A remarkable year in Union City sports continues into baseball and softball. The Union City Lady Bears won the Region Class 2A championship a few weeks ago, and currently have a bye in the first round of the playoffs. They will play the winner of the Lakeview and Iroquois winner next Tuesday in quarterfinal action. Location and time has not been announced.

Meanwhile the Bears boys baseball team won the Region 4 title last night, and were driven through town, on trucks from the Union City Fire Department. The Bears shutout Iroquois 11-0 to win the title outright.

D-10 action opens Friday, and continues Monday and Tuesday. District 10 baseball playoffs include the Bears with a first round bye as the region champions. They will play at Ainsworth Field on Monday: Union City vs. Mercer-Saegertown winner, 4:30 p.m.
