This weekend will bring together possibly the biggest rivalry in the entire city as United and Alexander meet in the region IV quarterfinals. The Longhorns won the only two meetings of the year, taking game one 9-7 and followed that up with a 7-6 victory in 10 innings to end the district season. With these two schools being so close and many of the athletes playing with and against each other since they were kids, there is a natural rivalry that amps up when they meet in the playoffs.
Game one of the best of three series is Friday at 7:30 at Veterans Field. Game two and if necessary game three will be Saturday starting at 5:00. There will be no advance selling of tickets as they can only be purchased at the gate, the day of the game.
