The YMCA held a regional competition in Major League Baseball's national Hit, Pitch and Run contest.
Twelve boys and six girls took part in the event last Wednesday, with six boys and six girls advancing to the sectional competition.
That will be held in Vandalia on May 19, and the YMCA needs volunteers to help make the event a success.
Those interested in volunteering should call the YMCA at 283-1258. Registration for the participants begins at 3:30 p.m.
