De Leon opens three games series against Albany Friday

If you are looking for a premier high school baseball series to take in this weekend, you might consider venturing over to Graham tomorrow afternoon for game one of DeLeon’s best-of-three games series against Albany.

Both teams carry glittering 2018 season records with the Bearcats at 21-2 on the year and a perfect 14-0 in District 7-2A while Albany also had a complete league slate at 10-0 and 17-3-3 on the year.

Rather than do a home-and-home series the team will first play in Graham at 4 pm Friday and then will travel to Graford for Saturday’s game-two matchup. Saturday’s game is scheduled for an 11 am start and if a game three is needed it will follow 30 minutes after the second game.
