On Tuesday we turned the calendar and the new month of May came in with warm temperatures and sunny skies.  While all teams enjoyed yesterday’s beautiful weather, the lineups of Hoosic Valley and Saratoga Catholic baseball teams reveled in it staging an offensive back and forth that saw 36 hits and 31 runs combined before the Valley prevailed with the 17-14 “W”.

Here’s a closer look at that contest along with the rest of the action from a Wasaren Tuesday.
