RDC Middle School baseball opens season at ‘new home’ field

By Jon Paul Martin

RDC Middle has traditionally played baseball at the community fields in Lykins Park, but with the newly built GRC Cardinal Field at the high school, RDC got a “hand me down” full of history and character.  The field needs a lot of work (it was not used last season due to covid) and the facilities need a polish, but it’s still home.

RDC invited Bondurant Middle into their house to kick off the season. The game was full of action with two well-matched teams. The action doesn’t always lead to high scores. Bondurant bettered the Cards by just one run, winning the game 3-2. Game standouts were pitcher Evan Crowe, striking out seven and walking one. At the plate, Haddon Cecil went 2 for 3 for the Cardinal offense.

The Cards are on the road today, March 31, at Scott County.
