A few times each year I get to watch Sweetwaterâ€™s high school baseball and softball teams play a common opponent on the same day. Iâ€™ve been doing it for over 15 years, in fact.
Rarely, however, in all that time have both of the SHS teams played more en-tertaining games the same day than they did at Wylie on Tuesday.
