Oneida County Hosts Inaugural High School Baseball Classic

Gino Geruntino, WIBX

Utica, NY (WIBX) – With prom season approaching, Oneida County is kicking off its STOP DWI Teen Traffic Safety Education Program in a big way.

This Friday and Saturday, ten local high school baseball teams are taking part in the inaugural High School Baseball Classic at Murnane Field, in Utica.

In addition to seeing some great baseball, representatives from the Insight House, Oneida-Herkimer-Madison BOCES and the New York State Police will be on hand to educate spectators about the consequences of bad decisions.

For younger children, the Oneida County Sheriff’s Office is providing free finger printing and photo  ID cards in conjunction with the SAFE CHILD program.

Bob Roth, Director of the Oneida County Youth Bureau, said although many people will show up to see the games, there are plenty of educational opportunities, as well.

“We’re excited about this event,” Roth said. “We think it’s going to be a great event. Obviously, we’re dependent upon the weather, but we want people to be there. It’s a free event, it’s an educational event. Please take advantage of what Oneida County is trying to offer its residents.”

Next year, the Youth Bureau hopes to hold the event at DeLutis Field, in Rome.

In the case of a rain-out on Friday, those games will be pushed back until Saturday morning. If the rain continues to fall on Saturday, the Baseball Classic will be called off.

Saturday, April 21st:
