New this year!
The Mountain State Apple Harvest Festival is happy to announce the inaugural Fall Classic to recognize local baseball and softball student athletes for their success on the field and in the classroom, as well as other high school athletes during a special honor ceremony at the opening of the Fall Classic baseball tournament.
Taking place on Saturday, October 16, 2021, the event will consist of Junior teams made up 9th and 10th grade players and Senior teams made up of 11th and 12th grade players. The two Junior teams in each respective sport will play a 9-inning game at 11:00 with the Senior team games following at 3:00. Practices for each team will take place the week leading up to the event to limit interruption to the student athletes’ other commitments.
The Fall Classic will be held at the baseball complex at Musselman High School. The 2021 Apple Harvest Festival Sports Celebrity Darryl Strawberry will throw the first pitch and will also offer some encouraging remarks to area athletes from eastern panhandle schools who are in attendance.
Players who were interested in playing were required to have a final GPA of 3.0 or higher for the 2020-2021 school year. This opportunity was open to all high school students from Berkeley, Jefferson, Morgan, and Hampshire counties.
