Heath begins best-of-3 baseball playoff series tonight vs. Waxahachie

HEATH – After demolishing Dallas Hillcrest last Saturday, 16-3 and 13-0, the Heath Hawks baseball team begins a best-of-three game playoff series at home against Waxahachie tonight at 7:30 pm.

Slugging first baseman and pitcher Jake Thompson is expected to be on the mound to start for the Hawks.

Game two of the series is at Richards Park in Waxahachie Saturday at 1 pm. If necessary, game three will take place thirty minutes after the second game.

If Heath wins the series against Waxahachie, they will then play the winner of the Mesquite Poteet (29-6) vs. Frisco Wakeland series for the Area Region II championship.

Wakeland eliminated Heath rival and District 10-4A co-champion Highland Park (32-6) Saturday by beating the Scots in the third game of their series, 8-6. Poteet swept Texarkana Texas (25-8) in two games.
