For over 40 years, the baseball game in The Sticks on Easter was a Charlton County tradition. That all changed in the early 2000s when local officials say the event got out of hand and a shooting occurred in what is now Chatman-Mobley Park.
It’s been more than 10 years since the last Easter ballgame, although nearly every year a request has been made to the Charlton County Commission to hold the event in the park. Up until this year, the request has been denied and it appeared it would be again.
