Guy Dossi / Union Democrat:Phil Coke delivers a pitch in the eighth inning Tuesday for the Stockton Ports.

From the beer batter and cheap tickets, to the dizzy bat race and expensive nachos, the Ports are a classic example of the minor leagues. They do, however, have something major in their mitts. Major League pitcher Phil Coke has joined the Ports until the A’s need his services in Oakland.

The Tuolumne County Aquatics swimmers have found the best way to beat the heat - stay in the pool. But by staying in the water, the swimmers have gotten faster and are setting the lanes on fire, and setting new standards.

The Sonora High School boys’ basketball program hosted the 2015 Wildcat Shooting Camp this week at Columbia College’s Oak Pavilion. 70 players from 6th to 12th grade took part in the five-day camp.

The camp motto was, “It’s more fun when you are a good shooter!” Dona gives direction Thursday during the shooting camp.
