I remember how this baseball season began for us as a family: “Take Me Out to the Ball Game.” So now, the National Junior College Athletic Association Region 23 baseball playoffs are reaching the peak at Pearl River Community College in Poplarville, Mississippi. Our beloved Bengals won their first two games, making it look easy, in fact, on Wednesday and Friday, respectively. We’re the only undefeated team left standing in the double-elimination tournament with one game this evening to get through to play for the championship on Sunday afternoon. It’s lookin’ good!
At stake is a trip to the NJCAA World Series in Millington, Tennessee, week-after-next. If the #2 nationally-ranked Bengals stay on course, this branch of the Pulling clan will head up that a’way to USA Stadium for the big tournament.
So we’ll gather around the live radio feed again this evening on LSUE-TV, like we did last night, to learn the outcome. We’re fans.
