St. Xavier’s baseball team will play in the Whitaker Bank/KHSAA State Baseball Tournament Thursday and Saturday at Whitaker Bank Ballpark in Lexington, Ky.  

Here’s a look at the Tigers schedule for the week.

First round: Pleasure Ridge Park, 6:30 p.m. Thursday

The Panthers are the Sixth Region champion and the defending state champs. The two teams met back on Wednesday, May 2nd, the St. X won 17-5. But scored 12 of those runs in the sixth and seventh inning.

Second round: LaRue County or Boyle County, 1:30 p.m. Saturday

LaRue County won the Fifth Region while Boyle County won the 12th Region. Neither team played the Tigers this season so it will be a new unfamiliar opponent regardless of who wins the first round game.

Ticket information: General admission seats are 10 dollars and if you want to sit right behind home plate, those spots are 14 dollars.

Only the first and second rounds are this Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, the semifinals will be played at 6 and 8:30 p.m. Friday, June 14th and the finals are at 6 p.m. June 15th.
