|FA Cougars begin baseball action today|
Franklin Academy's season-opening contest at Tensas Academy Monday was rained out.
Franklin played in a preseason tournament in Monroe last week, defeating River Oaks 8-5 and Riverfield, 4-1.
"We've got a mixture of seniors and young players," said Franklin coach Chris Sullivan. "We looked pretty good. We had a pitch limit on our pitchers, not letting any kid throw more than 30-to-35 pitches."
The Cougars will host the Franklin Academy Baseball Tournament beginning today (Tuesday).
Franklin faces Tallulah today at 6 p.m.
On Wednesday, River Oaks faces Prairie View at 1 p.m. Glenbrook takes on Riverfield at 3 p.m.
Riverdale meets Tensas at 5 p.m.
The Franklin-Tallulah winner faces Claiborne at 7 p.m.
Two loser's bracket games will be played beginning at 1 p.m. Thursday, followed by two winner's bracket games.
Three games will be played Friday beginning at 3 p.m., with the championship game slated for 7 p.m.
Each game will have a 90-minute time limit.
