It’s spring break – and spring break high school baseball tournament time – for a number of Charlotte-area school systems.
The wrinkle this year is that some school systems, like Charlotte-Mecklenburg, are taking break on the week before Easter. Others are waiting until next week.
Among the tournaments taking place this week are the annual Jack Sink Classic at Myers Park and East Mecklenburg, the Spring Break Tournament at Indian Land, and the Shelby Easter Tournament.
The Jack Sink Classic was to have started Saturday, but opening-day games were rained out. One of the highlight games will be Monday evening, when Southwestern 4A Conference leader Myers Park faces state private school power Charlotte Christian.
The amended schedule:
At Myers Park – Butler vs. Covenant Day, 4 p.m.; Myers Park vs. Charlotte Christian, 6:30.
At East Mecklenburg – South Mecklenburg vs. Mallard Creek, 1:30; East Mecklenburg vs. Lake Norman Charter, 4; Olympic vs. Providence Day, 6:30.
