Cougar Baseball had its season opening day on Saturday, March 10, at the Grayson County High School baseball field. The first regular home game of the season, featuring both Varisity and Junior Varsity, is scheduled for Monday, March 19 at 5:30 p.m.

Opening Day began at 10:30 a.m., with a scrimmage game against the Franklin-Simpson Wildcats at noon, giving the Cougars a chance to get warmed up and show off some of their skills before the regular season games get started.

Before and during the scrimmage game, kids enjoyed themselves,
