Over the last few weeks the weather in south Louisiana has been outstanding, 65 and sunny has been pretty common. But of course, once opening day hits, the weather goes south in a hurry. As teams all across Louisiana were battling the elements to start their 2015 seasons on Tuesday, Prep Baseball Report Louisiana stopped in for the #3 ranked Jesuit HS and Grace King HS matchup at Kirsch Rooney stadium.

The Blue Jays dominated the game from the get go, putting up 19 runs in the first inning on the way to a 30-0 victory and combined no-hitter. Jesuit’s lineup showed extreme depth, with a mixture of upperclassmen and talented underclassmen. Senior Myles Blunt started on the mound, and filled up the strike zone. Then handed it off to others, including 2017 pitchability left-hander Davis Martin. Below you will find reports on some players that showed well Tuesday, yet remain uncommitted.
