Bigger than just the game

July 22, 2021

Congratulations to Tuckahoe National Seniors

2021 Virginia Little League Senior Baseball State Champions!

After Tuckahoe LL Sr All-Stars won their District Championships, they knew their next stop would be Wise County, the 2021 host site for the State Championships. 

The team of 16 arrived on Thursday, and immediately following their first game and win of the tournament, they headed to the local Food City for a very special shopping trip. 

In the weeks preceding the tournament, the boys began fundraising efforts in their local community to raise funds to purchase food for the Food Bank of Wise County, where 22% of the population live below poverty level. 

The boys raised $2,336 total and used the money to purchase non perishable food items, which they personally delivered to the Food Bank of Wise County that afternoon. They hurried back to the fields for their next game and second victory. 

Way to go, TLL Senior All-Stars! We are proud of you for representing District 5 so well and understanding the game of baseball is bigger than just the game.
