The All-Star Little League State Championship begins this weekend in Charlottesville. The tournament would not be possible without the help of several volunteers.
Tom Barber and Butch Follett combine for 32 years of service behind the plate. Their jobs are one-hundred percent volunteer. They also have to pay for their own travel expenses and uniforms, which can run up to 300 dollars. Follett and Barber say the work is work the price.
