July 4, 2012

My boat is about to get some time on the water. My midget baseball team ended its season on Tuesday night, losing a heartbreaker to the Poteau Pirates 4-3 in the Ok Kids Regional Tournament at the Poteau Area Recreational Complex. Ben Klutts threw one heck of a game against us, and I want to wish him and the rest of the Pirates good luck.
