H.W. Byers wins two vs. Potts Camp
This would be the first game of the 2008 season for the reigning champions of the 2A division. The Lady Lions were going up against the Lady Cardinals of Potts Camp. The Lady Cardinals were playing in their fourth contest with a record of 2-1.
There is an amusing story by Charles Dudley Warner entitled “How I Killed A Bear.” One reading the story could very easily make the analogy between certain parts of the adventure to the odyssey of the Tampa Bay Rays in the Major Leagues. By now everyone has heard that the Bays dropped the “Devil” from their name. I won’t speculate on this because I have not read, seen, nor heard any rationale for this. Perhaps the “Devil made them do it?”
