GROVE - The date for the 2020 alumni baseball game has been set.

On Friday, April 24, after the rivalry game between Grove and Jay, the dynamos of the diamond will return to Jim Beauchamp Field.

The baseball districts for the 2020 season have split Grove and Jay into two different districts for the next few years, which meant the two teams would not play each other for two years. But what would a baseball season be without a game between the long-time rivals?

The alumni of baseball and the coaching staff got together and have created an event that will benefit both teams and their alumni for the next two years: first the high school teams will play, followed by Grove's alumni team playing the Jay alumni team. The 2020 games will be hosted in Grove, while the 2021 games will be played in Jay.

The games will be played on Saturday, April 24 at Jim Beauchamp Field in Grove. The high school game will be played at 4 p.m. followed by the alumni game at 7 p.m.
