JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The Raines High School Vikings and Ribault High School Trojans tied 5-5 in four innings on Thursday at the Bragan Baseball Complex at Fort Family Regional Park.

“I want to congratulate both Raines and Ribault on a very hard-played game by both teams,” said Jumbo Shrimp executive vice president/general manager Harold Craw. “The Jumbo Shrimp want to sincerely thank Duval County Public Schools, Walk-Off Charities and everyone who has helped make the High School Heritage Classic a continued success in our club’s salute to Black History.”

Both teams wore customized Jacksonville Red Caps uniforms to commemorate the Negro American League team that played in Jacksonville from 1938 until 1942. The Jumbo Shrimp will retain possession of the A. Philip Randolph Cup, which honors the legacy of local Civil Rights icon Asa Philip Randolph, until next season’s game.

In a back-and-forth affair, each side scored twice in the second, twice in the third and once in the fourth for the final 5-5 margin.
