Festus, Potosi meet in Babe Ruth Baseball on KJFF

Babe Ruth Baseball is in full swing around the Parkland, and another match-up comes to Washington County Thursday.

The Festus 253 Diamond Club takes on the Potosi Pirates on KJFF.

Festus is off to a 3-3 start to the season after splitting games against Washington 218 last night.

Head coach Zac Bone says, as opposed to its normal dominant start, 253 is still trying to find its footing.

The Potosi Pirates have started the 2020 summer seasons 6-2.

Head coach Jacob Swain says the lineup is still trying get settled, meaning pitching needs to remain a strength.

Originally scheduled as a doubleheader, there will be just one game Thursday.

As American Legion opponents last year, Festus won both games against Potosi.

Coverage for Thursday evening’s matchup starts with the Flieg’s Equipment Pregame Show at 7:15 on AM 1400 KJFF.
