Bluffton players get scooters

They're going to play ball at Bluffton University, whose baseball team was in a bus wreck earlier this month.

The school in northwest Ohio says the team has decided to play this season, after making sure it was OK with families of the five players who were killed. The team's bus plunged off an Atlanta overpass onto Interstate 75 March second while on a trip to Florida. Four players died at the scene and a fifth died a week later.

The Beavers' first game will be March 30th against Mount Saint Joseph of Cincinnati.

The team will wear all black uniforms to honor their teammates who died. The Beavers began practicing yesterday.
