Local Business Owner Getting Back into the Swing of Things
It’s never too late to pick up the bat again. even when you own a company.
That seems to be the philosophy of choice for former MLB pitcher and president of Southpaw Roofing David Noyce, who recently announced that his Second Annual Southpaw Roofing Youth Baseball Camp is being held at North Augusta’s Riverview Park.from 9:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 9.
The camp, sponsored by Southpaw Roofing, is free and open to all children ages 8-12.
Noyce says the camp includes a staff of elite instructors who have played baseball at a high level. Their goal is to teach kids the value of hard work, and that they can be whatever they want to be in life.
“There will be a strong emphasis on playing the game of baseball the right way,” Noyce said in a statement.
Former Chicago Cubs pitcher Steve Smyth and former Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Matt Childers are just a couple of Noyce’s all-star lineup of instructors.
Ron Smith, former coach at Furman University and a great influence on Noyce, will also speak at the camp.
Noyce attended Furman University on a baseball scholarship. In 1998, he was drafted by the Florida Marlins. Later, he pitched for the Chicago Cubs and Arizona Diamondbacks before suffering a career-ending injury. Upon retiring from baseball, David settled down with his wife, Jami, in the Augusta area.
Interested parents are invited to bring boys and girls (again, ages 8-12) to Riverview Park to register between 8:00 a.m. and 8:45 a.m. on Saturday morning, Sept. 9.
