Fall ball

Fall ball is underway at the Mathews County Little League fields on the Piankatank Ruritan Club grounds in Hudgins. “We have had nearly 150 kids sign up for the fall season,” MLL president Ricky Wiatt announced on Facebook back in September. Last Thursday, the Mathews Junior softball girls took on their neighbors to the north, with Middlesex prevailing, 4-1. The photos, from left, show Mathews pitcher Avery Thomas, who came on in relief; Blue Devil Callie Penick stealing third base as Middlesex’s Courtney Jessie goes after a high throw; and Mathews player Lyndsey Coons (#2) taking the throw from shortstop Whitney Stewart to force out Middlesex’s Libby Oliver.
