MARA Reunion To Take Place During Butler-Providence Series
“Just like the good ole days.”
As Providence and Butler begin play in a three game series to crown the 4A Western Regional Champion, I want to turn the clock back a few years and drive on over the the beautiful baseball fields at MARA. A quick scan of the two rosters and help from a dear friend has led me to conclude that 30 of the kids that will hit the field at Providence tonight, once wore the blue and white colors of MARA.
Long one of the top athletic programs in the state, MARA baseball development will play a key role in the outcome of those series. Sure, many of these players are now in position to play college baseball, but one day they were all learning how to play the game from the volunteer coaches at MARA.
Let’s take a look at our best collection of Providence and Butler names that once played at MARA. Our apologies for any name we may have missed or misspellings.
