The sound of a bat cracking against the ball means one thing; baseball season has started. Portola, Quincy and Chester all started the season March 8 at the Glenn Cox Baseball Tournament at Los Molinos High School.
All three teams played three games. Chester took on Fall River early Friday morning to lose its first game 3-1. Immediately afterward, Quincy took down its rival Portola 8-6 in a game that got down to the wire.
Quincy went on to get shut down 9-0 by Fall River and then beat Princeton 11-0. Portola took down Chester 11-2 and Biggs 13-1. After losing to Portola, Chester won its last game of the tournament 15-3 against Los Molinos.
