UNION COUNTY — A parade was held Friday to recognize all Union County All-Star baseball teams.
Teams featured in the parade included Union County 5- and 6-Year-Olds, Union County Coaches’ Pitch, Union County Machine Pitch, Union County OZone, Union County Minors and Union County Dixie Boys. The parade began at the Union County YMCA and ended at the Union County Courthouse.
As winners of the state tournament, the Union County Dixie Youth AA Machine Pitch All-Stars team will represent Union County — and the state — in the World Series, which will be held Aug. 2-6 in North Myrtle Beach.
Following Friday’s parade, Timken Sports Complex hosted a Union County World Series Fun Day — which included a silent auction, a home run derby and music by DJ BIG — in support of the Union County Machine Pitch All-Stars team.
