Mike Johnson Park hosting four decades of ballplayers

  • Wednesday, April 16, 2014

Chris Sokoloski/Times A reunion will be held Saturday at Mike Johnson Park to celebrate legendary coach Mike Johnson’s four decades of coaching Georgetown County’s baseball players.

Former Howard, Winyah and Georgetown high schools baseball players from the past 40 years will be having a “Celebrating Georgetown Baseball Reunion” on Saturday at Mike Johnson Park from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m.

Spearheading this reunion in an effort to join all former players under the legendary coach Mike Johnson are former players from the very first team coached by Johnson, along with former coaches and community members.

Georgetown is a unique town and baseball is regarded as one of the highlights here and many people are excited when the season arrives. With such enthusiastic emphasis on this sport and the longevity of Johnson at the helm of numerous teams, the historical significance of the field and its No. 1 stadium ranking in the state by Diamond Prospects, are the many reasons it is fitting to organize an event to gather all these former players together.

Go to www.gtownbaseball.com for information about purchasing tickets and sponsorships. Tickets are $20 per person and sponsorships are $100 and include two tickets and name in program.

Tickets and sponsor forms are also available at Tony Jordan Insurance Agency, 1307 Highmarket St. in Georgetown, and will be available event day at the stadium.

Lunch will be served followed by a brief ceremony and presentation.

All former Howard, Winyah and Georgetown high players and interested community citizens are invited.
