Owasso, Broken Arrow to meet in St. John Battle of the Bats
Tulsa, Okla. (April 11, 2018) – Two of the state’s premier high school baseball programs will face off in the sixth annual St. John Battle of the Bats on Friday, April 20, at 7 p.m. The game, which switches home field each year, will be held at Stigall Field, 12901 E. 86th St. N., in Owasso.
“This is always a well-played and well-coached series,” said Zach Duffield, Owasso athletic director. “Folks that come out to see this game will not be disappointed with the level of baseball they get to watch.”
“Broken Arrow and Owasso have had a tremendous rivalry over the years, and both programs have a great deal of respect for each other,” said Ken Ellett, Broken Arrow athletic director. “We look forward to this game each year and our competitive fire will always be there to win it.”
