“It gets out of control in a hurry. The adults did the best they could to control the atmosphere and I think they made the right decision of calling the game.”

Aylor was unavailable for comment Sunday.

Arlington Country Day coach Ron Dickerson accused Norman North of hurling racially charged insults toward his players.

“The racism has to stop,” Dickerson told the paper. “This can't keep going on. The game is baseball, not these antics.”

EDMOND NORTH FINISHES SECOND IN TOURNEY

Another Oklahoma team nearly brought home the championship trophy at the Tate Aggie Classic.

Defending Class 6A state champion Edmond North led 1-0 going into the seventh inning before Pensacola Washington scored a pair to claim an unlikely title.

Washington entered the tournament on an 11-game losing streak.

The Huskies put a pair of runners on base in the bottom of the inning but couldn't push the tying run across.

Edmond North was 3-0 in pool play, allowing just two runs in three games to advance to the finals.

Norman North was 3-0 before its double forfeit. Westmoore was 2-1. Jay, Tahlequah and Pryor each went 1-2 and Grove, Washington and Claremore were 0-3 in the tournament.
