Bishop Union Baseball and Softball take down Frazier

Friday’s High Desert league home opening ball games began with sunshine and closed with wind and rain.  Bishop Union High School’s baseball and softball teams excelled in all weather conditions sweeping Frazier Mt.  The varsity boys and junior varsity girls put their games out of reach early with the varsity girls winning in walk off fashion.  The JV boys had the day off as Frazier Mt is not fielding a JV squad.
This week is a big one for the Broncos as they continue their home stand hosting rival Kern Valley Tuesday and Rosamond Friday.  The Varsity boys games are broadcast live on AM 1230 KBOV and streamed live here through the listen live link.

Coaches Comments. “This was a true team effort with only 9 available players. The Broncos did an outstanding job with a very good offensive team and only 1 defensive error. Offensively we stepped up with 16 hits and many extra bases. We are now 8-8 overall and 3-0 in league play. Next up is rival Kern Valley at home on Tuesday.”   Coach Stacy Van Nest
