Sure the temperature was in the mid-40s and most everybody couldn’t feel their fingers, but it was still a (almost) perfect day to play baseball outdoors March 22 at Mark Stewart Field in Beavercreek.

BEAVERCREEK — While a scheduled March 22 scrimmage with Kenton Ridge may have not happened, the Beavercreek High School baseball team took the opportunity to play an intrasquad game on the Mark Stewart Baseball Field on a brisk 40-degree day.

Area high school teams are gearing up for the 2019 high school Spring sports seasons, most of which get under way this weekend.

Some area teams, like Xenia and Greeneview, will begin their high school baseball seasons on Saturday. The Rams are scheduled to play on Xenia’s home field at 11 a.m. Saturday, March 23 for the season opener for both schools.

Long before Beavercreek’s players lost feeling in their fingers from Friday’s cold, the team was already scheduled to open its season a bit closer to the equator March 28-30 at the Southern Warrior Classic baseball tournament in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. The Beavers are making their first appearance in the annual season opening tournament. More than 80 teams, from nine states as far away as New Mexico, are scheduled to appear.

Beavercreek’s first Ohio scheduled contest will take place April 1 when the Beavers take on Greater Western Ohio Conference foe Fairmont, in Kettering.

Hopefully it’ll be a bit warmer by then.
