Thank you BTBA families for making Field clean up a success!

Thanks to everyone who came out and helped clean up Hrbek and Dred Scott Fields. The fields look great and we are all ready to kick off the season opener today and PLAY BALL!!!

Come out and support our high schools and watch Kennedy vs Jefferson at Red haddox field at 7pm!

Let's try and get as many BTBA players and parents to come out and support our high schools as possible!  It's always a good match up to watch if your traveling team doesn't have a game.
