Head Baseball Coach Pat Bailey and Robbins are both excited about the new season and invite the public to join them at Lion Field on Friday and Saturday.
“We are going to have all our teams out there showing their stuff during the first practice and we want the Lion fans out there supporting us like they did the football teams,” Bailey said.
“It is going to be a lot of fun,” Robbins said. “We are looking forward to a great season and can’t wait to get going.”
