PDCCC holds first baseball signing day

~Baseball gets underway in fall~

(Franklin, VA) –The new athletics program at Paul D. Camp Community College already holds promise as the college plans for its first baseball signing day.

More than 20 students have committed to attend PDCCC to play the sport by signing a Letter of Intent.

“This is an exciting kickoff to the program,” said David Mitchell, athletic director, head baseball coach and admissions recruiter. “This will be a real boost for enrollment as well at the college.”

A signing day ceremony took place June 27 in the library on the Franklin Campus, 100 North College Drive.

“Having a sports team will build on the camaraderie and cohesiveness that already exists at the college,” said PDCCC President Dr. Dan Lufkin. “This is an advantage we have of being a small educational institution.”
