The Columbia Fireflies are launching the Baseball Legends Creativity Contest. The contest encourages children from kindergarten through 12th grade to learn more about Camden native and baseball legend Larry Doby and the impact he had on the game of baseball, and then creatively express how Doby’s story has encouraged them to overcome challenges they may face in life.
