The Clippers traveled to Sandusky Saturday afternoon and scrimmaged Division 2 Celina and Division 2 Mansfield Senior. Columbiana split the double header but more importantly the young Clippers were able to finally get on a field and play real baseball. This was the first time all year that we have been able to hit on a field and there were a lot of positives that came out of the trip but at the same time there is a lot of work to do. As always, scrimmages are used to look at players in many different positions and to experience live game scenarios that we can continue to work on. This is a big week for Clipper baseball as the weather looks like it will be nice enough to be outside every day. Both the varsity and JV squads have two scrimmages scheduled and it will be a time for players to fine tune their skills before opening day on March 24th.
