The reigning OVL Champions have acquired their schedule for the 2020 summer baseball season. The 40-game slate features 20 home and 20 road contests. This year, the Hoppers will take the diamond at Christian County High School for all home games, with first pitch slotted at 6:30 pm unless otherwise announced.
The Hoppers, under the direction of new Head Coach Gary Vaught, open the season at home, hosting the Fulton Railroaders on Friday night, May 29th. Following the home debut, the Hoppers will embark on a 4-game road trip, the first of two such stretches over the summer.
The schedule also has the Hoppers home for 3 3-game homestands throughout the season, with one covering the July 4th holiday weekend. Fans attending the Hoppers match against the Franklin Duelers on 4th of July will have a perfect view of the Hopkinsville firework display at Ruff Park following the game. The Saturday night contest will begin 30 minutes early at 6:00 to accommodate.
The regular season runs from May 29th—July 19th, with the Hoppers wrapping up regular season play in Paducah against the Chiefs. The Hoppers will attempt to repeat as OVL tournament champions with the playoffs getting underway on July 24th.
Once again, Mondays are league mandated off days, barring any weather-forced rescheduling.
