Houston’s James Scurlock recently completed a one-week session of intensive baseball training at Mickey Owen Baseball School near Miller.
During his stay, Scurlock received specialized training in all phases of baseball through a combination of instruction, practice and game experience. Parts of the sessions included use of video tape replay and personalized training from top baseball instructors from college and professional baseball who enabled him to improve his skills.
The school was founded in 1959 by former major league catcher Mickey Owen to provide young players an opportunity to learn about baseball through systematic, personal instruction. Each summer, students come from all over the world to play, eat and sleep baseball.
Scurlock is the son of James and Estella Scurlock.
