Sneads High School graduate Josh Baxley is moving on up and signed his letter of intent last Thursday in front of teammates, friends, faculty and family. Reinhardt University will be where Baxley hangs his cleats next season.
Josh said it was an easy one, “I had some other offers but Reinhardt offered me the most and I like where it’s located. It’s a smaller school in Waleska, Georgia.”
Baxley has played baseball since he started tee ball at the age of four. He played middle school ball at Grand Ridge and high school ball at Marianna before returning to Sneads for his senior season under coach Andy Shelton. Baxley has played primarily short with some time at third base. He has also played travel ball under coach Chris ‘Hutch’ Hutchinson.
As far as how he got to where he is today, Josh says, “I’d have to thank my coaches, Coach Hutch, Coach Shelton and Green and the Hughes at Marianna.”
Baxley expects to play shortstop at Reinhardt.
Josh is the son of James and Sandra Baxley.
The publisher and staff of the Jackson County Times congratulates Josh Baxley for a job well done.
