Firebirds are ready to fire it up

FARMINGTON – With their first game only 15 days away, the Farmington Firebirds are in preparation of starting their first season with a flying start. This year the Kitty League is a go. Rumors had it that already one of the four teams had dropped from the program, but the rumor was false.

“Sikeston had some problems in getting organized, but they got it going okay and we will be a four-team league,” said Firebirds manager Hal Loughary when questioned about the rumor.

“Right now we are looking for some special support,” added Loughary. “We’ll need people helping us out in various ways.”

The Firebirds will be composed of college players from the area and will start the season on June 9 at Sikeston. Loughary will have Murphy Thomas and Stan Walden assisting him in coaching the team. Their first home game will be on June 12 when they return to play at Wilson Rozier ballfield.


The Firebirds will be holding a special meeting for anyone who would like to support the team by helping out this season at the Plank Road Inn on Thursday morning at 7 a.m.


The Firebirds will hold an inter-squad game and open house on June 6 at 6 p.m. and the public is invited to come and see what the team is like and meet the players and coaches in person.
