BLUEFIELD — Marla McKenna threw out the ceremonial first pitch to Bluefield Blue Jays fan favorite Nico Taylor at the Blue Jays vs. Bristol White Sox game Sunday afternoon at Bowen Field.

McKenna was in Bluefield to promote reading and baseball courtesy of the Bill Cole Auto Mall.

McKenna’s book, “Mom’s Big Catch,” tells a family-oriented story that teaches young readers the importance of family outings at a baseball game.

McKenna will be in Princeton this morning prior to the 11:05 a.m. start of the game with the same book, customized to suit young readers who are Princeton Rays’ fans.
