The boys of summer

COVID-19 may have robbed them of their final season of high school baseball, but the Mathews High School seniors got one last time on the diamond Tuesday night. They formed a combined team with Middlesex seniors, taking on a team from King William, Lancaster and West Point high schools at the Deltaville Ballpark. The KW/Lancaster/WP team won, 6-4, but in the end the final score wasn’t really that important. The highlight of the night was near the end; only five innings had been played, but the teams had hit the cutoff time of 10 p.m. Initially, the umpires called the game as complete, but it felt like a rock concert with the crowd, players and coaches cheering for one more inning. In the end, the umps relented and let the game go on, prompting the biggest cheer of the night. MHS seniors suiting up one last time in the blue and gold were, from left, Zach Dehoux, Patrick Blake, Christian Williams, Braden Hunley, Chase Lewis, Cole Huff and Logan Strigle.
