St. Mary Parish Sheriff Mark Hebert presented proceed checks to junior and middle school baseball coaches and representatives last week. The funds were raised at the gates of baseball parks across the parish where St. Mary Parish Sheriff’s League games were played this season. The money is to be used by the schools for baseball equipment at the junior high and middle schools. Sheriff Hebert says, “The funds aren’t a lot, but we see the need and will do what we can for the parish.” Sheriff’ Hebert also thanked league director Paul Frost for his dedication to running the Sheriff’s League program. The league opened its first season in 2014, reintroducing recreational youth baseball to 13-15-year-old boys in Franklin before expanding the program throughout the parish. Sheriff Hebert says, “The Sheriff’s League gives the junior high age group the opportunity to advance and hone their skills before reaching the high school level.”
