Elementary students participate in annual ‘Ramona Classic’ softball game

News

Students at a local elementary school had the chance to batter up at a professional field on Friday as part of the annual Ramona Classic softball game.

The 10th annual event, held at EPCC’s Valle Verde stadium for the first time, aims to promote sports and active lifestyles to Ramona Elementary students.

“Keeping them in sports is very important because that keeps them out of trouble, and a lot kids have a lot of energy and need to release it,” a parent tells KTSM, “What better way of releasing it than playing a sport?”
