When a team goes 1-20, it has to be tough to muster hope for the next season. What can possibly help turn a program around in a single year? Well, hiring a former World Series champion might help.
That's what the Lower Richland (Hopkins, S.C.) High School athletic director is hoping. He just hired two-time Gold Glove award winner Pokey Reese to take over the struggling program.
Reese is best known for his years patrolling the infield in Boston, Cincinatti, and Pittsburgh's major league stadiums. He reached the pinnacle of the sport in 2004, winning a World Series ring with the Red Sox.
Long before reaching that high, he was a star shortstop at Lower Richland.

“I love this school,” Reese told the paper. “I love this community.”
