The Ins and Outs of the HOF

August 3, 2013

Baseball's Hall of Fame Induction was last weekend and it was the first time since 1997 that the Baseball Writer's Association of America didn't vote a player in. The HOF Veteran's Committee voted umpire Hank O'Day, baseball pioneer Jacob Ruppert and pre-1900's catcher Deacon White. Congratulations to those guys which got in I've never heard of, but this column isn't about them. I'm looking toward next year when there will be three first-ballot HOFers in Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine and Frank Thomas.

BENTON – It will be an interim reunion of sorts when Benton Panther Assistant Coach Dwaine Fishburn and Freshman Panther Head Coach David Torres begin the basketball season. After six seasons as Benton’s head basketball coach, Chris Nail took the assistant principal position. Fishburn was named interim head basketball coach and Torres was named the interim assistant coach at the Benton School Board Meeting on Tuesday night. The duo also were interim coaches for the Panthers for the 2006-2007 seasons before Nail’s arrival.

Everett blanks Gwatney, advances to final

BRYANT – The Bryant Everett Black Sox advanced to the championship game with an 11-0 win over Jacksonville Gwatney on Monday in the American Legion Junior Regional Tournament at Bryant Hornet Field. Bryant moves on to face Texarkana, Texas, for the tournament championship needing just one more win to secure the title.
“This might have been the best team win all year long,” Bryant Coach Tyler Brown said. “We came out and we hit the ball well and had a plan at the plate. [We] played great defense which is always a plus and had great pitching. Great team win.”
