Top Sports Moment #5

Thursday June 7, will now live in Jasper lore forever...

On that Thursday evening, the Jasper Bulldogs won their first ever baseball state championship, blasting Liberty Eylau, 14-4, and shutting down Red Sox draftee Will Middlebrooks.

The Bulldogs did not have a single major league draftee, and only a handful of their team will play in college, they were the quinessential team in every facet of the game, and one of the best 3A teams to ever play in the state of Texas...

So good in fact..that June 7th is Jasper baseball day in the city of Round Rock...

The Bulldogs finished with an amazing 33-7 record on the year, and for their amazing run to the schools first ever state baseball championship, the Jasper Bulldogs have earned the 5th place on our top ten moments in East Texas from 2007.
