One County Tournament down, one more left to go; Slow-Pitch County Tournament will not start until tonight due to wet fields (UPDATED LEFLORE COUNTY TOURNAMENT SCHEDULE)

April 8, 2014

What a 2014 LeFlore County Baseball Tournament it was. It went the entire distance — needing Saturday afternoon's if-game to decide the champion, which was won by Spiro over Poteau.
We also had a triple play turned during the week, as Heavener turned one in Thursday's winner's-bracket semifinal against Spiro, but the Bulldogs still prevailed.
Most of the games were very competitive and rather entertaining with some extra-inning games thrown in.
