Play ball!

In the first game of the season, the Bridgeport Bulldogs 4-6 baseball team took to the local field to take on the visiting Bayard Tigers. The bright sun made for a warm night, and the crowd was happy to be out, cheering on the youngsters. It was not enough for our boys, though, and Bayard ran away with the game, ending it 14-0. There is plenty of T-balll, youth pitch, Junior and Senior baseball left this season with the Bombers taking to the field in Bridgeport tonight at 5:00 and 7:30 p.m. against Sidney. Come on out and root for the home team.
