MCHS baseball playing final game of season today

The Moffat County High School varsity baseball team will finish its season with a doubleheader against Glenwood Springs starting at 11 a.m. today at Craig Middle School, 915 Yampa Ave.

The Bulldogs are 4-12 overall and 2-8 in the 4A Western Slope League, after splitting a doubleheader against Steamboat Springs earlier this week.

Coach Justin Folley said he expects a good, competitive set of games against the Demons (8-9, 6-4).

Though MCHS is out of playoff contention, Glenwood is fighting for the postseason.

"We already kind of ruined it for Steamboat, so Glenwood will be playing hard," he said.

Folley said he hopes for a big crowd to send off the players ending their high school career.

The games will have special significance for seniors Carlos Maldonado and Ivan Nielsen.

Nielsen declined to take the mound in Steamboat, preferring to wait until later in the week.

"He wants to pitch in front of his home crowd," Folley said. "It's going to be a good time for both of them."

Folley said he is proud of his team, no matter today’s outcome.

"It's definitely been a rebuilding year for us, and we've had our ups and downs but they've always all played hard," he said.
