OBCA announces inaugural All-State games rosters
Oklahoma high school baseball coaches want the top players to play in the All-State games, so they acted.
The Oklahoma Baseball Coaches Association announced Friday the rosters for their inaugural All-State games, breaking away from the traditional games played in late July as part of the Oklahoma Coaches Association All-State week.
Three games will be played Sunday, June 2, at Enid’s David Allen Memorial Ballpark beginning at 1 p.m. There will be no OCA All-State baseball games.
“We were losing a lot of players who would report early to college or get drafted,” OBCA vice president and Enid coach Brad Gore said. “This way kids are still in shape from season and we avoid those conflicts.”
