Superintendent Laurie Atkins and Assistant Superintendent (and Superintendent in Waiting) Dr. Katie Thomas wait for their chance to take the mound and throw the first pitch at the 2021 Cedartown and Rockmart baseball game. This was the final game of the 2020 season, cut short by COVID-19 lockdowns.

A special moment was celebrated on the pitcher’s mound this afternoon as the Cedartown Bulldogs and the Rockmart Yellow Jackets squared off in the second meeting of the rivals in the 2021 season.

Taking the field for the ceremonial first pitch this afternoon was Superintendent Laurie Atkins, and her soon-to-be replacement Assistant Superintendent Dr. Katie Thomas.

The pair threw to a Cedartown and Rockmart catcher at the same time before the game opened.

Check back after the game concludes for more on how the teams fared in their second meeting of the year.
