Tolland County Poetry Champion "Austin" Timothy West of Rockville High School is scheduled to pitch Thursday afternoon in the Class L State Championship baseball game against Fairfield.
He will not be attending the 4 p.m. workshop.
If Austin somehow makes it to the dinner, he promises to bring extra dirt. Check with Rockville parents for final score.
Austin's Mom will be attending the dinner, along with his teacher, Victoria Nordlund [last year's keynote speaker].
ACE POET ON THE MOUND
