Wet, cold, snowy. Spring practice for the Middletown softball team might as well have been renamed "winter'' practice.
Bad weather and a sloppy field forced the Blue Raiders to practice on a paved parking lot at Middletown Area High School.
When the Raiders traveled to Hershey for their first game of the season on Monday, March 23, it marked the first time Middletown had played on an honest-to-goodness grass field.
The Raiders pounded out 19 hits to beat Hershey, 18-10 in their season opener.
