  1. The Weatherford pitcher could be out of baseball after this crazy tackle on the North Central batter.

    1. @Baseballer I saw that. Think this is the end of any discipline he gets or do you think further punishment will be given?

  2. Remember God loves you♥️..
    John 3:16
    For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life.
    Please repent, change your life around and live for Him.
    He is coming back soon 🤗🎊..
