Major League Baseball hosted the first round of its 2021 Draft Sunday, and Tri-State viewers might have noticed a familiar face during the telecast.

The Shortstop recently helped lead the Raiders to a Class 3A Indiana high school baseball state title with a win over Hanover Central in June.

Today's high temperature of 87° was our warmest in a week and a half - we last climbed that high on the afternoon of September 18th when we tipped the scales at 88°. The remainder of the evening will remain quite mild under clear skies; expect temperatures to first fall to 83° by dinnertime before dropping to 73° by 10PM. The clear skies and weak southerly wind flow will help keep temperatures relatively stable during the overnight and predawn hours - we'll wake up to a morning low of just 62° early Wednesday morning.
