High School Baseball: West Harrison vs. Long Beach
Much like certain college organizations have what’s called ‘dead week’ right before final exams begin, the same could be said about high school baseball and softball on the Gulf Coast. District play is all wrapped up, but the playoffs don’t start until later this week, but then there’s West Harrison and Long Beach. Long Beach wins 14-2. That’s the first district loss of the entire season for the Hurricanes.

Professional boxing coming to Biloxi
This weekend, professional boxing is coming to Biloxi with plans to stick around for a while if all goes according to plan. On Saturday, the IP Hotel and Casino will be hosting a show featuring seven fights headlined by heavyweight boxer Michael Hunter in the main event. Boxing Promoter Ron Weathers says he hopes to turn this into a monthly showcase with future sights set on hosting matches at the Mississippi Coast Coliseum. Even after several decades in the business, Weathers says there’s nothing like the trill of a live fight while Hunter sees this bout as an opportunity to work towards his ultimate goal. "Hopefully I'll be getting a fight with my stable mate Deontay Wilder and we can link up again cause he's a heavyweight champ. We were stable mates in 2008 for the 2008 Olympics in Beijing." Weathers said, “It's the excitement of the moment that gets you because it's two guys in there banging each other and it wakes you right up, believe me it does. When they start knocking fire from each other you start screaming one way or another, it gets you on the edge of your seat. It's not like wrestling, wrestling is just entertainment, but this is the real thing.” Weathers says tickets range anywhere from $20 to $50 plus fees and taxes with the doors opening at 6 p.m.
