High school Baseball
Seven teams will be in contention for the annual Maverick Baseball Classic this week in Pearsall.
The event proved to be the final sporting contest a year ago as the COVID-19 pandemic hit nationwide, forcing school closures in Texas over the Spring Break holiday.
“The pandemic really put a strain on all of us this past year and for our baseball program it was tough,” PHS Head Coach Ray Talamantes said. “We were not really able to get much work in during the summer or fall but since our season has begun we have really tried to push through and hopefully get a full season in.
“I guess the biggest emphasis we try to make right now is to make each day count because as we found out last year, it can be taken from us in a heartbeat. We tell the boys that we can’t take anything for granted at this point. All we can do is continue to work day-in and day-out and strive to make ourselves better and compete all season long.”
Pearsall, Pleasanton, Lytle, Crystal City, Dilley, Natalia and Boerne will participate in the event, which is slated for Thursday, March 11 to Saturday, March 13.
