Students from Taylorville High School felt like big leaguers on Tuesday.
The Taylorville High School Tornadoes baseball team played their final game of the season at Busch Stadium in St. Louis, home of the St. Louis Cardinals.
The game was the product of years of hard work and organization according to Taylorville Athletic Director Paul Held says.
Held explains that the excitement to play at Busch Stadium was high among, players, parents and supporters, and to have the senior class play their final high school baseball game at a major league stadium was a truly memorable and amazing experience.
Taylorville dropped the game 11-1 to a 26 win Columbia Eagles team, but Held says that to see the Taylorville Purple and Gold spread across Busch Stadium is a memory he will hold for a lifetime.
Taylorville finishes the 2018 season at 6-24 but with a major league memory to remember.
