About this Article

West Aurora senior pitcher Ottavio Dattolo wasn't sure what was going to happen when he took the mound Tuesday afternoon against St. Charles East. And for good reason, considering the Blackhawks hadn't stepped foot on a baseball diamond yet this season due to the frigid outdoor conditions across suburban Chicago the past few weeks. The right-hander tossed 6 scoreless innings before giving way to senior closer Chris Hawks, who slammed the door shut on the Saints (0-1) during the Blackhawks' 1-0 nonconference victory in St. Charles.
