Baseball final set for Saturday
The 12th Region baseball championship is scheduled to be played Saturday even though Mercer County won’t be participating.
The game between West Jessamine and Boyle County will be played not tonight, but at noon Saturday at Boyle. It was originally going to be on Saturday only if Mercer was playing because of that school’s graduation tonight, but Boyle officials set the game for Saturday before Thursday’s semifinals.
Athletic director Jim Spears said West Jessamine coach Jody Hamilton asked for the date to be set before his team’s game against Danville so he could set his pitching rotation.
Spears said if the game is rained out Saturday, it will be played Sunday afternoon, probably around 2 p.m.
The 12th Region softball final will go on tonight at Pulaski County, where Garrard County and Pulaski play a rematch of a 2007 regional semifinal, which Garrard won 10-1.
The baseball title game is a rematch of an April 12 game at Boyle which West Jessamine won 5-3.
