Baseball Season Is Here

It has been almost a year since I have shot baseball. I remember that I was shooting a weekend tournament at Opelika High School and after one of the first games, the tournament was called because of covid-19. This last Saturday, Baseball is back. Congratulations to Opelika for winning their 2 games over the weekend.

Great to be able to shoot baseball again.

AHSAA Cancels Season For Remainder of School Year

As the weekend of the East Alabama Baseball Classic was wrapping up, everyone knew the season was in question as the Coronavirus was making the news. On March 27 with conjunction with the Governor directive, all sports were suspended for the remainder of the school season. In a media release, AHSAA Executive Director Steve Savarese said, “Like thousands of others, I am deeply saddened and disappointed that our schools have closed, and spring sports will not have an opportunity to finish their seasons.  Even more so, I am disheartened for all student-athletes, contest officials, their coaches, families, student bodies, fans, communities, and especially our seniors.  We are facing an unprecedented health crisis, but I am prayerful that the steps we are taking now within our schools and across our nation will enable all those affected to return to a sense of normalcy sooner than later.”

My heart goes out to all the players and especially the seniors. God Bless, practice social distancing and stay well.
