Wednesday’s Sports

Photo by Drew Barkley

MLB

Will Major League Baseball’s opening day happen? Major League Baseball locked out its players early Thursday morning, certifying the game’s first work stoppage in more than a quarter-century after months of talks yielded little progress toward a new labor contract.

The long-anticipated lockout ends the transaction frenzy that led to its imposition and sends the industry into a dark period with scant light insight.

Wednesday, the Big 12 Conference released Baylor’s 2022 football schedule featuring six home games and a Thanksgiving weekend showdown with Texas. The Bears will play eight games in Texas and close the regular season in Austin against the Longhorns for the first time since 1995.

 

HIGH SCHOOL

The State Executive Committee of the University Interscholastic League met Wednesday to hand down decisions on the eligibility of student-athletes. The Committee denied the appeals on student-athletes from Hallsville High School, Friendswood Clear Brook High School, and Plano West High School. The UIL upheld the previous ruling of the district executive committees for those schools.

Paris Junior High Ladycat Basketball will be playing at Liberty Eylau Thursday (Dec 2).

The Mount Pleasant Tigers dropped their third straight game on Tuesday evening. Royse City claimed the win 62-56. Free throws would be the story as the Tigers earned their way to the stripe but could only convert on 16 out of 34 attempts. Mt Pleasant’s freshmen take on Whitehouse at 4:00 pm Thursday in the Tatum sub-varsity tournament. The JV follows at 5:15 pm. (→ view on teamapp.com)
