Playoff time has arrived on the diamond

September 20, 2011

It's hard to believe that the postseason for all of LeFlore County's fast-pitch softball teams (except Poteau) and fall baseball teams has arrived. It just seemed like the season started just a couple of weeks ago.
But the reality is the playoffs in Classes 3A, 2A, A and B in fast-pitch softhball and Classes A and B in fall baseball will begin this week with district tournaments.
The complete district-tournament schedules are at the end of this column.
A Clerical Error
I would like to think of myself as perfect, but in reality only God and Jesus are perfect.
Thanks to a good individual, it was pointed out to me that I was in error in Saturday's edition with regard to the LeFlore County Fast-Pitch Tournament.
The Poteau girls have only three-peated in the Fast-Pitch Tournament, winning in 2009, 2010 and this year. The Whitesboro Lady Bulldogs were the last non-Poteau team to win the title, doing so in 2008.
I just want to thank my friend for setting me straight — and I got to thinking, he also did so last year at this time, with regard to the same issue.
I hope this will be the only mistake I make from now on, but I know that won't be the case.
