The 6th annual Savannah Fellowship of Christian Athletes All-Star Baseball Classic is set for Monday, June 14 at Grayson Stadium in Savannah. First pitch between the County team and the City team is slated for 6:30 p.m. and the City squad will be the designated home team.

 

Since 1954, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes has been challenging coaches and athletes on the professional, college, high school, junior high, and youth levels to use the powerful medium of athletics to impact the world for Jesus Christ,” reads the Association’s website. “FCA focuses on serving local communities by equipping, empowering, and encouraging people to make a difference for Christ.”

 

Richmond Hill’s Scott Strickland will be the head coach for the City team while The Habersham School’s Tim Rowland coaches the county team.

 

Players from around Savannah and Chatham County -- at both public and private schools -- are selected to the game annually and assigned to teams based on their school’s location. City players this year were chosen from the following schools: Islands, St. Andrew’s, Windsor Forest, Memorial Day, Benedictine, Calvary Day, Habersham School and Jenkins.

 

County team members come from Richmond Hill High School, Savannah Christian, Effingham, South Effingham, Bryan County, New Hampstead and Coastal Homeschool. 

 

Full rosters are listed below. For more information about the FCA, the game and its history, visit Savannah Area FCA on Facebook or at the web address, www.savfca.org. Purchase tickets in advance at https://fca.regfox.com/2021gaallstarclassic
