Wild Kingdom?

COYOTE SPOTTED IN TOWN -  The Town of Saluda posted on its Facebook page this photo of a coyote roaming on North Rudoph Street Fri., Feb. 21, and urged citizens to take caution. The animals are obviously getting bolder.

Tigers To Play
In Segra Park

  The Columbia Fireflies have offered to host a baseball game between Saluda High School & Gray Collegiate Academy on Thursday, March 19th, with the 1st pitch scheduled for 7 p.m.    Tickets will be available at the gate for $6 each, and the Saluda baseball program will receive the gate on that evening.  This means that the more people who show up in Columbia that evening for the game, the more money raised for Saluda Tiger baseball. 
  What a tremendous opportunity the community  to support othe baseball Tigers at a world-class facility for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for many of  the student athletes.
  Segra Park is the home of the Columbia Fireflies, the Class A minor league affiliate of the New York Mets. Segra Park is a four-year old ballpark, and was recently chosen the single A “Ballpark Of The Decade” by Baseball Digest. Segra Park was built for $37 million, and it sits as the hub of Columbia, South Carolina’s Bull Street District revitalization project.
  Now, for SHS to have been given this opportunity, the Saluda baseball program has been given the responsibility to sell 100 tickets to the Columbia Fireflies home baseball game on Sunday, May 24th, against the Asheville Tourists.  The Tourists are the minor league affiliate of the Colorado Rockies. 
  May 24th will be dubbed “Saluda Tiger Day” at Segra Park, with our baseball team being acknowledged and celebrated on the field during pre-game festivities.  The tickets we are selling for 5/24 are $10 each and will include reserved seats in Segra Park’s infield bowl.  The game also happens to coincide with the three-day weekend for Memorial Day, and it will be a Sunday “Splash Day,” where fans will have the chance to cool off in the Fireflies’ Splash Zone, getting hosed down by the Fireflies’ own fire truck.  It certainly shapes up for what could be a tremendous day for the Saluda Tiger family.
  If you are interested in purchasing tickets for the 3/19 game, simply show up to the ballpark.
  If you are interested in purchasing tickets for Saluda Tiger Day on 5/24, please come visit Dr. Bryan Vacchio in the guidance office.  He will be assisting Coach Horton with ticket distribution for that game.
