MATTOON, Ill. – Byron Cox Post 72 took part in the Mattoon, IL, Wood Bat Firecracker Classic over the weekend, battling Mother Nature, and three of the toughest teams from Illinois. They would finish 1-2 on the weekend, and now stand at 10-6.
Cox was scheduled to have two games on Friday, one at 10AM and another at 2PM. However, Mother Nature prevailed that day as all of the tournament games were cancelled. So, for the second week in a row, Post 72 had to juggle pitching plans to accommodate.
