CORPUS CHRISTI - Fourteenth-ranked Bishop (8-6-1) and Banquete (7-8) meet under the lights Tuesday at Whataburger Field as the MIRA'S High School Legends Baseball Series continues.
First pitch for the District 31-3A opener is 7 o'clock, when Bulldog junior right-hander Mark Tamez takes the ball against senior lefty Rico Trevino. The teams last met June 3 in the 2016 Region IV-3A final at Whataburger Field, Banquete advancing to the state tournament after a 3-1 victory and two-game series sweep.
On March 29 of last year, Banquete prevailed 5-3 at Whataburger Field in a 12-inning classic that lasted four hours and 23 minutes before 1,014.
The Badgers are led by first-year coach Mike Medina, a former Corpus Christi Moody assistant. Banquete's Rusty Miller is in his fourth season as head coach.
