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.

Congratulations to OHS Senior Tykell Jones for signing a soccer scholarship to Andrew College.
I have not had a chance to make all the Softball, Baseball, & Soccer games this year. I went to the Senior recognition night before Opelika played Auburn yesterday. It hit me that the season is almost over and the Football spring game will be next month. Spring is always the busiest time for High School Sports to me because teams may play several games in one week. Oh, by the way, OHS will have a track meet in Opelika on April 20th.
You know that summer is almost here as the youth baseball leagues start firing up. Today is opening day for both Miracle League of East AL and Opelika Dixie Youth. Please head out to West Ridge Park to support these kids. Most play will be between somewhere between 9 am – 3 pm today (3/30)
