Last weekend a few local “kickballers” organized the area’s first ever charity co-ed kickball tournament and home run derby, raising money for Brantwood Childrens Home. The winning team took home $750. According to a WSFA news report, the organizers hope that this is the first of many. Participants came to MGM from as far as Dothan, Enterprise, Auburn, Florida and Albany, Georgia.
The organizers recognized and thanked their sponsors on the Facebook page for the event:
