For most people, when to make a change can be a hard decision to make. Just take Poteau Pirates Baseball Coach Ronnie Sockey.
After being at Poteau for 13 seasons, 11 of which was also spent as assistant fast-pitch softball coach, Sockey has decided it's time for a change. He accepted the job as the new fast-pitch softball coach at Greenwood (Ark.) High School.
â€śThey were looking for someone to coach softball,â€ť Sockey said. â€śIt's always hard to pick the right time to leave, but it's going to be a challenge. They're just now trying to get fast-pitch going in Arkansas. They have a great grade school over there, and they have great facilities. It's going to be a challenge, and a bigger school system. It was one of those deals where you don't know if this type of job was ever going to come again.â€ť
