St. Charles East is hosting 4A baseball and softball sectionals this week, an event made more exciting by the Saints' presence in both tournaments.
Baseball players were in attendance for the softball team's 11-2 victory against Bartlett in a semifinal Tuesday. Softball players will look to return the favor when East baseball entertains Lake Park at 4:30 p.m. Wednesday.
"It's awesome. We love it. We're excited to be playing at our own field," East softball third baseman Alex Latoria said. "It was great that they came out and cheered us on, too. They're doing good, too."
Sectional championship games for both sports are scheduled for 11 a.m. Saturday.
