Petersburg High School’s baseball teams are hosting Juneau Douglas here at home. Last weekend the teams traveled to Ketchikan to play there. As Angela Denning reports, the JV and Varsity teams lost all five of their games.

At the ball field, players are warming up for practice. Some are paired up playing catch and others are tossing the ball to each other in a drill to cover second base.

The players lost all five of their games in Ketchikan—two JV games and three varsity games. The games were cut short for the ten point rule.
