A local eight-year-old girl had the opportunity of a lifetime as a New York Yankees fan.
Hannah Herrick of Rotterdam participated in the semi-final round of the MLB Pitch, Hit, and Run competition over the weekend. Herrick had advanced through multiple rounds in New York before reaching the round at Yankee Stadium, which could earn her a trip to Citi Field during All-Star Weekend and the championship round.
In order to reach the championship round at Citi Field, competitors had to finish 1st in their age group. Hannah did not finish first in her age group. She finished 2nd. However, she and her family said they had a great time at Yankee Stadium for the competition.
