“We like to kind of get somebody who can give a good message,” Charles Henderson head baseball coach Derek Irons said. “Wesley is a Pike County native and entering his eighth season and he is a success story and he can give a great message.”

This will be the sixth year Charles Henderson has held this event and Irons said the community has been generous with its support every time.

“We always have a pretty good turnout and our community is so supportive of our school in so many ways and certainly baseball and softball fall under that,” Irons said.

Tickets for the event are $15 for adults and $10 for children 12 and under and can be purchased from any CHHS baseball or softball player.
