NCS baseball heads back to the Coliseum

Good news for all you North Coast Section baseball enthusiasts out there. NCS associate commissioner Karen Smith told me today that the NCS Baseball Championships will be held at the Oakland (or O.Co, if you prefer) Coliseum this year on June 2. And, it won’t be just one game. It’ll be four games! Start times will be 10, 1, 4 and 7.

Divisions have not been set yet, but four games in the Coliseum is much better than two. I’m looking forward to it!
