The Rider Raiders baseball team is one of 13 area teams ready to start the postseason. The Raiders send Cliff Peirce to the mound on Thursday night in North Richland Hills against the Birdville Hawks. "They have a good group of lefties that are their three,four and five-hole hitters that can hit the ball pretty well. If you hang one or make a mistake they will make you pay for it," says Peirce. "Ill just try to do my best to stay in the zone, stay low and do what I can." "If we ever play up to our ability we can win every game,"adds battery-mate Landon Little. "We just have to take one game at a time." Game two of the best-of-3 series is Friday night at Hoskins Field with a 7:30 first pitch. If a third game is necessary it it will at 4:30 Saturday in Weatherford.
