Summer League Baseball: Cory McCullick

With about three weeks left, things are starting to heat up as we approach the home stretch. Over the past couple of weeks we have been bouncing in and out of first place. We currently sit 2.5 games back of the league leader with some important games in the near future.

Weather has continued to be great, about 90 during the day and cooling down just in time for the game. We finish the season with our last road trip starting Monday, and then are home for the rest of the regular season. Our all star break is three days next week that will give those who do not make the team or want to go work out for scouts, some time to go home and see friends and family.

On the few off days we have had, many of the guys have taken advantage of the free movie deal we have at a local theater. In our free time we have also been able to do some fishing, visit a nearby water park, and spend quality time in our lovely trailer.

It has been a lot of fun to become close friends with guys from all around the country. We have learned not only from their different styles of baseball, but some of their weird habits and numerous words that we can not understand in their southern accent.

We quickly learned that in this fairly small town, baseball is about all these people have to do in the summer. So as the regular season winds down, we are looking to make one last push to take over first place and make our owners, and the town of Fulton proud.
