ALUMNI STREAK STOPS AT 1
The old timers win streak ended at 1 with the Sr team earning a hard fought win 10-7 at the TA baseball field last night. Losing pitcher Matt "Gopher Ball " Langston gave up his usual monster shot to the younger bunch, this time to deep left center unlike last years dinger over the trees in right field. Outfielders Ethan Haines and Conrad Smalley almost made great catches but their old legs just didn't have the pop.Dylan Powell brought back memories of his pitching by walking 7 people and then picking 3 of them off. Rookies Justin Dyer, Pierce Goodbread and Austin Randolph showed promise by making routine plays. JP Sanders and big brother Brenton are still hit machines. Drew Kellum and Grady Kelly showed why they will make great coaches. Cole Beck is still cute and Matt Reid missed the game as he was having his hair styled.
The old refrain "wait till next year" was heard as the old guys walked into the sunset!
Thanks to all who played , it's a real treat to see how much you guys love the game.
