Summer baseball is in full swing, and one local team is looking and working toward the future of the sport at Myrtle.
The Myrtle Blackhawks U9 team were organized four years ago by Tim Maharrey and Robert Gordon with the hopes of keeping the kids together on the same traveling team.
“We wanted to keep all of our kids in Union County,” Maharrey said. “They all go to school together and play together, so we thought why not start this and keep them together. So far they’ve done real well.”
