Chad Spalding could field a baseball team with his coaching staff. And that's just the way he likes it.
Marion County High School's baseball team currently has a staff of nine coaches, including Spalding, taking care of all the varsity, junior varsity, freshman and middle school age players.
"I went from one staff member coaching with me early on with eight now. We're now up to 45 kids," he said. "Back then, it was 20. When we did infield practice, everybody was an infielder. I left exhausted. Now I leave with a lot more energy."
