Ebenezer, Effingham and South Effingham middle schools are partnering to play the first Middle School Baseball Benefit for ALS.
The games will be played Feb. 26 at the Effingham County Middle School baseball field, adjacent to Georgia Power on Highway 119 in Springfield. All proceeds will go to the Sunrise Rotary Club. The benefit is in honor of Rob Porterfield, principal of ECMS, who has been diagnosed with ALS.
Along with the three eight-inning games (four innings varsity, four innings junior varsity), there will be a home run/hit derby, a silent auction bake sale and a 50/50 raffle. Adults and children may participate in the home run/hit derby with a $5 entry fee. You may sign up early for the home run derby through coach Garrett Cox by e-mailing him at firstname.lastname@example.org. Cost to get into the games is $2 per person. Infants will be admitted free of charge. Donations will be accepted and appreciated.
