It was also the last state to honour Martin Luther King with his Day.
I suppose it should come as no surprise that it is also the state where high school A refused to play high school B in the state championship baseball game coz high school A gots a girl playing second base.
azcentral.com reports that "Paige Sultzbach is a freshman at Mesa Preparatory Academy, which had been scheduled to play Our Lady of Sorrows Academy in tonight's Arizona Charter Athletic Association state championship at Phoenix College."
Our Lady of Sorrows forfeited the state championship because one of the players, Ms. Sulzback, is a girl. "Our Lady of Sorrows is run by the U.S. branch of the Society of Saint Pius X, a group of conservative, traditionalist priests who disagree with the reforms of the Vatican II Council in the 1960s and broke with the Catholic Church in the 1980s."
I could be wrong but I don't think that baseball is even mentioned in the Bible nor is it referenced in Vatican I or Vatican II. Furthermore I think that Our Lady of Sorrows may be run by a bunch of crazyites.
Well, at least she gets her ring.
