Check out today's covered baseball and softball games

TIMES PHOTO: MILES VANCE - Beaverton's Kimaia Gassner (here during her team's 2-0 win over Southridge on April 22) and the Beavers are back in action today against Sunset at BHS at 5 p.m.C'mon — does it get any better than this?

Baseball, softball and sunshine — who could ask for anything more?

That's what's on the menu for Friday, and with selections like that, you know that Community Newspapers' sports editors and photographers will be out in force to cover a bunch of those games.

If you check out the Prep Baseball/Softball tab — you can see it by hovering over the Sports tab at the top of this web page — you'll see all of the stories and photos we create.

Community Newspapers, which sends out the biggest workforce in the state to cover high school sports each day, continues its same-day coverage model for baseball and softball on Friday.

And after we cover those games today, we'll share them on the Prep Baseball/Softball tab, which shows all the high school baseball and softball stories and photos created by sports editors, reporters and photographers from 19 newspapers within our company.

Besides all the stories already on the page, there will be more — much more — as we continue coverage of the 2016 baseball and softball seasons, including features on some of the state's best players, regular season and playoff games for both baseball and softball, and more.

As always, you’ll still be able to find stories about your local high school teams on the regular sports tab of your newspaper's website, but those stories — along with all the others created elsewhere within our company — will also appear on the new Prep Baseball/Softball Tab.

Our goal here is to provide the best and most comprehensive high school baseball and softball coverage in the state. And because we know that many high school baseball and softball fans are interested in more than just coverage of their local team, this new tab will open the door for readers to see all the high school diamond stories and photos that we create every week.
