LITTLE ROCK â€“ Former UALR shortstop Austin Pfeiffer has been selected by the Baltimore Orioles in the 27th round on the 2014 MLB Draft. In 2014 Pfeiffer hit .253 with five home runs while starting every one of the Trojans 54 games at shortstop.
â€śWell the first person to contact me was my mother,â€ť Pfeiffer said about how he found out he had been selected. â€śShe called me and told me the good news shortly before the Orioles contacted me.â€ť
Pfeiffer said the Orioles congratulated him and said they look forward to what he can bring to their organization.
BENTON â€“ After a 6-6 record last year, itâ€™s best since the 2005 season, the Benton Panther football team closes its spring portion of its schedule, six practices including Friday nightâ€™s spring scrimmage at Panthers Stadium, featuring its hurry-up offense.
Itâ€™s not over until itâ€™s over. That could be the new motto for the 2014 Benton Lady Panthers. Down to their last strike and an unlikely hero at the plate in the 6A State Championship game, the Lady Panthers had their lives changed forever.
It took just one swing to rejuvenate a packed house Friday at Bogle Park in Fayetteville. Staring at a full count with two on and down 1, freshman slugger Breanna Langford deposited possibly the biggest hit in school history over the fence in left field.
