BELLE GLADE — The Glades Central baseball team will be hosting their “First Annual Alumni Game” in Belle Glade.

The baseball field is located at Glades Central High School.

The game will be hosted on Friday, Feb. 17, at 5:30 p.m. The event will provide music, free food and free drinks. You don’t want to miss out.

The baseball program is in the process of rebuilding and we want to give the community a glimpse of what this baseball team is made of.

This scrimmage against former Alumni’s is meant for fun but we also want to show the community that we are here to compete and to represent for our wonderful city.

Coach Leon and his assistant coaches, Juan Gonzalez and Norman Harrison have committed themselves in helping rebuild this baseball program. Coach Leon is excited for this upcoming season which starts on Feb. 23 at 6 p.m. vs. Palm Beach Lakes.

Coach Leon is a former Glades Central Alumni and a former Collegiate Baseball Player. His desire for his baseball team is for them to graduate from high school and to attend college. The wins will come but at the end of the day we have to make sure that we do our job and that is to get these young men into a college.

We are looking forward to seeing all of you there. This event is not for the coaches but for the baseball team.

Coach Leon is thankful for the team that he has. This is the first time that Glades Central has over 20 players on the Varsity Baseball Roster. Coach Leon has only three seniors, three juniors and the rest of the team are sophomores and freshmen.

Thank you for your support in advance. We hope to see all of you there!

Go Raiders!
