One special section down, one to go

August 27, 2013

I made it through the first of two enormously busy weeks for me as the 2013 Fall Diamond Tab was in Saturday's edition, and I hope you all enjoyed it.
However, that's just one of two back-to-back special sections I have to work on. I'll spend this week preparing the 2013 LeFlore County Gridiron Preview for this Saturday's paper. Thus, just like last week, you all may not see me a whole lot around the diamond as normal.
Once this week and the Labor Day weekend pass, I should be able to be my “normal” self and be at a game a day somewhere at the diamond.
