John Tyler opens the 2016 baseball season Monday with a trip south to play Alto. First pitch is slated for 6:30 p.m.

For the Lions it’s the first of at least 11 games on the road before they come home to play at Mike Carter Field.

After playing in tournaments in Garland/Plano and San Marcos, John Tyler finally plays at home on March 8 against Lone Oak.

District 16-5A play opens a week later when Whitehouse comes to Mike Carter Field on March 15.

The Lions conclude the season with a home date against Nacogdoches on April 29.

In addition to opening the season with 11 straight games away from home, JT plays six of seven games on the road during district play, though one is a trip to Waco out of conference. The Lions play four of their last five at home.
