The Loganville Hustle 10-U baseball team recently held a “Hit-A-Thon” to support Walton County Special Olympics. “These fine young boys raised over $1,738 and presented it to our athletes this evening. An awesome company heard what they did this evening and is going to match their donation! WOW what an honor it is,” said Amanda Reed, adding they would like to thank the following people: Hank Snell, Kingston Snowden, Jason Chait, Jackson Chait, Walker Yancey, Colton Hollis, Ryder Wainwright, Hudson Fuller, DJ Robinson, Klint Robinson, Cooper Holman-Beasley, Dorian Powell, Charlie Nelson and RJ Battersby as well as “Coach Devon.”
“They forgo ball games to volunteer their time and it is about “being bigger than ourselves” to give back,” the coach said.
