It is hard to believe it has been 714 days since the last time we had a high school baseball playoff game but the day is finally here! The DP faithful is out in full force in the opening round of competition and one of the spots of interest is Booster Field at Hillcrest HS. Tonight, the Region 1-AAAAA champions, Hillcrest HS, will play host to the runners-up in region IV-AAAAA, the Northwestern Trojans. These two traditional powers are no stranger to postseason play and had some tightly contested matchups in recent playoff battles.
