MILTON — Athletes on the Girls Softball and Boys Baseball teams are getting warmed up for the upcoming spring season. Both teams practiced last Thursday and will continue to practice everyday this week.
Softball and Baseball will play for the first time in nearly two years this Saturday, April 17 at home at Milton High School.
At 11 a.m., Softball will step up to the plate against Mount Mansfield Union. The team will also recognize its seniors.
Simultaneously, Baseball will step from the dugout at 11 a.m. to take on MMU.
To the thrill of parents and peers, spectators will be allowed to attend competition. Social distancing must occur between households, and the Agency of Education recommends interactions between spectators and participants be minimized before, during and after events.
Attendance cannot exceed the state's current 150-person capacity for outdoor events. Milton Athletic Director Marcel Choquette said the athletic department is currently working on finalizing guidelines and procedures for spectators.
