The Sweetwater High School baseball team held a brief ceremony on Thursday to honor Wes Bishop, the former director of physical therapy at Rolling Plains Memorial Hospital, who died last October.
Bishop’s wife Margaret came out to throw the first pitch prior to the Mustangs’ game against Pampa, before receiving a baseball autographed by members of the team.
This year’s annual Wood Bat Classic was renamed the Wes Bishop Wood Bat Classic, honoring a man who made numerous contributions to Sweetwater’s baseball program and was also a youth baseball coach here for 20 years.
