Weekly Update

The Butler Bears were finally able to get all regularly scheduled games in last week for the first time this season, and made up a Varsity game that was rained out earlier in the year.  Hopefully spring has arrived and will stick around; minus the rain....

The Varsity Bears are 7-5 on the season and have truly been Jekyll and Hyde thus far in 2018.  They have positioned themselves nicely in District play and are 2-0 with wins over DeSales and Doss but have had some disappointing losses as well.  The Varsity picked up nice wins over Meade Co and Moore in addition to the district games but have dropped a couple of heart-breakers to Southern and Ballard in the process.  The Varsity Bears are back in action with another District game Tuesday at Iroquois and then return home Thur-Sat as they play host in the L.I.T. this weekend.

The JV Bears are off to a hot start to the season even with a couple of set-backs this past week.  This weekend they picked up a nice win against rival PRP to go along with another win over Manual and North Oldham.  The JV Bears are 6-2-1 on the season and will return to action tomorrow as they play host to St. Xavier at Milan Perpich Field.  First pitch is set for 5:00 p.m.

The Freshman Bears have really set the 2018 season on fire with their only blemish coming against North Oldham's JV team.  Other than that the Freshman have taken care of business against teams from all across town including a 7-0 victory over rival PRP.  The Freshman Bears will return to action with the JV for a Double-header at Milan Perpich Field tomorrow.  First pitch is set for 7:30 p.m.

Season Update

The weather has not made playing baseball easy so far this spring, but games have been played on all levels.  Over the past three weeks the Bears have been able to get a handful of games in for each team. 

As of today the Varsity Bears have a record of 3-2.  They have accumulated wins over North Bullitt, E-Town, and Paducah Tilghman, while falling to Eastern and Central Hardin.  The JV and Freshman teams for the Bears have not surrendered a loss to date.  The JV have a tie with Eastern but redeemed that with a win over the Eagles at the end of last week, as well as, getting wins against South Oldham and Manual.  That brings their record to 3-0-1.  Our Freshman Bears have an unblemished record of 4-0 with wins against Bullitt Central, South Oldham, Manual, and Fairdale.

All levels will be back in action this week.  The Varsity host district rival DeSales tomorrow at Milan Perpich Field at 5:00 p.m. and the JV and F will host a Double-header Wednesday against the Crimsons of Manual starting at 5:00 p.m.  We look forward to seeing everyone at the ball park this week!
