Haley of Farmville is proud to participate in a sport that brings so many smiles to kids and families in Farmville,” said Christopher Call, general manager for Haley of Farmville in a press release. “We believe that in play, there are possibilities and supports the spirit of teamwork that baseball instills in its players.”
