Hugh Gorie’s passion keeps the mostly black Community All-Star Baseball League thriving in rural South Carolina
The sounds of our national pastime resonate in rural South Carolina, thanks to one man’s lifelong love of the game.
On weekdays, you'll find Duke Energy security officer Hugh Gorie helping keep watch over Oconee Nuclear Station near Seneca, S.C. On weekends from April to September, you'll find him on baseball diamonds across his native South Carolina, keeping baseball alive in towns such as Newberry, Lancaster and Lexington. Here, the men play for the love of the game and for the fans who cheer them on -- when those fans aren’t tending to their grills for the postgame cookout.
