UNION — After having winning seasons, the University of South Carolina Union is eager for the Bantams baseball team to get on the field in the spring.

In 2013, the Bantams placed second in their conference and ranked number 4 in the nation out of 105 schools. The Bantams added to their winnings in 2013 as District IV East champions and then again in 2014 as District III West champions.

USC Union is pleased to announce that Union native, Jay Ford, will be the coach of our Bantam baseball team as of Aug. 21. Ford and his wife live in Buffalo and have two Golden Retrievers, one Husky, four horses and five cats. He is a graduate of Union High School and attended USC Union, as well as Maryville College in Tennessee.

Ford brings 17 years of coaching experience to the table and wants to make USC Union a top team in the nation.

“It’s a great school for students to find out who they are and it helps to build themselves as a student and a person. USC Union is a great campus with great people,” Ford says about USC Union.

The Bantams baseball team is a part of the National Club Baseball Association. It annually provides more than 4,500 college students with the chance to continue their competitive baseball careers and contend for a true national championship. The University of South Carolina Union will compete in the District IV Central Division in the spring. District IV Central Division teams include Furman University, Armstrong Atlantic State University, Presbyterian College, Orangeburg Calhoun Technical College, University of West Georgia and University of Tennessee.
