MOUNT VERNON — Mount Vernon baseball coach Rob Gross noted that the forecast for Friday called for cloudy skies and 45 degrees.

“That’s great weather,” he said. “It isn’t usually. It’s the kind of thing you’d hope for in March.”

Gross’ Yellow Jackets have played nine games since the high school baseball season officially began nearly four weeks ago. Five of those games took place during a week of spring break in Florida.
