Ballpark food plates will be sold at the picnic starting at 12:30 p.m. Beaty will be available until 2 p.m. to take pictures and sign autographs. The camp will begin at 2 p.m. with boys and girls from ages 5-18 welcome to participate. The cost is $30 pre-registration and $35 the day of per child.

“We had such an awesome time in 2019 hanging out with everyone in the community and raising money to put right back where we grew up,” Matt Beaty said. “We’re looking forward to seeing everyone after a long couple of years and having an even bigger turn out.”
In 2019, the weekend raised around $25,000 for the Matt Beaty Fund. In 2020, the fund sent out $11,500 worth of checks to sports programs across Weakley County.
The scholarship is still in the works but will soon be open to Weakley County student-athletes going to play at the next level.
The Beatys are looking for sponsorships and silent auction items, along with registration sign-ups. Sponsorships range from $150-$500.
