Sometimes, you don’t have to be a person who grabs the headlines to make an impact on the lives of people --- both young and old --- in the world of Kershaw County athletics.Over the past few days and weeks, the sports world in and around the county lost a pair of men in whose lives athletics played a central role.In late May, Ernie Mills passed away. Then, last week, James “Foots” Hasty left us. Both men were colorful characters who had a plethora of stories to tell and always had the best interests of young people at heart.Ernie Mills was a person familiar to almost anyone who had anything to do with baseball in and around Kershaw County.
