With a little guidance from her dad Reid, Georgia Kate Anderson tossed out the first pitch before the Southeast Bulloch softball team took on Burke County Thursday at the school in Brooklet.

Fans packed the stands in a show of support for the 12-year-old and has spent the past two months rehabilitating from a July ATV accident that left her critically injured. Also, all proceeds from the game were donated to Georgia Kate and her family.
