The Big Bang Rockfest in April rocked Pittsburg’s annual fireworks budget to the tune of $10,600, more than doubling the total raised by the event the year before. However, other donations have been slower to arrive, and with the fireworks order deadline quickly approaching this year’s show is looking smaller than usual.

Pittsburg Post 64 played late into Father’s Day, closing out the Pittsburg Legion/Fort Scott CC Classic at JayCee Ballpark with a Sunday night doubleheader against the Mount Vernon 39ers and the KC Yankees.
Post 64 played like two different teams, losing 8-1 to Mount Vernon and winning 10-3 against the KC Yankees for the split.
“The first game, we were just really flat and had no energy,” Post 64 head coach Mike Watt said. “We had no energy at all and it showed up in the game. We weren’t mentally ready to play. We weren’t very good in that first game.
“We’ve talked to them a lot about it’s easy to have energy when things are going well. You’ve got to have the energy even when things aren’t going well and that’s how you fight through those tough periods. We’re a very talented team. We’re a veteran team. We just have got to work on our energy level. If we go into Omaha with not much energy, it’s going to be tough to win. We’re going to have to be focused and ready to go.”
