Every spring individuals celebrate their mothers on Mother’s Day. It has evolved from a day to honor mothers to one that recognizes all special women. Therefore, if there is a woman in one’s life who isn’t a biological mother — but special nonetheless — Mother’s Day can be a time to tell her how much she is appreciated.
And that’s not only talking about the District 5 Big League baseball team based here.
It’s a win for the entire city as the 2011 Big League Southwest Baseball Tournament Regional Championship is held at J.C. Love Field in Pat Patterson Park on the Louisiana Tech campus.
North Louisiana-based District 5 will take on Texas East in a 5 p.m. contest today with a trip to the Big League World Series in Easley, S.C. at stake. Unbeaten in the tournament, District 5 has to win one of a potential two games to make their sixth straight trip to the Big League World Series. If Texas East should win tonight’s opener, then a second and final game would follow around 7 p.m.
