Kenny Roy Memorial Invite
THE 10TH ANNUAL KENNY ROY “Play for a Cure” Invitational Baseball Tournament was held Saturday and Sunday at the Berwick Civic Complex. The event brought together 7-8-year-old all-stars from Morgan City, Franklin, St. Mary Central, Patterson and Thibodaux, as well as the LA Sluggers, a 7-U travel team comprised of players from Berwick and Bayou Vista. Above are tournament champions St. Mary Central.

In the bottom photo, Dawson Richard, right in the photo, throws out the ceremonial first pitch to Kate Hicks. Both are grandchildren of Gloria Roy, Kenny’s mother. Richard, a member of the LA Sluggers, is the first member of the Roy family to participate in the event. Proceeds from this weekend’s event will go to the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life as well as St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
