The Starkville Academy Volunteers don't worry about support as far as the baseball program is concerned.
Jody Britt, who begins his first season as the head coach of the Vols, has witnessed this first hand.
“It has been a blessing to see how much people have stood behind and how much people have worked,” Britt said. “They show up to help. They ask what we need and the kids are starting to see it.”
Britt and his team got an up close glimpse of how much the Starkville Academy faithful care about their programs on Saturday when the team held a work day.
The coach saw about 60-70 people show up and not only did they take care of the to-do list, they went above and beyond working on things that the coach did not even anticipate fixing.
“People were asking can we do this?” Britt said. “It was stuff that wasn’t on the list that they just wanted to see it done. The field and facility took a huge facelift Saturday with all the people that showed up to help. It makes you look forward to a season. It also puts a bit more pressure on you with everyone so excited, but we are hoping to get off to a good start and ride the momentum all the way into our regional play.”
