The Legion A district baseball tournament hosted by Evergreen evolved into a Cougar version of Jekyll and Hyde, a conundrum of epic proportions.
Good (but not good enough) Evergreen gave Eaton, the defending 3A champion and the eight-team district’s No. 1 seed, a scare in the July 23 opening round. Boosted by the pitching of sophomore Jack Messler, the Cougars led the Reds 3-2 after four innings before bowing 5-3 to the eventual champion.
