Baseball Cats to Play at Progressive Field on Friday

Just as it brought back the Cleveland Indians to downtown Cleveland on Opening Day, spring will beckon the Saint Ignatius baseball team to Progressive Field.

The baseball Wildcats will play their annual contest at the corner of Carnegie and Ontario on Friday, April 21, facing off against the Avon Lake Shoremen. First pitch is slated for 5:30 p.m.

The Wildcats, currently 3-6, face a busy week of baseball, playing five games and five days. However, the game at Progressive Field is sure to be a highlight. The Baseball Cats enjoyed the experience last season despite dropping a narrow 5-4 decision to Brecksville-Broadview Heights.

According to the Weather Channel, Mother Nature appears willing to cooperate for the Hardball Classic. The weather forecast currently predicts temperatures in the mid-50s with sunny skies.

Tickets are available in advance in the Athletic Department for $5. Tickets will also be available at the gate on gameday.

We hope to see you at Progressive Field on Friday!
