2009 Arklahoma Shootout

The Arklahoma Shootout was a tournament developed 6 years ago to try and bring together MSBL-affiliated teams in Arkansas and Oklahoma and to raise a little money for a local charity so that we could give back to our community in a more organized fashion. In this year's installment that was hit a bit by the down economy, our team involvement fell from 8 to 6 at last moment to include the host, Rogers/Lowell White Sox of the NWAMSBL, the three-time defending champion, OKC Outlaws who are MSBL World Series veterans and now affiliated with the WBC, the Central Arkansas MABL Indians from Conway, AR, the Fort Smith Cardinals of the NWAMSBL, the Tulsa MSBL World Baseball Outreach Barracudas, and the Fayetteville Cubs formed from the NWAMSBL Dodgers and an independent team from last season's NWAMSBL Cubs. Tournament proceeds this year are designated for Pagnozzi Charities established by former Arkansas Razorback and St. Louis Cardinal catcher, Tom Pagnozzi, to aid Northwest Arkansas area underprivileged youth play sports by providing equipment, facilities, scholarships, and the like.

In the tournament championship game, the OKC Outlaws were set to defend their title by facing the Central Arkansas MABL Indians...both who advanced to the title game going undefeated in their respective pools. The game started out looking competitive and the Outlaws were nervous with the score at 4-3 in favor of the OKC team after the second inning. However, the Outlaws showed their muscle as the game wound on rattling the Indian pitching staff for 16 runs over the next 5 innings to close out the contest in a run-rule game after 7 with a final 20-5. The Outlaws winning pitcher was Myles Buuck who went the distance. Matt Sharp earned the tournament MVP honors going 6-6 on the final day. Jake Mays took home the home run derby title having blasted three in the weekend in pool play and one towering shot in the championship game.

One of the observations I had from the game was that the OKC squad was devoid of weakness on defense and offense. Manager John Tointigh has assembled a capable squad of collegiate veterans whose solid game play is enhanced by a jovial environment in the dugout. These guys really love to play baseball. One might imagine what else in their lives could make them more happy. Rather than be intimidated by a staggering stat sheet or a hard-throwing and deep pitching staff, opponents may be mostly intimidated by a great sense of humor and a passion for a game that you cannot help but envy. Or maybe you might be intimidated by the silly mustaches these guys grow in time for tournament season where they moniker themselves as "Stache & Bash!"
--Stephen Boudreaux, President NWAMSBL
