TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — For 14 years, Chicago Cubs manager David Ross and Florida A&M baseball assistant coach Bryan Henry have teamed up for a father-son baseball camp. Bringing together both their love for family and the American pastime in Tallahassee.
The cold Saturday morning was not up to the memories that every child and their parents were able to share at Chiles High School. A wide range of different skill drills hosted by current college and professional baseball players brought together an event that showcases what is so great about the sport of baseball in the capital. While displaying the local talent that has come out of the Tallahassee area.
“It doesn’t feel like you can only come from this big city or play against this team in Atlanta. Who has all this greatest talent. No, a lot of good baseball talent came out of Tallahassee, a lot really good baseball players. It’s a really good baseball community in my opinion,” Ross told ABC 27. “Luke Weaver, John Nogowski, they’re everywhere. It’s FSU, it’s Florida A&M, it’s it’s TCC. It’s local high schools like Chiles, Florida High, Godby, Leon, Lincoln it’s real. I love it. I love it about Tallahassee. I feel like it’s a baseball city.
