Weekly spaghetti dinner supports baseball Series

TAYLOR — The Perfect Pitcher Sports Club,12900 Beech Daly just north of Northline Road, will hold $5 weekly all-you-can-eat spaghetti dinners from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. every Wednesday to raise money for the Junior League World Series.


Chip Pepitone, the club’s disc jockey and kitchen manager, said the business was seeking to get more involved in the community and decided the Junior League World Series was a perfect candidate for fundraising efforts.


The series features the best teams of 13- and 14-year-olds from around the world. It was founded in 1981 in Taylor and has been played at Heritage Park ever since. It’s the big brother of the Little League World Series for 12-year-olds, played in Williamsport, Pa. The 29th annual Junior League World Series is scheduled for Aug. 16 through 22.


Pepitone said he is a friend and neighbor of Greg Bzura, World Series founder and director, so he knows all about what the international tournament means to the city and to worldwide baseball.


Sponsorships and donations, plus volunteer efforts, pay for all costs associated with the series.


“I really am confident that we can raise some funds for the Junior League World Series,” said Pepitone, aka DJ Gemini.


“That’s why I want to do it every week so we continue to raise money.”


The spaghetti dinners will include a slice of garlic toast. The sports bar features a full menu. Beverages are extra.
