The Fireflies have teamed up with local high school baseball programs to compete in a series of games at Columbia’s Segra Park in March and April.
The first in the series -- a doubleheader on Saturday, March 9 -- will feature Wren vs. Lexington and Mauldin vs. Blythewood.
“We are excited to have the chance to bring these schools to Segra Park,” John Katz, Fireflies team president, said in a news release. “It’s a great opportunity to share Segra Park with the community in this way. We are excited to start baseball season early this year.”
