Saints, Bears prepare for District baseball championship games

Published On: May 28 2014 10:06:17 PM CDT

Berks Catholic and Boyertown will both play for a District championship on Thursday.

The Berks Catholic and Boyertown baseball teams will play for their respective District crowns on Thursday. The Saints will take on Susquenita in the District III-AA final. The Bears will face off with Methacton or Conestoga in the District I-AAAA final.

The Berks Catholic baseball team suffered a one run loss in the county championship earlier this season. But instead of letting the feeling linger, the Saints have taken it out on their District III bracket and find themselves once again with a chance to win a title.

The chance to claim and even bigger title has totally altered the team's focus heading into Thursday's game at Santander Stadium in York.

Not to mention, the Saints have the opportunity to make a little history and avenge a loss in this same game two years ago. B.C. is going for it's first District title in program history.

Berks County will also be represented in Thursday's District I baseball championship. Boyertown has made a dominant run through the tournament and will face either Conestoga or Methacton in Thursday's final.

With the Bears, it's been a pretty simple formula of dominant pitching and timely hitting.

Highlighted by a weather-shortened no-hitter from Tyler Bauman on Tuesday, Boyertown has shutout all three of its District opponents. That's 19 innings of goose eggs.

It's been an impressive run by the Bears, one that Brandon Griesemer would love to continue on Thursday.
