Scotland High to host 1st annual alumni baseball game

Scotland High School will host the first annual Tommy Britt Alumni Game on Saturday, March 12 at 12:30 p.m.

The contest, which will feature Scotland varsity baseball players of year’s past, is free to attend and free food will also be served. The game will be played between two teams — odd graduating years will compete against even graduating years.

A homerun derby will follow, and it costs $5 to enter. The derby features a five-swing format, and the top two leaders will advance to the championship round. The winner earns half of the money raised by the derby entries.
