WHS Baseball Moving Game To St. Stephens PDF Print

Watauga High baseball coach Pete Hardee has made the call.

Tonight's baseball game between the Pioneers and St. Stephens in the opening round of the Northwestern 3A/4A Conference tournament is being moved to St. Stephens because of poor drainage at Pioneer Field.
"I really don't want to move the game," Hardee said. "But I really don't have a choice. There's so much standing water on the field, that I couldn't get this thing ready to play by Friday. I don't want to hold the tournament up, so playing at St. Stephens is the only thing to do."
The Pioneers will have Jake Watts on the mound. Watts is 6-3 with a 3.20 earned-run-average. He's 1-0 against the Indians this season. St. Stephens will counter with Jacob Hoyle, who will be making his first start of the year. Hoyle, the Indians' closer, is 1-0 with three saves.
First pitch is set for 6 pm; our coverage begins at 5:30 pm on Oldies 100.7 FM.
