Stearns to play in North-South Classic

Senior Abe Stearns will get to participate in one final game on behalf of Point Pleasant this Sunday when the Potomac State signee takes part in the 2017 West Virginia Baseball Coaches Association North-South All-Star Classic being held at Glenville State College. Stearns, a four-year letterwinner and all-state honoree, was the lone Mason County athlete chosen to participate in the annual event as he will be a member of the South squad being led by Greenbrier East skipper Cory Mann. The doubleheader extravaganza starts at noon and will consist of seven-inning contests that follow state guidelines, with the exception of no mercy-rule outcomes and no extra innings. Admission to the game will cost $5 for adults and $3 for both senior citizens and children under 12 years of age. The North squad is being led by Jeff Thompson of Roane County.
