With some sunshine over the last couple of days, there should be some baseball and softball played this week, although itâ€™s Spring Break.
Thereâ€™s going to be a lot of baseball around here this week, thanks to the Eastern Oklahoma Shootout that will take place Wednesday through Friday at multiple locations in LeFlore County.

Two years ago, the Talihina Golden Tigers made the Class 2A State Tournament, but lost to Latta in the quarterfinals. The three seniors, Bryar Humphreys, Christian McClain and Alan Lockhart, had a good feeling they would return at least one more time to the Elite 8. That happened Saturday night when they beat Preston in the Class 2A Area Tournament finals at the Wilburton Gym.
