Del Ray vs. Old Town Softball Battle


The Del Ray and Old Town business associations face off in this annual softball battle on Thursday, May 23 at 6 p.m. to benefit the Alexandria Little League scholarship fund.

This friendly rivalry will take place at little field at Eugene Simpson Park (426 E. Monroe Avenue). Team Del Ray, led by Coach Bill Blackburn of the Homegrown Restaurant Group, is looking forward to defending the John Porter Cup and champion status against Team Old Town, led by Trea Lamond of Chadwicks. Del Ray leads the series 3-2.

This event is sponsored by Port City Brewing Company, Simpson Real Estate and Yates  Service. Mayor Justin Wilson throws out the first pitch at 6pm. A gift basket of gift cards to Del Ray Businesses (valued at over $2,000!) will be raffled off for Alexandria Little League, who’s objective is “to implant firmly in the children of the community the ideals of good sportsmanship, honesty, loyalty, courage and respect for authority, so that they may well be adjusted, stronger, and happier children and will grow to be good, decent, healthy and trustworthy citizens.”

Raffle tickets will be on sale starting Tuesday, May 14. You do not need to be present to win the raffle! 

Go Team Del Ray!

*Note: Bleacher space is limited on the Del Ray side due to a large fan crowd. Please plan to bring camping chairs and a healthy dose of enthusiasm!
