SLOCOMB, Ala. (WTVY) - It is going to be a strange 18 days for the Wiregrass and the state of Alabama.
Beginning March 18 until April 6, at the earliest, the AHSAA is suspending all athletic-related activity due to the spread of the coronavirus.
Many teams finishing up play over the weekend, but a few Wiregrass teams meeting on Tuesday, the final day play was allowed.
In Slocomb, the Red Tops honored the seniors on both the baseball and softball teams on what could be the last games of their Slocomb careers.
However, the Red Tops wanted to do something special for their opponent, Carroll.
Slocomb took time to honor the seniors on the Eagles teams as well. A truly classy gesture.
The coaches know a return to the field is not guaranteed, but they are urging their teams to stay ready in case play starts back up next month.
The main thing that I convey to them is that don't go home and sit on the couch," said Slocomb softball coach Ashley Bell. "You can do abs in your living room, you can go run to the mailbox and back, you can play catch in the backyard with a net, you can play wall ball against your garage. Don't have the mindset that it is done because when we come back, you are not going to be ready."
