CHILLICOTHE, Ohio - The Chillicothe Paints will host the week-long 5th Annual First National Bank of Waverly Baseball Classic beginning Saturday, March 24.

A total of 28 high school teams will compete in a 17-game schedule over the seven-day period. “Opening Day” for Ohio High School baseball is Saturday, March 24, and there will be five games slated at VA Memorial Stadium, starting at 10:00 am.

There will be two games on Monday (26th), Tuesday (27th) and Wednesday (28th) evenings and one game on Thursday (29th) and Friday (30th). The event will wrap up on Saturday, March 31, with five more games, starting at 10:00 am.

The “Classic” was established in 2013 with the idea of providing local baseball fans the opportunity to watch some of the elite prep programs from around the state and southern Ohio. Many of the teams are perennial powers, making this week-long event one of the top showcases of high school baseball in Ohio.

A number of the players featured in these games are already committed to top Division I collegiate baseball programs, and many more are being heavily recruited to further their respective careers in baseball.

CNK Athletic Equipment of Circleville is also a contributing sponsor.

Each day’s admission is $5.00 for adults and $4.00 for students. Concessions will be available also.
