Playing for pancakes
What do pancakes and baseball have in common? Well, if you head over to TGI Friday's at the Hollymead Town Center for breakfast this Saturday, the pancakes you eat will help the Central Virginia Tigers, a 13-year old travel team made up of former all-stars from the Central, McIntire, Cove Creek and Northside Little League organizations. Operating on a shoe-string budget, the Tigers have managed to place 19th out of 87 teams in the State after four tournaments, placing second in two of them. Unfortunately, traveling across the State playing ball isn't cheap, and the Tigers are hoping the pancake breakfast fundraiser will keep their streak going. The breakfast is from 7am to 9:45am and costs only $5 for three pancakes, sausage or bacon, milk, coffee, or juice, and fruit.
