Paris Wildcats, Zach Norris, and Corey Allen are 1st Team All-District Selections, while Seth Adams of the Panthers is a 1st team pick.
Mount Pleasant – Mt. Pleasant High School alum, Michael Kopech has been finding success in the Chicago White Sox minor league system. Tonight the hard-throwing righty will get the start for the North Division in the Southern League All-Star Game. Kopech has a league-best 80 strikeouts on his way to a 2.93 ERA this season with a 4-3 record. Tonight’s Southern League All-Star game is in Pensacola, Florida and is set for first pitch at 5:30.
Sulphur Springs – The Sulphur Springs Wildcats pick up two wins to only one loss in the State 7-on-7 qualifiers in Tyler, Texas.

Despite the pair of victories, Sulphur Springs would lose the tie breaker preventing them from advancing to the state tournament.  They’ll have another shot when they play in another qualifier this Friday in Rowlett.

The offense did its job as Nomar Mazara connected in the 1st inning. [AUDIO]. Adrian Beltre drove in three runs as well. The Rangers and Blue Jays are back at it against tonight [on KPLT 1490am and 96.3fm]. First pitch is set for 7:05.
