Saugus High plays its first night baseball game – tonight

(Editor’s Note: The following info is from a press release World Series Park issued this week.)

  For the first time in the history of Saugus High School baseball, a night game will be played tonight (Friday, April 29) at World Series Park. Saugus will face Greater Lawrence at 7 p.m. The ceremonial first pitch will be thrown out by Dr. Han Soo Lho, a Saugus dentist and owner of Saugus Dental Center, who was a major donor to the World Series Park Lighting Fund. The color guard from Beverly High School Junior Marine Corps ROTC will also participate.

  “After saving and fundraising over seventeen years, we were able to install the lights at the end of last season,” World Series Park Superintendent Bob Davis said.

  “To my knowledge, a night high school baseball game has never been played in Saugus. The lights will provide more extended use of the field. We have a full schedule of night games already planned for this season,” Davis said. “We extend an invitation to all former Saugus High baseball players to attend Friday night’s game. Also, the public is invited to experience nighttime baseball in Saugus.”
