2011 Arklahoma Shootout! Tournament was another success.

Even though we lost two teams to financial constraints at the last hour, the 6 teams entered proved to be greatly competitive.  The Tulsa MTBL WBO Barracudas repeated their title run by going undefeated in the tournament.  Local NWAMSBL 25+ Yankees finished a close second and the Van Buren Hogs (with a little help from some NWACC players) finished a strong third winning both of their games on day 2 against a strong Conway team and the Semi-Pro team from Pine Bluff (who had to resort to bringing in a utility player from the NWAMSBL Front Office to handle second base duties when they came up short-handed).

Here is a photo of the Fayetteville Yankees with their Runner-Up Trophy!

NWAMSBL Tigers Players go to the World Series--Win 48+ Central Championship

I wanted you to know that Don McFarland, and I were recruited to play on the team with whom Marvin Undernehr and Alan Davison, and Bill Snowden played for the last two years, known as the Austin Express out of TX.  Well, after 10 hard fought games in a six day schedule, the Austin Express won the 48+ central division World Series.  Stephen, as Alan Davison was absent this year due to his mother's passing that week, he just knew that this would be the year the team would bring it home.  It was truly everything that a player could expect and more epitomizing one's baseball dreams...like winning the CWS, except 25 years later

Arkansas Black Sox have successful trip to OKC Memorial Day Tournament despite record.
OKC was a great experience for our team as a whole. We went 1-2 but it hardly tells the whole story. The facilities were very nice and very well kept. Hotel was so-so but we didn't spend much time there. We defeated the OK Indians in the first game 7-6 on Saturday then played the OK Ameristars (host team) and were beat 6-3. OK Ameristars are a very solid club but there is was a little controversy regarding a former professional player. The umpire crew was not so great. [normal umpires were in short supply due to a local umpire strike]. Our guys played with a lot of heart and put everything they had on the field Saturday. Our pitching staff did a superb job and defense was excellent too. I think that on Sunday we were so spent from the day before that we didn't have anything left. We couldn't get the bats going and our pitching was below par. The opponents (New Mexico) were no better than the first team we beat but they simply executed defensively and played fundamentally sound baseball. They were just the better team that day but they did hand us a lopsided beating 14-0. But for our team as a whole the best thing we took from the tournament was what we needed most, team unification. We gelled a lot over the weekend and for a young team I believe that made the weekend a bigger success than any victory.
The Black Sox would like to extend a very special thank-you to Eric Smith (NWA Pirates) and Matt Smith for accompanying us to the Memorial Day Classic. Both gentlemen contributed greatly offensively and defensively over the course of the weekend. Though Matt had to travel back to Arkansas Saturday night he did a great job on the field and helped save arms needed for the match up against New Mexico on Sunday. Eric did a great job on the mound against the Ameristars on Saturday holding them to 3 runs through 4 stellar innings of pitching and through the pain of a sore elbow made a great play from left field throwing out an advancing runner to third base.--Danny Dodge, Black Sox (edit, Boudreaux)
Congratulations, Black Sox, on representing NWAMSBL.

NWAMSBL Day at Baum Stadium at the University of Arkansas -- Saturday February 25th, 2006

NWMSBL President Stephen Boudreaux threw out the first pitch during opening weekend versus LA. Tech.  It was great exposure for the NWAMSBL and a lot of fun to boot.  Brandon Barr, a member of the NWAMSBL White Sox, was the catcher of record for the pitch.  Brandon is a sophomore catcher for the Razorback Baseball team.  Congratulations, Brandon, for making the roster and for putting up with my knuckleball!

October 2005--A little note from Eric Exner from Phoenix--"Just wanted to give you a World Series update from my trip to Arizona.  I played in the 38+ Continental/Federal Division for the Pacific Coast Breakers.  We finished at 7-1-1, and won the Championship with a 12-5 win over the Austin Capitals.  Our second Championship in a row.  During the week I caught 8 games (I actually got 3 innings off on Thursday)  and pitched a complete game victory on Tuesday.  Did ok at the plate, only one extra base hit, a double in the Championship game, but did well enough to get named Tournament MVP.  So, all in all, a fun week, I am tired and sore, but I have plenty of time to recuperate"--Eric

Congratulations, Eric!
