First pitch is 4 pm. Even though the temperatures may not heat up, the Bears season will with three games very quickly to start off their season. On Monday, April 1st the Bears travel to Northeast, and on April 5th return home to take on Cochranton.

The Yellowjackets come into Friday’s non-conference game with a win under their belt, and are lead by Todd and Blake Essman.
