M.O.T. Big Ball Marathon
September 3, 2010 @ 12:00 am
The goal of the Big Ball Marathon is to raise money to assist individuals, families in need, charities and organizations in the Middletown / Odessa / Townsend (M.O.T.) area. The Big Ball Marathon Committee is committed to supporting and improving the lives of those in need in the M.O.T. community.
They meet the goal each year with the help of volunteers, a great deal of community support and corporate sponsorship who, together, make the 24-hour Big Ball (softball) marathon on Labor Day weekend a huge success. The popular event is much more than 24 hours of softball, though. It is 24 hours of fun!
Thousands of people from the community and surrounding areas come out to support the 24-hour event. They come at all hours to watch the games, cheer the players on, enjoy the delicious concessions, enjoy pony rides, carnival games, dance to the music, and just to be part of the camaraderie of this magnificent event.
