West Columbia, SC (WLTX) --- Former USC Gamecocks Jackie Bradley, Jr. and Scott Wingo spent their Monday evening speaking to area youngsters at Pineview Park.

Bradley and Wingo drew a large contingent of Dixie Youth players from the West Columbia area. The two men, who will be embarking on their minor league assignments later this week, answered questions from the crowd before spending nearly 90 minutes signing autographs and posing for pictures.

The two ex-Gamecocks, who helped USC win back to back national titles, say their time spent at the parkwas enjoyable and it reminded them of when they were that age and how they appreciated athletes coming to speak.

Now they are the ones who are receiving the invitations to speak.
