Wind whipped through Steer Park Friday and with a potential playoff spot at stake, the Big Spring Steers’ baseball squad faced off against district leader Abilene Wylie (6-1), treating fans to yet another exciting outing.
Unfortunately, the Steers were on the short end of a 2-1 ball game despite Adam Franco’s brilliant performance from the mound.
Franco recorded a loss but allowed only one Bulldog hit, striking out six batters. The hit that went through, however, was a two-run blast in the top of the fourth, propelling Wylie to a hard-fought victory.

“This year, one of the big things is we are bringing back the 10K run,” Ron Alton, state park manager, said.

The 10K run had been put on the back burner the past few years, but with the support of volunteers and other planning details, it will resume for 2012.
