Lo­cal youth fight­ing on dur­ing soft­ball sea­son

The Standard Journal - - LOCAL SPORTS - Staff re­ports

It’s the tale of games across the area: a lucky hit will help break a tie and bring one team to vic­tory, and the other left with a de­feat.

Such was the story dur­ing a March 28 match-up be­tween the Cedar­town Red Lady Dawgs soft­ball team from the recreation depart­ment, and a Rock­mart team. Late in the game as the two teams were tied 7-7, Bella Bai­ley got to step onto home plate af­ter a team­mate knocked a hit and bring in a win as time was ex­pir­ing.

It was just one of many games held over the past week as the youth recreation sea­son con­tin­ues in soft­ball and Lit­tle League play­ers get out on the di­a­mond. Want to share your youth’s photos and fun on the field? E-mail them to [email protected]­stan­dard­jour­nal.net to­day.
