The futures of the Jonathan Alder High School baseball and softball programs are in good shape.

The Pioneers diamond programs opened their fields up to area youngsters for their annual camps this week and dozens of boys and girls were able to learn skills they’ll be able use for years to come.

The coaching staff of each program used current and former players as instructors as they helped continue to support the Pioneer community.
