Darton State College (Georgia) coach Scot Hemmings, left, and Chattahoochee Valley Community College (Alabama) coach Adam Thomas, right, watch their respective teams practice Friday before the Alpine Bank Junior College World Series begins. The two coaches are family, with Hemmings married to Thomas’ sister. Their familial bonds may be tested if the Cavaliers and Pirates win enough games to force the two teams to play each other.

A family affair

Brothers-in-law coaches for Chatt Valley, Darton St. thrilled to be at JUCO together

When the Thomas and Hemmings families gather, baseball always seems to be on the conversation agenda.
Even during the holidays, through the tryptophan haze and before the pumpkin pie, even before, during and after the football games, the talk always seems to drift to the subject of baseball.
That’s because baseball is a big part of both families’ lives.
