We are pleased to announce Gary Bell as our head pitching coach for the Lightning Baseball Program!! Gary brings a wealth of baseball knowledge and will be a huge asset to the program. Starting in January 2017, he will direct all pitching instruction for our 8U, 9U, and 10U groups. Here are a few of Gary’s baseball related accomplishments:

  • (2000) – Florida Junior College Player of the Year
  • (2000 – 2002) – University of South Carolina Baseball
  • (2002) – College World Series Runner-Up & 1st Team SEC Tournament Team

We’ve known Gary since we were young kids and the value he brings to the program far exceeds his on-field accomplishments. He is a business leader in our community and possesses the ideal temperament for our young kids. This is a huge value addition to the program and we cannot wait to get to work. Please welcome Gary to the Lightning Baseball Family!!
