Baylie Spurlock

Connersville’s Baylie Spurlock gets a hit during Saturday’s opening day doubleheader for the varsity softball team against Greensburg. The Spartans fell in game one 3-2, but rebounded and won game two 13-3.

Opening day jitters can affect anyone ... in any sport.

While it might never be known for sure, one could point to a few Connersville miscues on the diamond in the first game of a softball doubleheader against Eastern Indiana Athletic Conference foe Greensburg at Spartan Field on Saturday, and make the assumption that it was, indeed, jitters that cost them.
