itin The countdown to the 2011 season has begun.  The Cuyahoga River Conference games have been finalized and the independent portion of the schedule is taking shape.  Double-headers with Orange, Cleveland Heights, Bedford, and North Ridgeville are a big part of the season.  We also have single games versus Elyria, Mayfield, Eastlake North, Firelands, and our home-opener versus Cleveland John Hay are apart of our schedule.  We even have a couple of scrimmages set.

Many of our players are currently participating in fall baseball leagues and preparing for our off-season weight and conditioning program.  Keep an eye on the calendar at the bottom of the page for updates on the upcoming season along with other team related events.
