Barton baseball to play in Topeka Monday
spt BartonCougarsBlue

No. 18 ranked Barton County baseball will play a doubleheader against Cloud County at 1:30 p.m. Monday at Washburn University’s Falley Field in Topeka to conclude the regular season. The games were moved to Topeka due to the amount of moisture in the Great Bend area over the weekend.
No local radio or web streaming will be performed, but live stats will be available at, as well as, social media updates on Twitter via “BartonSports.”
The teams split Friday’s doubleheader with Barton taking the opener 5-4 while the T-Birds captured the night cap with a 10-9 victory. The split ended Barton’s hopes of chasing the Jayhawk West crown while tightening up the chase for second place.
Barton County (39-15, 20-10) will open post-season play Friday at Lawson-Biggs Field, hosting a first round best-of-three series for the first time since 2008. Game times and an opponent, yet to be determined, will be released later in the week. Sixth-seed Cloud County (26-28, 11-19) will play on the road Friday.
As a reminder with the unexpected weather changes of the spring season, fans and media are strongly encour-aged to visit and/or follow “Barton Sports” via Facebook and Twitter for the latest in schedule changes.
