Monday's Local Sports Coverage (8/12)

Posted: Updated:

Football is back!  As the clock struck midnight on Monday, we were wide awake covering the first football practices of the fall season.  Evart and Reed City make their first workouts of preseason camp midnight mandess with both schools practicing under the lights.  Find out how the Coyotes and Wildcats are preparing for the upcoming season.

Also on Monday, the Beach Bums were back in action wrapping up a series at Wuerfel Park against the Gateway Grizzlies.  T.C. continues to lead the Frontier League East standings and Scott Dunn was brilliant again, improving to 14-0 on the season as the Bums won it 6-4.

We also take a brief look at the Midwest League scoreboard and tell you why Reed City was wearing some odd looking "uniforms" during their first practice of the year.
