Final season game for African-American youth baseball
First pitch this evening for the final game of the season for African-American youth baseball in the Upstate will be 5:30 at Greenville’s Timmons Park at 121 Oxford Street. The program to interest inner-city youth from across the Upstate in America’s national past time is considered to have been a success this summer, and program facilitator Calvin Ivery is hopeful the program can be brought back next year. Forty-eight youngsters participated. The baseball-watching public is invited for the game, as well as a cookout with the parents.
