I’m not much of a sports writer, but I pay close attention to the real pros, Jerry Byrd and Russell Hedges of the Bossier Press Tribune and Jason Pugh at the Shreveport Times, so here’s my first attempt to recap all the action yesterday as the Louisiana Class 4A State Baseball playoffs began. It became really obvious to everyone at all 3 parks that Bossier Parish came to play with all 3 teams advancing to the next round. Haughton beat Minden 10-5, Benton won over Northwood 11-1 and it was Parkway over Beau Chene 10-3. The way the LHSAA seeds teams for the play-offs will insure that at least one of our 3 local teams will advance to the quarter finals, but no more than 2. Haughton will play host to Parkway this coming Tuesday at 6pm and the winner of that game will make the quarter finals. Either Monday or Tuesday, Benton will face Ruston and that winner will also advance.
