Moffat County baseball to honor Clayton Moon Thursday
Moffat County High School baseball is ready to hit the field for its first set of home games, but before that comes an important memorial.
The Bulldogs will host a pregame ceremony for former team manager and MCHS graduate Clayton Moon at 4 p.m. Thursday at the Craig Middle School field, 915 Yampa Ave.
Moon, a 2015 Moffat County alumnus, was killed in a Monday car accident near Boulder.
Coach Justin Folley said the community is encouraged to attend the ceremony to honor Moon, which will include a brief introduction and a moment of silence.
The Dogs’ games with Basalt will take place immediately, starting with varsity and followed by JV.
MCHS baseball won its season opener Tuesday, defeating Rangely 11-3 on the road.
The summertime ended well for the members of the Moffat County 4-H shooting teams, as rifle, pistol, archery and shotgun earned big results at the Colorado State Championships.
