Lonoke’s Gooden, Spears invited to baseball classic

Former Lonoke Jackrabbits baseball players Blake Gooden and Garrett Spears have been invited to play in the Heartland Baseball Classic next week in Norman, Okla.

Each year, the tournament is a host to eight states committed to bringing the top 20 players from each state, including Arkansas, Arizona, Colorado, Georgia, Maryland, Ohio, Oklahoma and Texas.

This is for players who have signed with colleges or who have been drafted professionally. Gooden and Spears signed with Neosho Community College in the spring.
