The Dayton Dragons and Day Air Ballpark will host 34 high school baseball games this spring in the Dragons High School Baseball Showcase.

The event, in its 16th year, is sponsored by Orthopedic Associates.

“This is one of my favorite Dragons programs, without question,” said team president Robert Murphy. “The kids are playing for the love of the game, in front of their families and classmates. It has a very wholesome, grassroots feel to it, and we enjoy hosting these games at Day Air Ballpark each season.”

In accordance with new COVID guidelines, tickets will all be digital and must be reserved in advance on the Dragons website. Seating in the stadium seating bowl will be limited. Fans are encouraged to get their digital tickets as soon as possible. Online links will be provided to all schools and be available on the Dragons website later this month.
