Legion teams finish 2-2 in opening games

Home opener against Cozad this Sunday at Campbell Park

    The crack of the bat returned to life the past week as baseball games were given the green light amid state COVID-19 health directives.
    Imperial’s junior and senior Legion teams opened play on the first day allowed, last Thursday, with a 2-0 finish for the juniors in Hershey.
    Imperial returned to the field Sunday in Holdrege for a junior/senior double-header, when Holdrege picked up both wins on late scores.
    Imperial has three games this week ahead of Sunday’s home opener at Campbell field.
    The junior/senior double-header here Sunday with Cozad has a 12 noon start time for the junior game. The seniors will follow at 2:30 p.m.
    Leading up to Sunday’s games at home are double-headers all on the road.
    After playing Tuesday in Hershey against Overton, the teams travel to Ogallala today (Thursday) for junior/senior games starting at 4:30 p.m.
