Despite the rash of school closings, several area baseball teams will get one last game in on Friday before things are shutdown for at least one week, and two weeks for others.
One matchup is a key Region 7-3A tilt between No. 1 North Hall and Greater Atlanta Christian at Lynn Cottrell Field. Another region battle involves Banks County traveling to Oglethorpe County for a doubleheader in Region 8-2A action.
Flowery Branch and West Hall scheduled an impromptu meeting at West Hall at 6 p.m. Friday after both of their regularly scheduled games were called off.
Below is the schedule for teams in action on Friday and the list of postponed games.
(First pitch scheduled for 5:55 p.m. for all games unless otherwise noted. Games listed by time and in alphabetical order by visiting team.)
