This was the second year for Red Bay High School’s alumni baseball game, and Coach Richard Maggerise said community enthusiasm for the event is growing.

“You know it’s not a high school game when you hear people hollering ‘Daddy!’ from the stands,” Maggerise joked.

This year’s series of games featured two teams of Red Bay alumni as well as a Tharptown team, making possible a three-game series.

“The guys really enjoyed it. A lot of them hadn’t gotten to play in a while,” Maggerise said. “As soon as the games were over with, I already had people asking me when we are going to do it next year.”

The alumni game is partially a fundraiser, but Maggerise said the priority is geared toward generating excitement in the program and building Tiger spirit. “It was fun for everybody, I believe,” he said.

Next year, Maggerise hopes to start a Men with Bats adult baseball league and play multiple games throughout the month of June, with teams made up of men from across the county. “We had a ton of people who were really interested in it,” he said.
