The Braves baseball team will host the Lovett Lions from Atlanta in the first round of the GHSA State Playoffs beginning with a doubleheader tomorrow at the high school.

The first pitch for game one will happen at 4:00 p.m. and game two will immediately follow. In the event of a split in the two games a third and deciding series finale would begin Saturday at 1:00 p.m. also at home.

The Lions, who are coached by Lance Oubs, come into the series with an overall record of 15-11 and a region record of 12-3. They are the number three seed from Region 6-AA.

Coach Shane Lassetter and his Braves enter the series as the Region 5-AA number two seed and sport an overall record of 13-13 with a region record of 11-3.

Tickets prices for each day are $7 each as mandated by the GHSA. Patrons and fans are advised to arrive early to support the Braves in what should be an exciting series of baseball.
