The popular vote: New Franklin baseball team lands six players on All-State squad
New Franklin already made its mark in program history, winning a school-record 21 baseball games this spring. The Bulldogs maintained a No. 1 ranking in Class 1 for much of the 2015 season too.
Although New Franklin’s season ended with a loss to Atlanta in the state quarterfinals, the Bulldogs did something this year that no other team accomplished.
Six New Franklin players made their way onto the Class 1 All-State team, as selected by the Missouri High School Baseball Coaches Association. No other Class 1 program had more than five on the list.

Driftwood Outdoors: When fishing with kids, make it all about them
In every family, individuals take on roles. I am the fishing uncle. It’s tough, but someone has to do it.
I fished a lot with my uncle when I was a kid. He had a bass boat. Looking back it wasn’t anything special, just an old Glastron with a beat-up 75 horsepower Johnson, but to a 12-year-old boy who lived to fish, it might as well have been a rocket ship.
