Wilson Central coach Anthony Ford and Mt. Juliet skipper Mark Purvis will be recognized for their achievements at the high school level. Both played at Cumberland for veteran coach Woody Hunt -- Ford pitched and Purvis was a second baseman. The event is sponsored by Modern Woodmen Fraternal Financial and includes dinner sponsored by Outback Steakhouse. As always, a silent auction of baseball memorabilia as well as other donated items will be available.
A portion of the proceeds will go toward ongoing renovations at Ernest L. Stockton Field. Construction is presently underway on new fencing designed to enclose the facility and the relocation of both the leftfield and rightfield bullpens.
