Barnwell Minor All-Stars are runners-up for district title


The Barnwell Minor League All-Stars competed for the district championship on June 19. 

They played Orangeburg for the championship game at Lemon Park in Barnwell, but were defeated. Prior to that game, they were 3-1.

“It's moments like these that make coaching special. The interactions with the players, inside jokes, good and bad times, and the battles you and your team go through on the field,” said Carlos Carter, one of the coaches. 

While they didn’t win first place, the kids had moments that they'll remember forever. “The double plays, the bombs to home plate for outs, the hits, strikeouts, laughter and fun. That's a win in itself,” said Carter, who congratulated his players and thanked his fellow coaches, Jared Thrasher and Josh Givens.
