Willistonian to be pro baseball player for a day

He will sign a professional baseball contract for one day next to the signature of legendary Oakland A’s General Manager Billy Beane.

He will take batting practice Friday with the Vermont Lake Monsters before their home game Friday.

All this and much more coming up for 12-year-old Storm Rushford of Williston, one of nine boys and girls to be named members of the 2014 Little Lake Monsters Community All-Stars.

To gain the prizes to see what life is like for one day as a professional baseball player, the nine youngsters had to answer three questions about sportsmanship, living healthy lifestyles and community.

In addition to the contracts and batting practice, the nine will each get a custom jersey and cap, a limo ride to Centennial Field and an inning in the dugout during the game plus more.

The winners are from around Vermont and northern New York.
