RHS baseball team sets ‘Derby’ Monday

Fundraiser for program to be held at Bearcats’ diamond

Ruston High School’s baseball team gets in the spring playing mood Monday when the program’s annual “Home Run Derby” is held at the Bearcats’ diamond located on Ball Park Road.
The derby is set to begin at 5:30 p.m. and is open to the general public. Each player (freshmen, junior varsity, varsity) will receive 10 pitches to see how far they can hit the baseball. The longest ball will qualify for the fundraising effort of the program (example: if a player hits one 300 feet and had a sponsor for 10 cents per foot, the result would be a $30 donation to the program).
