Wooden bats make their return to high school baseball this week with the Kershaw-Richland Spring Break Baseball Tournament which begins today and runs through Thursday.
This year, the Kershaw County portion of the tournament will be played at American Legion Park in Camden which will also play host to Thursday’s four games and the skills competition --- base running, 4-corners, catcher throw, outfield throw and home run derby --- with players from all eight competing schools taking part in the event.
As was the case a year ago, the entire tournament will be played with varsity batters only being allowed to use wooden bats.
The four varsity teams competing in Camden will be the host Bulldogs, Lugoff-Elgin, Lower Richland and South Florence. The Richland County portion of the event will be hosted by Richland Northeast High School and will include the host Cavaliers, Dutch Fork, Ridge View and Westwood.
