It’s crunch time on the baseball diamond for the St. David Tigers.
Coach Ron Goodman and troops are busy preparing for the AIA Baseball 1A State Championship where they will meet up with a familiar foe Friday in the first round.
No. 11 St. David will tangle with No. 6 Baboquivari in a 4 p.m. game in Goodyear. Each team team took one of their two meetings during the regular season with the Tigers taking the most recent game, a 9-1 road win on April 9.
The Tigers posted a strong finish to the regular season, winning four of their last five and headed into the postseason playing their best ball of the season.
St. David ended the regular season at 7-11 overall, 5-1 in section play.
