Cherokee grocers to square off on diamond

Thursday, August 6, 2009

'Rumble on the River' brings things full circle on Aug. 11

On Tuesday, August 11, the local Hy-Vee and Fareway Grocery stores invite everyone to come to the Wescott Ball fields south of town "to watch your favorite grocers slug it out on the (softball) diamond to see who's really got it at the plate."

In game one, at 6:30 p.m., the Hy-Vee Grocery staff will take on the Fareway staff. Game two will pit Hy-Vee Grocery against the Hy-Vee Warehouse. Then in a third game, well, it's anybody's guess - maybe whoever is left standing???

There will also be a "Home Run Derby" for the men and women, with a $5 entry fee, and a payout to the first and second place winners.
