Batters, look out. Ocean City High School’s formidable pitchers now have something else to give them an advantage.
One of the baseball team's assistant coaches, Frank Coppenbarger, who formerly served as the clubhouse manager the Phillies for 30 years, recommended someone to upgrade the pitcher’s mound at the high school’s baseball field.
