Potters Baseball, a group of high school baseball players from several states, will travel this summer, visiting and interacting with communities in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, and North Carolina. Mount Olive has again been chosen again to serve as a host community in 2020.
Due to COVID-19, the contingency will be smaller, but the interaction will be just as impactful on the Mount Olive community. Twelve players and three coaches will arrive in Mount Olive on Saturday, July 25, and depart on Monday, July 27.
In addition to the Mount Olive Chamber and Town of Mount Olive, Make a Difference Food Pantry will serve as a sponsor of Potters Baseball.
While Potter Baseball is in Mount Olive, they will prepare meals and serve food to community members, build a bench and shelter for the Gateway bus stop at Make a Difference Food Pantry and paint newly built picnic tables. In addition, they plan to have a baseball clinic with underprivileged youth.
