*****In the Ragsdale win over SWG, Ragsdale jumped in front early on a two-run home run by pitcher Billy Stone in the bottom of the second inning.

Southwest countered with a two-run homer by the Cowboys’ Andrew Madden to knot the score back up at 2-2 in the top of the third and the game stayed that way until Ben Fultz came through with an RBI double scoring Walt Spaks with what proved to be the game winner as Ragsdale claims the victory, 3-2 over SWG….

    Coach George O is working with the Kiser kids on many of these same things and he is trying to get the baseball fundamentals across to the kids at a younger age.

    Coach George can turn things around or he will die trying…..
