"Baseball is a crazy game."
Todd Stanley was pleased to see his offense fight back and tie things up in the middle of the game.
CALEDONIA -- Jantsen Glasgow didn't know the game was over.
CALEDONIA -- Forty pounds isn't a lot to an experienced powerlifter.
STARKVILLE -- Football always was an option for Colt Chrestman.
STARKVILLE -- Dakota Hudson and Austin Sexton aren't worried.
When Tony Silvestri wasn't racing his No. 24 Chevrolet S-10 Street Stock, he'd watch Super Late Models.
CALEDONIA -- Avery Pool admits she wasn't playing as good as she wanted to.
STARKVILLE -- When Chuck Friend got the chance to return to Starkville, he took it.

STARKVILLE -- Disgusted and downtrodden, the Mississippi State women's tennis team needed a boost.
The New Hope High School baseball team's self-inflicted wounds continued Tuesday against Saltillo. This time, there was more at stake than a district win. Leading 4-1 entering the fourth inning, New Hope committed four errors and surrendered four runs, all of which would proved too much to overcome in a 7-4 loss in a Mississippi High School Activities Association Class 5A, Region 2 matchup at Trojan Field.
MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- The No. 15 Ole Miss baseball team used three home runs and a strong pitching performance from freshman starting pitcher James McArthur in a 7-0 victory against Memphis on Tuesday evening at AutoZone Park.
STARKVILLE -- Although Cody Brown doesn't spend much time in Biloxi anymore, he knows how important baseball is to the city. Located on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, Biloxi has a lot to offer between water sports and casinos. Like many towns in Mississippi, high school football also is an important tradition, but baseball was pushed to the forefront last summer when the Biloxi Shuckers, the Double-A affiliate of the Milwaukee Brewers, played their first season in Brown's hometown. It was a welcome sight for Brown and Biloxi.
STARKVILLE -- Good pitching and near-perfect defense is a good formula to win close games. The Mississippi State softball team used a complete-game shutout from Alexis Silkwood to take a 4-0 victory against Southern Mississippi on Tuesday night at Nusz Park.
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- For the third-straight year, the Alabama football team's quarterback competition will carry into preseason camp. Returnees Cooper Bateman, Blake Barnett, and David Cornwell and freshman mid-year enrollee Jalen Hurts don't appear to have much separation in the battle to start. All struggled to get the ball into the end zone Saturday in the team's spring-ending A-Day scrimmage for the defending national champions. But they did play against what typically is one of the nation's top defenses.
STARKVILLE -- The question of who will be the Mississippi State football team's next quarterback remains unanswered. With Dak Prescott graduating and getting ready for the NFL draft, four players had a chance in spring practice to make an impression on coach Dan Mullen and an opportunity to win the job. But after a month of practice and the team's Maroon and White Spring game on Saturday, Mullen didn't name a starter or give any inclination there is a leader.
CARROLLTON, Ala. -- Preston Pogue and Jeff White have been playing together long enough that they know when the other one is going to have a good day. The good news for the Pickens Academy baseball team is when Pogue or White is having a good day, the other one usually is going to do just as well.
BOSTON -- Mississippi State football coach Dan Mullen finished the Boston Marathon with a time of 4 hours, 28 minutes, 35 seconds on Monday.
STARKVILLE -- The No. 11 LSU softball team used an eight-run fifth inning to beat Mississippi State 12-1 in five innings Sunday on Super Bulldog Weekend at Nusz Park. The victory helped the Tigers (32-13, 7-11 Southeastern Conference) win the three-game weekend series. A 5-2 victory in 12 innings late Saturday night gave LSU its first win of the weekend.
