While most people, myself included, are reluctant to put away their snow shovels some local baseball and softball squads took to the diamond on a chilly but dry Monday for season-openers.

Hoosic Valley trailing 2-0 entering the final frame scored three times, highlighted by Wiegert’s two-run single, taking a 3-2 advantage to the bottom of the inning.  The Witches responded with a two out rally, John Walsh tying things on an RBI single, and after a pair of walks Christian O’Brien singled in the game-winner for the Greenwich “W”.
