It’s been a LONG year for the Trimble Tech Baseball team as they didn’t get a chance to play last year due to Covid-19, but they haven’t missed a beat this year. They are currently sitting in a great position to come away with a District Championship after this week. Trimble Tech will host Arlington Heights Tuesday April 27th here at Yovani Gallardo Field at 7:00 pm so let’s pack the stands with GREEN! Then Friday April 30th the Bulldogs travel to Arlington Heights to finish out the regular season at 7:00 pm so we will need all the support they can get at Heights. If the Bulldogs win both of these two games they will claim the 7-5A District Championship. Come on out and support the Bulldogs in these last two regular season games!
