Quick-adjusting Trout reaches new heights

August 14, 2013

Mike Trout, v. 2013, is even better than the 2012 model.
Trout, who's aunt and uncle are Sandra and Charles Busonick [Charles works for the City of Poteau Water Department], turned 22 just last week. Before that birthday (on which, naturally, he hit a home run), Trout had, according to FanGraphs.com, accumulated more weighted runs created (162) than any other player in history through his age-21 season. Trout's name topped that particular list ahead of Jimmie Foxx (161), Ted Williams (158), Rogers Hornsby (150), Ty Cobb (148), Mel Ott (146) and Mickey Mantle (143), among other luminaries.

Tuesday's rain washes out softball, baseball openers

August 14, 2013

Softball games rained out were Poteau at Pryor and Heavener and Smithville at Whitesboro, and none of them have been rescheduled at this time.
On the baseball diamond, games which fell victim to Tuesday's rain were Cameron at Wister, Panola at Leflore and Howe at McCurtain, with none of the games rescheduled.
