Once again, Sweetwater is facing a bi-district rematch to begin the playoffs.
The Mustang baseball team will play Burkburnett for the second straight year, and the teams have scheduled the opening game of their best-of-3 series for 4 p.m. today at Abilene Christian University.
After today’s contest, the series moves to Iowa Park for Game 2 — and possibly Game 3 — starting at 4 p.m. Friday. If the teams are tied 1-1, Game 3 will begin 30 minutes after Game 2 ends.
In 2017, Sweetwater advanced by defeating Burkburnett 2-1 in a one-game playoff. Last week, Sweetwater’s softball team went to Hawley for a best-of-3 bi-district rematch vs. Graham, losing in three games.
