Good turnout for Spring Buddy Ball.

The eighth annual Spring Buddy Ball game was held in a new location, fields at Middle Georgia State University in Cochran.  Buddies came from the Knights athletic department.  But it didn't seem to matter to about 80 special needs children who got their names announced just like baseball players did, and ran the bases, some with the help of their buddies.  After the medal presentation and group pictures, they enjoyed hamburgers and hot dogs.

Fall Buddy Ball will be October 7 and returns to the Cochran Bleckley Rec. Department.
