I am sorry to report that we will not be publishing a Grand Slam special section as we did last season. That is something well beyond the control of me or anyone else in the sports or news departments. Don’t get me started.
We will still preview the Slam, but we’re having to take a different approach. The plan – subject to change – is to preview the Class 1A and 2A teams in Thursday’s paper, then the 3A, 4A and 5A teams in Friday’s paper. Hopefully space will allow for all the cool things we’re wanting to do.
So you won’t have just one thing you can carry around with you at the BancorpSouth Arena, but the info will be out there. Wall-to-wall coverage, baby.
