Clovis East Baseball to host feeder programs for TRAC clash with Cougars

When the Clovis East Timberwolves host the Clovis High Cougars next Tuesday, March 12, they’ll have special guests in attendance.

The Timberwolves varsity baseball team has invited all Clovis East area feeder programs, including Babe Ruth baseball players to their Tri-River Athletic Conference matchup against the Cougars for free.

Youth players get a chance to wear their uniforms and join the varsity Timberwolves on the diamond for the pledge of allegiance. The feeder programs will take the field at six for the ceremony, before game time at 6:30 p.m.

“This is just a way to connect with the feeder programs in the Clovis East area and build continuity with our program,” Clovis East baseball head coach Ryan Smith said. “We want to teach the kids about work ethic and about the values and expectations for our program, but also have them come out and have some fun.”

Smith is hoping for about 40-50 kids to come out and experience the thrills of being a Timberwolves’ baseball player. While in full uniform, they will be able to stand on the same diamond many of them will represent in the future.

Coaches and principals will also be announced for the schools in attendance to give all individuals a moment of recognition for their continued work in promoting the sport within the community.

General admission prices, which include $5 for adults, $2 for students and seniors and children under five get in free.

Along with the action-packed matchup between two the TRAC’s best baseball teams, the Timberwolves will have food trucks, cotton candy, corndogs and many other fun treats for the fans.
