  • Tigers roar from behind for title

    The Rockwood Tigers had to fight from behind in order to beat Coalfield, 18-7, Wednesday night in the title game of the District 3 baseball tournament at Brillo Miller Sports Complex.

    Coalfield struck first.

    “You have to tip your hat to Coalfield,” Rockwood Coach Jake Witter said. “To be out in 81 degree weather to play hard as they did says something.

    “They could have just laid down, but they came out fighting and swinging the bats.”
