It was baseball central in Jones County last week, with the Greyhounds hosting their annual youth baseball camp and the Jones County Summer Shootout tournament for high school-age players.

Kids ages 5-12 took part in the camp, held at the high school baseball/softball complex and the Central Recreation Complex off Ga. 18 from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. each day. Coaches from the high school and middle schools, along with current and former players, served as the instructors. Photos from the camp are on page B2.

And from 11 a.m. until nearly 10 p.m. at night, a series of junior varsity and varsity baseball games were played at the high school field.

The annual tournament, organized by Jones County coach Barry Veal, is a way for coaches to work with players returning for next season and get a look at the younger players coming into the high school program.

In addition to the games played at JCHS, more games were also played at Northside High in Warner Robins and at Perry High. Other schools participating included Perry, Northside, Veterans, Houston County, Howard, Stratford, Dublin, Upson-Lee and Crisp County.

The varsity Greyhounds won four games and tied one in the Shootout. Jones County fielded two junior varsity teams, which together won eight games and lost two – including a matchup between the two Jones teams.
