Short Season A West Virginia Black Bears

The West Virginia Black Bears started their inaugural season off Friday night with a 15-7 loss to the Mahoning Valley Scrappers. The second game of the season on Saturday night was a washout. They made it up with a double-header on Sunday. When playing a double-header in the minor leagues, typically each game is only seven innings long. In the first game, the Black Bears came from behind to win 5-4 in the bottom of the 7th inning. In the second game, the Black Bears won 3-2.
