A well-deserved celebration for the Division 2 state champion Mt. Pleasant High School baseball team will take place Thursday night.

A parade in downtown Mt. Pleasant will honor the Oilers, who finished their remarkable postseason run Saturday afternoon as it topped Richmond 7-2 in the D2 state championship contest at Michigan State University’s McLane Stadium.

The parade is set to begin at 8 p.m. After the parade, Mt. Pleasant baseball coach Luke Epple will speak to those in attendance at the Blue Gator Sports Pub & Grill.

The Oilers completed the season with a 32-8-1 record and state champions after entering the postseason unranked in the MHSBCA D2 weekly poll.

It was the third state championship under Epple and the first since 2007.
