With the first full week of action on the diamond taking place this week, the majority of the LeFlore County baseball and slow-pitch softball teams will get their seasons started.
The next week's worth of games will be in the schedule at the end of this column.
Spring Sports Guide Coming Out March 23
The 2013 Spring Sports Guide will be published on March 23 — the weekend edition at the end of Spring Break week. This special section will have all the season preview stories of all the high school baseball teams, slow-pitch softball teams, golf teams, soccer teams and track teams — with team photographs and schedules from March 25 until the end of the season in May.
I will need team photographs e-mailed to me by March 15 — the last day of school before Spring Break begins.
