MINNEAPOLIS (AP) â€” On a sparkling summer night in the Upper Midwest, baseball generations joined up and prepared to pass.
Derek Jeter, the 40-year-old face of baseball, bid farewell to the All-Star game at the same time 22-year-old Mike Trout became the second-youngest player to earn Most Valuable Player honors at the showcase.
Last May, Poteau High School golfer Hannah Ward three-peated as Class 4A state champion to end her prep career. Last weekend, two golfers did likewise.
Ward's coach, Randall Wheat and Jonathan Spikes of Danville, Ark., won their third straight Spider Webb Invitational, which took place Saturday and Sunday at Wolf Ridge and Choctaw country clubs.
Wheat and Spikes shot 66s on each day to win by three strokes over the duo of Kale Holton and Jason May, 132 to 135.

The 2014 Spider Webb Invitational will take place Saturday and Sunday at Wolf Ridge Country Club and Choctaw Country Club.
I've been at Kiamichi Baptist Assembly [KBA] Camp in Talihina with Double Branch Baptist Church's youth group this week. I was one of the sponsors and the event co-ordinator.
As you can imagine, all of those kids wanted to do everything. So, we signed up for every sport and activity offered for the week.
Among the activities offered was a â€śrope challenge courseâ€ť with a giant swing as well as ziplining and the dreaded â€śLeap of Faith.â€ť The â€śLeap of Faithâ€ť is a 25-foot long pole that you climb up and have to jump off and try to grab a flag about 10 feet away from you.
