Fastpitch book coming together

Commentary by Myra Bean

It has come to my attention that speculation surrounding the South Panola Lady Tiger commemorative book is under discussion on the website.

I apologize. I have not followed the dialog for the book or I would have tried to answer some questions.

Some people have speculated The Panolian is only out to make money (My boss says he wishes he was making money on this) and others accuse and that the book will not cover the teams before the last two years.

I never said that. However, the book’s main concentration will be the two state championship teams. We, on The Panolian staff, are always cognizant of the history of Panola County, and sports have a rich and varied history in this county.

I did not know what was or was not going to be included and only one person has ever asked me what the book would contain.

Since I have been working on the book, I have included the early years of the fastpitch program at South Panola using the annals of The Panolian as a guideline.

The book is shaping up and I hope that all members who have ever played on a South Panola fastpitch team will be proud.
