Who is Ron Polk? Mr. SEC Baseball, the king of college baseball he has been called many things.

Whatever name one might want to hang on him, the most accurate would be “winner”. As in the winner of 1373 games, been to College World Series 8 times with 3 different teams. A member of the Baseball Hall of Fame, Coach Polk also has written two of the most widely read books in the country on coaching baseball and softball. For all the new coaches and old ones out there. If you ever wanted professional advise on how to deal with parents, umpires, fans, kids and a host of other issues that coaches must deal with, the answer very well may be with Coach Polk. His talks such as the one taking place at Crisp County High on Monday March 7, 2016 at 7:00p.m. are nothing short of phenomenal. Dinner will be served in the event and anyone attending should treat it as a learning experience.  Cost is $25.00 including meal and coaches from 8 and under ball programs to adults should attend.
