Benefit Old Timer Baseball Game

 

There will be a benefit baseball experience on May 28th, starting about 6pm at Legion Field in Valentine. A group of “old timers” has challenged the Senior Legion team to a ball game.

The evening will start with the 13 and 14 year old Teener team playing the 15 and 16 year old Junior Legion squad. Legion coach Kent Lopez reports that after that contest, they will get out the pitching machine and have a home run derby featuring several old timers, swinging for the fence. Then the old timers will play the senior legion in an exhibition game to raise money for new bats for the teener program and a tarp to protect the pitchers mound at legion field. For more information contact Kent Lopez or Gabe Doney.
