some of those quality guys it’ll help build the program. We’ve got Cole Garrett come from Berrien County,
and we’ve got Zane Fulsom from Cook, Bo Vickers from here in Tifton. You know those guys can be contributors for
two, three years to come just depending on you know what their role might be. So really having the guys the influx of talent
coming in with what we have coming back and the experience that’s what’s going to make
for a good team IN THE FALL THEY PLAY UNSCORED SCRIMMAGES. WE’LL LET YOU KNOW ANY TIME THERE IS A HOME
GAME. WOMEN’S EQUALITY DAY IS FRIDAY AUGUST 26TH,
