After a two-day tournament, the Delaware Longhorns of Middletown emerged victorious on July 6 at the First Annual Tricia Martin Baseball Tournament. The event was organized by Rowland George, who works for the Rockies Pro Scout Baseball Program, and his wife, Diane, the librarian at Milford Central Academy. The tournament raised money for the Tricia Martin Scholarship Fund, created in honor of the Milford Central Academy principal who died in a car accident in April. Dr. Martin’s daughter, Taryn, was also killed in the accident.

“We plan to make this an annual event,” Mr. George explained. “We wanted to do something where kids would benefit. Since my brother, Will, works for the Colorado Rockies and I worked for the Detroit Tigers, we thought a baseball tournament would be perfect.” The scholarship will be awarded to a graduating male or female athlete who hopes to teach or enter education. The student must display the positive attitude and confidence that friends and co-workers say that Dr. Martin exemplified.

A committee has been established to determine the scholarship recipient that includes the High School Athletic Director, the High School Guidance Office as well as Trisha Davis and Sheri Firch, both teachers and close friends of Dr. Martin. Mrs. Martin was instrumental in setting up the scholarship. In addition, Dr. Martin’s mother, Mrs. Garrow, will help choose the scholarship recipient.

“When we coach these kids, we understand that not all of them will end up in the pros,” George explained. “But we work hard to create a positive attitude and that was something that Tricia was all about.” George said that there are players from all over the state that play on the team, and five of them are from Milford.

The Delaware Longhorns won the final game on Sunday with a score of 4 to 3. The tournament began at 10 AM on Saturday, July 5 with play lasting until 6 PM. The tournament resumed at 10 AM on Sunday with the final game ending around 4 PM.

“I want to thank everyone who participated in this event,” Mr. George announced before presenting the winning team with their trophy. “Mrs. Garrow was very appreciative of the money raised for the scholarship in her daughter’s name.”

Mr. and Mrs. George hope to expand the tournament next year with more teams. They also hope to include softball as part of the tournament next year.
