For five nights each spring week, you’ll find a large gathering of boys and girls on teams playing against one another in Carter County American Little League baseball and softball. Each Wednesday, however, only one team takes the field and none of its participants have matching uniforms — nor are they competing against each other.
“God’s team” was out in full force during “Wednesday Winners” worship service at the Carter County American Little League Field Wednesday evening. Calvary Baptist Church in Elizabethton was the host church for this week’s event.
Several turned out for night to hear the gospel proclaimed through message and song. They also enjoyed hot dogs, drinks and a wide variety of games.
League president Lee Woodby came up with the idea, and some others have helped make it a reality.
