Governor of Oklahoma, Mary Fallin, Declares October 1-3, 2015 as 'Horn Showcase Days'

In its 51st year, the organization is bringing one of their annual events back home. The 16th Annual Horn Showcase will be held October 1-3, 2015 at Great Plains Coliseum in Lawton. This historic eventâ€™s journey back to its birthplace has led Governor Fallin to declare October 1-3, 2015 â€˜Horn Showcase Daysâ€™ in the state of Oklahoma.

OHLENDORF SAVING BULLPEN AS 'BLOWOUT' CLOSER
Veteran right-hander has 1.29 ERA in 8 games this month
OAKLAND -- The Rangers are finally getting from pitcher Ross Ohlendorf what they hoped for in Spring Training. In doing so, the veteran right-hander has carved out his own niche in the bullpen.
Ohlendorf has morphed into a combination of middle reliever and "blowout" closer. When the Rangers need a game finished and it is not a save situation, they call on Ohlendorf and hold off using closer Shawn Tolleson.
Ohlendorf has done that three times since being called up from Triple-A at the beginning of September, including Wednesday night in a 10-3 win over the Athletics.
