BATAVIA – Scotty McMurray, a member of the St. Mary’s team in the Albion Midget League, follows Jordan Holloway, a pitcher for the Batavia Muckdogs, onto the Dwyer Stadium field on Sunday. St. Mary’s was invited to be in the dugout before the game and follow the players on the field for introductions and the National Anthem.
