  • OKC Dodgers' Damon Berryhill named PCL Manager of Year

    Jacob Unruh | Updated: 8 min ago

    Oklahoma City Dodgers manager Damon Berryhill was named the Pacific Coast League Manager of the Year on Friday, two days after the team clinched a division championship. Berryhill, 51, is in his second season managing the Dodgers' Triple-A team. OKC currently leads the PCL with an 85-55 record. The win total is a team record with four games remaining. OKC will travel to Round Rock on Wednesday to open the playoffs. The Dodgers return for the final three games of the best-of-five series Friday, Sept. 11. Game 4 and Game 5 will only be played if necessary. Berryhill certainly earned the honor as the Dodgers used their 24th starting pitcher of the season Friday with Chris Anderson taking the mound against Memphis.

In a petition filed in Oklahoma County Court on Wednesday, Clark claims that his teammates scapegoated him when marijuana was found in his room, that Ford required him to take psychotropic drugs in order to practice with the team, and that he was hazed by former OSU guard Marcus Smart. "Additionally, defendants refused to release Stevie from OSU, thereby torpedoing any opportunity Steve had to rehabilitate himself at a Division I School," the petition states. "Various promises were made with regard to playing time and ensuring that Stevie made it to the next level. Travis Ford even promised Stevie a Camaro." Clark was a four-time state champion at Douglass High School and a major coup for the Cowboys in recruiting as one of the top recruits in Oklahoma in the Class of 2013. But the 5-foot-11 guard didn't even finish his freshman year at OSU. Clark was dismissed from the Cowboys basketball team in 2014 following an arrest on a complaint of "outraging public decency" in Stillwater. Prior to his dismissal, Clark was  suspended four games after being arrested for possession of marijuana in January of 2014, and was suspended in December of 2013 and sent home from the Old Spice Classic in Florida for undisclosed reasons.

    The exact details of why football officials did not show up at Star Spencer’s Carl Twidwell Stadium Thursday night for the Bobcats’ home opener against rival Millwood were still not entirely clear on Friday afternoon. Oklahoma City Public Schools administrators say the officials were notified in a phone conversation on Monday that the game was scheduled for Thursday night. A football officials’ representative says the crew leader was told in that phone conversation that the game would be Friday. “We ask our officials to communicate with the host school on Mondays. It’s my understanding that that took place,” said David Gore, area coordinator of

    Juliana Keeping,newsroom blog | Updated: 1 hr ago

    The saga of whether or not to allow a Ten Commandments monument on the Oklahoma Capitol lawn is over. Kidding. It's not over. Attorney General Scott Pruitt has indicated he will fight an Oklahoma Supreme Court decision that the monument violates the state constitution and must be removed. Over at the NewsOK Facebook page, reaction to this latest turn of the crank in the monument saga was a resounding face palm, along with questions on how much taxpayer money will go into the effort.   Oklahoma is rife with social ills that need fighting, too. The commenters pointed out a few of them. Here are a few suggestions for lawmakers and enforcers who might need a few handy dandy ideas on what to do

    Brandy McDonnell | Updated: 1 hr ago

    Oklahoma red dirt rockers The Damn Quails are celebrating the release today of their long-awaited sophomore album “Out of the Birdcage" via the band's own Swomp Fyst Records. The album is the follow-up to their 2011 debut “Down the Hatch,” which garnered them national acclaim, regional awards and success on the Americana charts. But the feathers started flying when the band got locked in a lawsuit with Chance Sparkman, formerly of 598 Recordings, the now-imploded label that released “Down the Hatch.” The drawn-out legal battle delayed the production and release of The Quails’ sophomore effort, which is finally taking flight in September. “It’s been four years,
