    I played baseball against Jimmy in summer ball and high school for 4 or 5 years.The Fowlkes family were legends at Medlock Park and Decatur.Doc Fowlkes was a Coach everyone want to play for and you wanted Jimmy on your team.I had the pleasure of playing for his Brother Eddie for 2 years and learned more in those years then all combined during my playing day.I all goes back to Doc Fowlkes teaching them the fundamentals of the game.Jimmy learned from the best and after collage to his knowledge and skills to teach kids how to play the game.Probably not only teaching but how to be a good person playing the game and carry yourself in life in general.Reconnecting on FB after 40 years I see his kids competeing and know the have the best teacher,role model and father who loves them and is showing them the right path in sports and life in general

Find out as much as you can about the instructor. Mainly how well he works with players in your age group.

Are you committed to becoming a better ball player, and are you willing to listen to your instructor? Most importantly, don't be afraid to ask questions about what you are being taught.
