Little Leaguer to toss first pitch at Suns game

August 22, 2011|Kristy Smith | Around Boonsboro

Recently, the Diamonds baseball staff held the Nick Adenhart Baseball Camp as a fundraiser for Nick's Foundation. An item from the corresponding silent auction included four tickets and the right to throw out the first pitch, donated by the Hagerstown Suns.

The winning bid was placed by the family of Chase Dorsey, a Little Leaguer from South Mountain Little League. He was scheduled to toss the first pitch at Monday's Suns game.
