GRAVENHURST — Baseball’s back in town.
And the Muskoka Hornets were gamely swinging for the fence this weekend in a three-game scheduled home-stand as the Ontario Baseball Association (OBA) made its return.
It’s been years since provincial hardball playdowns have been played in Gravenhurst, says Hornets coach Cam Boyd.
The Hornets began their OBA playoff quest at the Muskoka Wharf Saturday morning and afternoon in a double-header against Waterdown and Beamsville.
And while the 11-U mosquito rep team was stung in a pair of home opening games, losing 11-1 to Waterdown Wolves yesterday morning and 17-6 to the Beamsville Stingers in the afternoon, they played well despite the lack of hits and loading the bases in Game 2.
Sunday morning they played host to Pelham, with the Hornets dropping that game 15-4 to the Pirates.
Now they go back to Beamsville this Saturday for an 11 a.m. game, then travel on to Pelham for a 3 p.m. start; before closing out the first round road trip Sunday back against the Waterdown Wolverines with the first pitch there at 11 a.m.
