The District 14-AAA champion Athens Hornets are scheduled to face the Grand Saline Indians in a warm-up baseball game tonight at 6 at Hornet Field.

The Hornets, who nabbed the district title with a 7-3 mark to receive a bye in the opening round of the playoffs, have won 18 of their last 22 games. AHS started the season 0-4.

Grand Saline, which claimed the District 16-AA title, is coached by former AHS assistant coach and Cross Roads head baseball coach Brandon Luce.

The Hornets are scheduled to open the playoffs next week in the area round against an undetermined opponent.

AHS is in the playoffs for the first time since 2003.
