For the second straight day, the 2014 Panama Summer Softball League Postseason Tournament was rained out on Tuesday. The original opening-day slate of games on Monday was also rained out.
The event has now been made into a two-day event, with the title game slated for 7:45 p.m. Friday with the if-game at 9 p.m.
Here is the new schedule:
Carl Albert State College baseball coach Mark Pollard and assistant coach Tyler Guthrie are trying to change the â€śappearanceâ€ť of the future of the Vikings baseball program. Both believe they did so with the signing of Jacob Thompson.
Thompson, a Farmington [Ark.] High School product, signed a college letter of intent with the Vikings in a signing ceremony Monday afternoon inside Mick Thompson Fieldhouse.
The Poteau Pirates, an age 14-and-younger softball team, will have a fundraising brown bag lunch from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Poteau High School parking lot. The brown bag lunch will consist of a hamburger/cheeseburger, chips and a drink for $6. All proceeds will help the team fund its trip to the state tournament later this summer.
