Tigers and Warriors Class D North Matchup

The Fort Fairfield Tigers baseball team played their first game of the season on Tuesday in Dyer Brook against the Southern Aroostook Warriors.

A very young but talented Tigers Team 

Fort Fairfield is a young team this year and were taking the field shorthanded, missing 3 starters for various reasons. Southern Aroostook came into the game 0-1 after an opening season loss to Hodgdon last week.
