MT. VERNON —
“We lost eight of our nine position players so this will be a good experience for them,” Holloway said. “(We'll) get away from home, get out of our comfort zone a little bit and go play some very good competition and see where we're at.”
The Rams baseball team also has a golf fundraiser coming up Oct. 12. The event will be held at Green Hills Golf Course in Mt. Vernon. The money raised will go toward equipment and trips the team takes to minor league ballparks like Rent One Park (Marion) and GCS Park (Sauget).
“The golf outing is a good way for people in the community as well as former Mt. Vernon athletes to come out and show their support and enjoy a day of golf and have a good time and maybe reconnect with former teammate,” Holloway said. “It's some thing we hope to turn into an annual event.”
