It was a sad weekend for baseball fans

January 22, 2013

While I was gearing up this past weekend for the 81st LeFlore County Tournament, the state's longest-running basketball tournament, being the baseball fan I am, it was a sorrowful one for me in that regard.
Three legendary baseball figures died over the weekend.
Leading this list was Stan Musial, one of the greatest St. Louis Cardinals players to ever don the red and white. “Stan the Man,” as he was known, was one of my late father's favorite players — and not just because he was a Cardinals fan.

PANOLA — Leflore's Caleb Smith hit the twine for 40 points as the Leflore Savages dominated the Panola Bearcats for a 67-35 win — and their fifth straight victory.
The ’Cats only trailed 23-13 at halftime, but the Savages outscored them 34-2 in the third quarter to take a 57-15 lead into the final period.
Smith's 40 points came in only three periods.
“He could have probably gotten 70 had he played the entire game,” said Daniel Caldwell, Leflore's first-year coach.

I’m ready for an exciting County Tournament week

January 21, 2013

I hope you all are as pumped for this week as I am. I think fans will see some very entertaining games, and will see some shockers.
I for one am glad that the entire county is getting in on the action this week. Most of the action will be here in the central part of the county — Wister, Carl Albert State College and Poteau High School. The semifinals will be Thursday and Friday nights at Talihina, while the finals will be in Spiro.
