Host, NHSCA Sports Hour

Broken Arrow (Oklahoma) head baseball coach Shannon Dobson will join Trish Hoffman and me on the June 5th NHCSA Sports Hour.

In mid-May Dobson's Tigers (36-2) won their second state baseball championship by beating Owasso 4-0.  Coming into the game, Owasso was ranked #1 in the country by Baseball America and riding a 33-game win streak.  The Rams were also going after their 9th title in 14 years.

Broken Arrow captured the title behind the strong right-arm of Archie Bradley, who is considered a possible first-round pick in next month's Major League Baseball Amateur Draft.  The 6-4 Bradley, who throws in the mid-90's threw a two-hitter with 14 strikeouts.
