Bombers Sweep Double Header vs. Stallions

The Dubois County Bombers led 1-0 in the bottom of the 3rd inning Friday night against the Muhlenberg County Stallions when a monsoon passed through Huntingburg, postponing the game. Despite the postponement, the Bombers still had fun. Here’s a video of Ben Wilcoxson catching air!
