NORWALK — The annual Lefty Grove bat-a-thon is scheduled for June 16.

The event is the only fundraiser the longtime summer baseball league has, and all players are encouraged to participate.

The event will be held from 9 a.m.-12 p.m. at the VFW Fields on June 16. The bat-a-thon is for all players in the Bantam, Colt and Junior divisions. Players in those division will be asking for sponsors for 20 pitches they get to take swings on.

Team managers are asked to supply each player on their team with an official form. Managers wishing to run their own bat-a-thon time should feel free to do so, such as after a game when fields will be free.

Players in the Senior division will have a home run derby on Field No. 1, which will run from 8 a.m.-3:30 p.m. on June 16. Coaches and other adults are invited to show their skill and power in batting. There will be a player champion and an adult champion.
