"Matagorda Clippers: History of a local team that played across Texas" By Simon DeSoto

The Matagorda Clippers fast-pitch softball team in 1975.

   The Matagorda Clippers Men’s Fast Pitch Softball team was formed in or around 1948, just after WWII. 
   The team was organized by Captain Bob Parker, owner of Matagorda Shell Company, which, in later years, became Parker Brothers. 
   The name, Matagorda Clippers, was selected due to the nautical theme with Matagorda, at one time, being the largest port in Texas. 
   Also, organizer Bob Parker was an important part of the marine industry on the Texas gulf coast, thus the theme for the team name. 
   In the early years, many of Capt. Parker’s employees, along with local Matagorda men, made up the team. 
   In the later years, the majority of players were always from Matagorda, with a few area players helping round out the team. 
   Parker also made sure that the team had uniforms in the early years and Matagorda County supplied the land for the softball field.

"Pierce takes TISD oath of office" by: Jessica Shepard

  Newly appointed Tidehaven ISD trustee Mike Pierce took his oath of office at the regular board meeting, Thursday, Feb. 25.
   He is filling the board vacancy left by Lee Edward Pierce, who died in November.
   Pierce is a Tidehaven graduate and former head coach and athletic director for the district.
   He will hold the board position until the next board election in November 2022, where he would have to file as a candidate and win to carry out the end of Lee Pierce’s term.
   Pierce cited a family history of serving as a school board member, including his great-grandmother, grandfather, and cousin Lee Edward.
   Board members also discussed and approved just over $52,000 in door and window replacements, fan installation, and other renovations to the old high school girl’s gym.
   Those expenses are part of a plan to renovate the building into an indoor training facility primarily for baseball and softball training.
