Terrance Gore visits GMC Prep Baseball Teams

GMC Prep High School and Middle School Baseball Programs were recently visited by current Major League Baseball Player and 2015 World Series Champion Terrance Gore.  He played his high school ball at Jones County and was coached by three of our own.  Head Varsity Coach Allen Simmons, Assistant Coach Jeff Ward, and Head Middle School Coach Rusty Courson all coached him while he was in high school.  After high school Terrance played one year at Gulf Coast Community College in Panama City Florida where he hit .330 while stealing 51 bases in 54 attempts.  He was then drafted in the 20th round by the Kansas City Royals.  Because of his base stealing ability,  he was brought up to the major league roster for the playoffs and has stolen 8 bases the last two seasons.  He worked with the players on hitting, outfield defense, and base stealing.  He also shared with them what it is like to play professional baseball.  The GMC Prep coaching staff cannot thank him enough for taking time out of his busy off-season schedule to work with our players here at GMC.  The players really enjoyed working and talking with him and will certainly remember their time with him.  Thanks to all who made this great memory happen.
