Jack Stallard pumps up the Pump Jacks
Kilgore, TX (KETK) Jack Stallard is the Sports Editor of the Longview News-Journal.
He went to the home opener of the East Texas Pump Jacks.
Stallard talked with KETK Sports Director Danny Elzner about the game.
"Great atmosphere. The defending Texas Collegiate League champions played their first home game. Big crowd at driller Park, probably the best place in East Texas to watch a baseball game. The Pump Jacks pulled out a 5-4 win. Just an exciting game and what you've come to expect from this team. The Pump Jacks play an exciting brand of baseball. It's a lot of fun for the fans. You don't have to be a baseball fan to enjoy the Pump Jacks. There's so much going on at the ballpark. It's true baseball. You're going to see a lot of these kids playing in the big leagues. They play tonight at 7:00. Thursday and Friday they host Victoria in a rematch of last year's TCL championship series. There will be fireworks at the end of the game on Friday night. You should catch a ball game at Driller Park."
