High school baseball returns to Toyota Field this month
High school baseball is back at Toyota Field. The home of the Trash Pandas minor league baseball in Madison will host 13 games this month featuring schools from across the Tennessee Valley, before concluding with one more local high school game in late April.
The first high school gams began last night with a doubleheader — New Hope vs. Priceville, and Athens vs. Grissom.
