Default Bamberg High School Baseball Teams

We constantly talk about the great football programs in our state but does anyone remember what a great run on State Championships the Baseball Coach at Bamberg did in the 60's and 70's? Are there any players that maybe played for him on this website that could tell us what made them such a powerhouse for many years in the small city of Bamberg?

Coach Horton was a bad man when it came to baseball. His wife is a pretty sporty coach as well.

Combination of good talent and coaching. Once the system got rolling the future generations bought into it and did things the right way. I was able to coach against him during the last decade of his career and unfortunately saw his 700th win in person lol. Good man and coach and I hated to see him leave, but I know he wanted more time to watch his grand kids play baseball in the Atlanta area I believe.

Yeah, back in 1992 Bamberg had Preston Wilson, Mookie Wilson son. Funny thing is that Preston would have hit 50 homers that season, but no one would pitch to him. Think he end up with like 28 bombs for the season, then draft first round by Mets.

Hipp played at Nebraska.

Didn't realize the football team had its own streak.

I'm from Clinton - know all about those good ole Woodruff teams. The first extra playmaker I was old enough to remember was some guy named Tony Rice.

I know Tracy Wise (who played there in the mid 80s)... played softball against him. Heard he could flat kill a baseball.. Dude sure could hit it in softball.
