On April 13, the Pioneers took a 7-2 win over Mechanicsburg in what has become a Jonathan Alder softball tradition, “The Night Game” at Pastime Park in Plain City. Now in its fourth year, the game gives players and fans the chance to enjoy a game under the lights in a park where a number of those same players and fans played growing up. The tradition has treated the home team well; Jonathan Alder has won all four night games.
