Diamond dolls, guys get 2014 started Monday; 2014 Fall Diamond Tab publishing next Saturday
Fall ball is truly here as the 2014 high school fast-pitch softball and fall baseball seasons will get going next week, with most teams beginning Monday. The schedule — at least that which I have for up through Aug. 18 is listed at the end of this column.So, I spent most of Friday as well as time today working on the 2014 Fall Diamond Tab, which will publish next Saturday. It will be printed Thursday, so I will need team photographs with their identifications from left to right on each row e-mailed to me at firstname.lastname@example.org by no later than Wednesday — but the sooner the better. For those who have not given me their schedules, I'll need them as well.ScheduleSoftballMondayWister at Poteau, 4 p.m.TuesdayTahlequah at Poteau, 5 p.m.Whitesboro at Panama, 5 p.m.Howe and Soper at Buffalo Valley, 2:30 p.m. (Howe vs. Buffalo Valley, 2:30 p.m.; Howe vs. Soper, 4 p.m.)ThursdayQuinton at Panama, 4 p.m.FridayPoteau at Broken Arrow Tournament: vs. Westmoore, 1:30 p.m.; vs. Inola, 3 p.m.; vs. Mustang, 6:30 p.m.Panama at Beggs Festival, TBA.SaturdayPoteau at Broken Arrow Tournament: vs. Chickasha, 10:30 a.m.; vs. Bixby, 2 p.m.; vs. TBA, 5:30 p.m.Panama at Beggs Festival, TBA.Aug. 18Talihina at Poteau, 4 p.m.Cameron at Wister, 4 p.m.Howe at Heavener, 4 p.m.Keota at Panama, 4 p.m.Quinton at Pocola, 5:30 p.m.BaseballMondayBuffalo Valley at Howe, 4:30 p.m.TuesdayHowe at McCurtain, 4 p.m.ThursdayRed Oak Eagle Classic: Cameron vs. Whitesboro, noon; Wister vs. Buffalo Valley, 2 p.m.; Howe vs. Crowder, 4:30 p.m.; Red Oak vs. Stuart, 6:30 p.m.FridayRed Oak Eagle Classic: Wister-Buffalo Valley loser vs. Howe-Crowder loser, noon; Cameron-Whitesboro loser vs. Red Oak-Stuart loser, 2 p.m.; Wister-Buffalo Valley winner vs. Howe-Crowder winner, 4:30 p.m.; Cameron-Whitesboro winner vs. Red Oak-Stuart winner, 6:30 p.m.SaturdayConsolation Championship, 10 a.m.; Third-Place Game, noon; Title Game, 3 p.m.Aug. 18Howe at Wister, DH, 5:30 p.m.Editor's note: Not all LeFlore County high school fast-pitch softball and baseball schedules have been received by the Poteau Daily News at this time.
