MORGANTON, N.C. - A teen who is his high school's No. 1 basketball fan got to get out of the stands and onto the court Tuesday night.
Mitchell Greathouse attends every sporting event at Freedom High School in Morganton to cheer on the teams, but on that special night he got to put on a jersey and play alongside the basketball team.
T-ball starts Sat, March 11th @ Stanford Field which is located at Highland Recreation Center.
Time will be 10am. The season will start on this day Rain or Shine. If it does rain, we will meet in the Recreation Center to get everyone registered and their T-shirt ordered.
We look forward to seeing you then. And remember to watch this facebook group page for any last minute changes or additional event dates that may arise throughout the season.
