Ben Maddox Memorial Golf Tournament Set for Saturday, Oct. 13
Forest - The Lynchburg Hornets 10-and-under travel baseball team will host the 2nd-annual Ben Maddox Memorial Golf Tournament Saturday at London Downs.
It's a noon start, you still have time to sign up. The tournament is to honor the life of former Brookville player Ben Maddox, who died in a traffic accident in '99, and to promote safety through the use of seat belts. Part of the proceeds will go to the organization "Safe Kids."
Ken Maddox, BEN'S FATHER, said "Ben would be here today very likely if he had had a seat belt on when that car went off the road. And every year more and more and more, it just happens. Kids aren't wearing seat belts it seems, some of the adults aren't wearing seat belts. But the statistics are there, this organization is hopefully gonna try and promote awareness."
