“For its one, two, three strikes, your out, at the old ball game.” Come out and join in the celebration this weekend at the All Star Florida and Georgia Men’s Adult Baseball League. The League will be Rookies vs. Veterans and will include several players who have made a great name for themselves in baseball.
The game begins at 7 p.m. Sunday, July 31, but events begin at 6 p.m. The cost of admission will be one canned food item or a $1 donation for the Second Harvest Food Bank. The teams will be playing at the Lowndes High School baseball field, which is located on Norman Drive in Valdosta.
Amber Abbott, Madison local and very talented singer, will begin the baseball game by singing the National Anthem. She will begin singing at 6:45 p.m.
Who would have thought to combine baseball and dancing? While this combination may seem unusual, the dancers at Becky’s will be doing just that. The group of girls will be showing off their talents in front of the stands before the beginning of the seventh inning. Their dance is a little different than the flowing and graceful numbers that are usually seen from Becky’s Dance Step Studios. The group will be dressed in their best country attire and will be dancing to Luke Bryan’s “Country Girl.”
The girls will also be selling raffle tickets for American Aluminum. The cost for one ticket is $5 or a person can purchase five tickets for $20. The winner of the raffle will get a chrome toolbox or dog box for their truck. The toolbox or dog box can be customized any way they want. It is valued at $369.
Greg Vickers, League President, would like to ask the community to, “Come out and support not just baseball but also the other events that are included in this.
The girls from Madison, the Second Harvest, they are all really good things to come out and support them. It would be really positive to get the public from Madison to come support this event.”
Come out and show your support for the players, the dancers and Amber Abbott this Sunday.
