A new era begins Tuesday for the Emporia High baseball team. Shawn Wilson begins his first season as the Head Baseball Coach of the Spartans with a doubleheader at Topeka Hayden.
Shawn Wilson said having a chance to work with the players last year during the American Legion season is a big plus.
Emporia High returns 5 seniors, Parker Bass, Braxton Marstall, Nick Kirmer, Austin Gordon and Nick Kirmer who will be the starting pitcher in game 1.
Emporia High will play their first home game on the new Jones Field at Sodens Grove on April 11th against Shawnee Heights.
