On Deck: Big Saturday of local sports

There’s a big day of local sports on tap today and we’ll have the latest on all of the action for you tonight here at The Courier sports department.
There are a dozen prep baseball games today as Findlay hosts Dayton Dunbar in a noon doubleheader to highlight the local slate. Fostoria and St. Wendelin host Old Fort and North Baltimore in the Lucadello Tournament today. Other all-area matchups include New Riegel at Columbus Grove, Leipsic at Pandora-Gilboa and Kalida at Patrick Henry.
Hopewell-Loudon is at Fostoria, Kalida visits Patrick Henry, Mohawk travels to Arcadia and Findlay hosts Celina in softball action.
