The Camarillo and Rio Mesa high school baseball teams will play at 7 tonight under the lights of Veteran Field at Freedom Park.

“It’s going to be an exciting atmosphere,” Camarillo head coach John Gonzalez said. “With most of our games being at 3 p.m., many fans can’t come out to watch us play because of work. The late start gives the fans a better chance to watch two local teams battle it out on the new field.”

Veteran Field, which is fenced in and has computer-operated lights, opened in January.

The Spartans (6-9 overall) defeated the Scorpions (7-8 overall) 9-7 on the road in a Pacific View League game on Tuesday. Rio Mesa sits in second in league with a 5-2 record. Camarillo is 4-3 in the standings. Oxnard leads the Pacific View with a 6-1 record.

“It’s going to be an exciting finish in league,” said Gonzalez, the first-year Scorpion skipper. “We’ve had our ups and downs. We need to find consistency.”
