Athlete of the Week: Manny Berdayes

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - The Socastee baseball team continues to rack up wins, but still haven't been getting much attention.

A big part of Socastee's success this year is senior Manny Berdayes.

While his stats won't jump out at you right away, Manny is part of a senior class that has set their sights on making 2012 a year to remember and making sure that the best is yet to come.

"Right now the goal is to win one game at a time, don't try to do too much, just play Socastee baseball.  The team goal is to try and win the region championship because that's never been done here," Berdayes continued, "Make it real far in playoffs and hopefully we'll do real good in the playoffs and go to states."

It's the little things Manny does that mean the most for the Braves.  Like helping guide Socastee's young pitching staff through the season

"With freshmen it's a little bit of a tougher challenge, because they're young and they're nervous.  You kind of have to calm them down when they go out there to the mound, it's just a battle out there for them," Berdayes added, "That's what I'm there for, I'm there to calm them down, help them throw strikes and pitch a good baseball game to get us the W."

Manny has plans on playing baseball on the next level, but still hasn't decided where he wants to go.

    Summer hasn't even technically started, yet the summer-like heat and humidity will continue to reach uncomfortable levels the next few days. We start off this morning with mugginess in the air. High temperatures reach near 87 along the Grand Strand but easily make it into the low 90s inland. The heat index will feel like 95 to 100 along the coast, but more like 102 to 105 inland.
