You can teach someone fundamentals, but you can't teach love of the game.
Former Starkville Academy coach Neal Henry never had to worry about that with Hunter Bolin.
“He loves baseball and he loves to go hit,” Henry said. “He is very baseball smart and his work ethic is one that you don’t have to worry about because he is a hard worker. I only had to tell him once and he gets it. He just came to the park everyday to get better.”
With the accomplishments this year, Bolin has been recognized as Starkville Daily News High School Baseball Player of the Year.
