2 Local Hospitals to Participate in Softball Game in Buckhannon

Posted: Updated:

Two local hospitals will duke it out on the diamond this weekend for a good cause.

Stonewall Jackson Memorial Hospital will host a softball game against St Joseph's Hospital in Buckhannon.

Proceeds from the game will go to support the United Way of Lewis, Gilmer, and Upshur counties. 

Organizers said the game will not only help the charity, it also will offer a good lesson to the players.

"When you have these teams for adults that is very important in wellness and people getting physically fit. So as well as raising money, it's also important to get people out and active," said Julia Spelsberg, of Stonewall Jackson Memorial Hospital.

The first pitch will be Sunday at 1:30 p.m. Tickets will be $2.
