Safe At Home Baseball Camp At East Ridge Is Saturday

Thursday, December 27, 2012

The East Ridge Parks and Recreation and Safe At Home Baseball will present an Instructional Camp/Showcase on Saturday. 

The camp starts at 9 a.m. at the Old School Hardball training facility located in McBrien School at 1517 Tombras Ave., behind the East Ridge City Hall, East Ridge Community and Pioneer Park.

East Ridge Parks and Recreation Director Stump Martin said it’s always a pleasure to work with Stan Teem and his Safe at Home Baseball organization. 

“Stan does a great job with these camps because he gets a lot of college coaches and professional scouts there,” Mr. Martin said. “The exposure for the athletes is needed today and with Teem being a Minnesota Twins scout he understands this.”

Mr. Teem said, “We’re trying to give those who want to play college or possibly professional baseball the opportunity. We’re interested in these kids going to school so they keep playing baseball and some will become prospects. There are more than 50 kids who have come to our showcases and have gone on to play in college.”  

Mr. Martin said Mr. Teem runs successful baseball camps through his Christian-based Safe at Home Baseball organization.

“Stan’s heart is in the right place,” Mr. Martin said.

All middle school and high school players are invited to the Safe At Home Baseball Instructional Camp/Showcase.  All players will play in at least one game (weather permitting) and will participate in all workouts indoor and outdoor.

The instructional camp will be conducted on-the-field by the college and high school coaches as well as current professional baseball players and professional baseball scouts. There will be a Q&A session for parent interaction with the college coaches and pro scouts.

Cost for this camp is $100 and is for fift-12th graders.

There is limited availability, so please contact Safe At Home Baseball, attention Stan Teem, 308 Carlock Lane, Ringgold, Ga. 30736 or call 423 280-2584 or email

Regulations As A Whole On Signal Mountain

A few years ago I was flying over Chattanooga on my way to Atlanta.  The sun had just come up and I enjoyed picking out Signal Mountain’s location, on Walden’s Ridge, in the morning light.  What was amazing was that I could not tell that a town existed under the tree canopy.  I hope that the same can be said 10, 20, or even 50 years from now.  During last ...
