The Hazard Bulldogs start the 2017 baseball season as the defending 14th region champions. The Bulldogs will return a wealth of talent off last year’s squad as Ryan Smith, Rudy Akemon, Andy Baker, Bailey Blair and Devin Morris return to the diamond.

Hazard finished last season with a 30-12 record, and an appearance in the Elite Eight. The Bulldogs have put together a solid schedule this season in preparation for another run in the state tournament.

The Bulldogs will spend their first week on the road, with only one game at home. Hazard will then play several games at home.
