Congrats To Local 4A And 5A Baseball Teams

It may be something in the Jackson County water. Or it may be just that willingness to do whatever it takes to win. But one thing is certain, two Jackson County baseball teams have won state titles in the past week.

On Saturday, East Central High won the 4A title, the team's first championship since 1981. And on Tuesday, Ocean Springs won the 5A title, its first since 1982. Both teams have made their respective communities proud.

Hundreds of fans attended the games, cheering their hometown teams to victory on the diamond. And both teams shined brightly as they took home the titles. But what's even more important is the fact that both teams demonstrated class and grace in victory, crediting their teammates, coaches and fans.  And that is what sports is all about. East Central and Ocean Springs, we salute your great accomplishment.

That's our opinion, we would like to hear yours. Email your thoughts to
