Having swept Reedy last week in the bi-district series, the baseball team will take on Highland Park in the area round of the tournament, and they’ll be doing it in a much bigger ballyard tonight at 7:30 p.m. at Globe Life Park in Arlington, home of the Texas Rangers. The second game of the series and the tentative third game, will take place tomorrow, also at Globe Life Park.

According to head coach Jason Wilson, the idea to play the series on this big of a stage was the Rangers’.

“The Rangers reached out to us and Highland Park because they were interested in putting together some marquee-type series this week,” Wilson said. “They saw that Lovejoy was playing Highland Park, and they thought it would be a good matchup to host out there.”

Senior Jake Terwilliger said he is excited to be playing on a major league diamond, but also mindful of where his and his team’s focus needs to be.

“It’s a really cool experience, but I think the main thing we need to realize that it’s the same dimensions as any other ballpark,” Terwilliger said. “Yeah, it’s a lot bigger, but we still got to play our game and do what we do. It’s gonna be a really cool experience for all of us.”

As for the weekend’s competition, Wilson said he is confident that his team is ready for the challenge.

“We played really well the last two games last week,” Terwilliger said. “It’s a tough matchup this week, but we’re ready for it.”
