BRIDGEWATER, NJ - The wintry March weather has put a crimp in the pre-season training plans of Bridgewater-Raritan's spring sports teams.

Tomorrow’s afternoon scrimmage vs. Mendham will be played on Basilone Field. Spectators are welcome. Home football bleachers will be right-centerfield. Visitor football bleachers will be on the 3rd base line.
Basilone Field, unlike the varsity baseball field, has turf and will be playable, albeit with makeshift bases and a very short fence in right field.
The regular season for baseball and softball begins on Saturday, March 31.
