Carl Albert plans Make-A-Wish fundraiser

Carl Albert's baseball team will host a fundraiser for Kyle Staggs, a local child involved with the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Staggs will throw out the first pitch at Thursday's game against Dale, the defending Class 2A state champion. He'll also be a part of Carl Albert's team that day.

All of the gate proceeds from the 4 p.m. game will be used to send Staggs and his family to Disney World.

Both teams enter the game at No. 1 in their class. Carl Albert won the title in 5A last season.

As a junior, Batson had 26 catches for 598 yards, while averaging 13.3 yards on 26 rushing attempts. He accounted for 13 total touchdowns and was among the state leaders with nine interceptions.
