The annual Dick Finn Old-Timers Game will take place Wednesday, July 17, at Meldrim Field in Cortland starting at 6 p.m.
All former fastpitch softball players from the Cortland, Ithaca, Pioneer and Church Leagues are invited to attend and, if possible, play in the game in memory of Finn, a long-time fastpitch standout locally.
The Old-Timers squad will face a roster of stars from the current Cortland Men’s Fastpitch League.
