The early reviews -- make that review -- was a good one as the Colonels won 10-4 while they welcomed the Darlington Tigers to their stadium, located behind their new school, in White.
"It was a beautiful night for baseball," head coach Todd Eubanks said. "The weather was warm and just right."
It didn't hurt that the Colonels brought a lot of offensive firepower to the game, though.
The Colonels started the celebration early, as they put up three runs in the first inning.
That lead held until the third, when the Tigers answered with two runs, closing the contest to 3-2.
Cass did some answering itself in the bottom of the frame, adding an insurance run that pushed the score to 4-2. Darlington tacked on a run in the fifth, to pull to 4-3.
However Cass sent two runners home in the bottom of the inning, moving up to a 6-3 margin.
Darlington added another run in the sixth and trailed 6-4.
The Cass lumber party started in earnest at that point and the Colonels had ripped off four more runs by the end the inning, going up 10-4 to close out scoring.
Leading the offensive effort for Cass were Tyler Gates, who was 2-of-4 with two home runs; Dalton Parham, 2-of-3 with two RBIs; and Blake Kirk, 1-of-2 with 2 RBIs.
The coach said the Colonels used a different pitcher for each inning.
"We wanted to get them all in the new stadium and sort of break it in," he said.
Eubanks said the scrimmage served its purpose in several areas.
"It showed us some areas where we need to get better," he said, "and it also showed us some positive areas where we played pretty well in."
Cass gets to show off its new stadium in earnest Monday night, when it hosts North Paulding County.
