ONEIDA COUNTY, N.Y. -- Prom and graduation seasons are just around the corner. That is why Oneida County is holding Teen Safety and Education Week. They're hoping a series of events the week of April 22 will help teens make good decisions.

The week is highlighted by the 3rd annual Baseball Classic.

Ten high school teams will be competing in this two day event.

There will also be a lot of information on topics including distracted and drunk driving, concussions and head injuries, and cyberbullying.

Anthony Picente, (R) Oneida County Executive said, "Our goal is to keep our teens safe, keep them from making bad choices, keep them from out of harm's way and to really let them know that there are services, there are people, there are community leaders, and organizations and more importantly the schools that they attend are there to help them."

The Baseball Classic will be held on April 25 and 26 at Murnane Field in Utica.
