The oversized staff at Skordle put some exhaustive research into this year's slowpitch softball state tournament, which take place Tuesday and Wednesday at ASA Hall of Fame Stadium.
Take these picks to the bank because THEY ARE MONEY:
Red Oak - Because they didn’t win fast-pitch and they were runner-up in basketball. They’re due.
Binger-Oney - Two words: Layne Smith. She’s got a really cool family member.
Caddo - Won 20 of 22 with only losses to 6A No. 1 Broken Bow. Two wins over Tushka this season.
Dale - Hasn’t lost to anyone 4A or below this year.
Ft. Gibson - Makes a Cinderella run to the title to cap the basketball/slowpitch year for titles.
Broken Bow - One loss all year. Good enough for me.
Red Oak - Make it a three-peat for the Eagles.
Shattuck - A football powerhouse now becomes a slowpitch dynasty, too.
Rattan - Only two losses since the start of April. Good enough for me.
Dale - When I think of slowpitch softball, I think of Dale.
Perkins-Tryon - Top two teams in 5A were ousted in regional play, thus opening the door for No. 4 Perkins to grab the title.
Broken Bow - Reigning 6A champion has played has played 32 games this year. The Savages have been limited to single-digit run production in only two of those contests — all others 10 runs or more, including 11 with 20 or more runs.
