Baseball rivals will meet on Monday at Clemmy Holmes Field when the Nebraska City Pioneers host Beatrice for a 5 p.m. first pitch.
Both teams enter Monday’s contest looking to spark some late season momentum. Beatrice has a record of 2-7, while the Pioneers have a mark of 3-9.
The regular season comes to an end for Nebraska City on the second day of May.
Victories are always impactful in terms of determining district seeding. That is especially true for baseball since districts fields are appointed and host sites are determined by wild card point standings.
Just as important as wins, both Beatrice and Nebraska City will be looking to play consecutive games without interruption from the weather.
Nebraska City’s game at Plattsmouth Thursday was postponed due to weather. The Thursday game is Nebraska City’s seventh game that was postponed or cancelled due to weather.
