Last year, Montana was one of only six states to play a full legion baseball schedule due to the COVID-19 pandemic. But Saturday, in the season-opener for the Helena Senators in 2021, it felt almost like any other opening day.

The Senators, fresh off a runner-up finish at the State AA Legion tournament, opened the season with an 8-6 win over the Missoula Mavericks, then dropped the second game 9-4 as the teams split in non-conference action.
"It felt great," Senators outfielder Quinn Belcher said. "It definitely feels a lot more normal. It just feels like a normal season playing baseball."
