Mayflower, Vilonia teams to play at Dickey-Stephens for storm relief

Posted: May 1, 2014 - 1:24pm

The Mayflower Eagles and Vilonia Eagles varsity baseball teams will play in a game at Dickey-Stephens Park in North Little Rock on Tuesday with all proceeds benefitting the two cities' rebuilding efforts from Sunday's tornado.

Admission  will be free, but donations will be collected by each high school's cheerleading squads. Also, all proceeds from concession sales will go directly to those affected.

Gates will open at 4:30 p.m. and first pitch is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. at Dickey-Stephens Park, the home of the Arkansas Travelers

 Both mayors, James Firestone of Vilonia and Randy Holland of Mayflower, will be present to host a moment of silence for their citizens and throw out the ceremonial first pitches.

The game will last seven innings and concessions will be available serving hot dogs, fountain drinks and peanuts.

Local representatives from Centennial Bank and First Security Bank will be present to account for the donations and distribute them to each city official.

Fantastic idea

The person or group that came up with this idea needs a huge pat on the back. Any way to find out who that was? Great way to give some residents some 'normalcy' if there can be such a thing in a time of disaster like we have had. Go Eagles!
