Seasoned Players

Last Thursday was a perfect night to kick off the fortieth year of the Seasoned Players League. The seasoned opener first matched up Edgar Lanes and Round of Mulligans. Round of Mulligans started the game hitting, scoring three runs in the top of the first. Edgar Lanes’ bats were cold, as they only got two hits in the bottom of the first. This pattern continued for the rest of the game. The Lanes had six hits for the game and did not score any runs. Adam, Little Joe, Tom and Russ all had hits for Lanes. The Mullies played like they were in midseason form, which in the past years mid-season form wasn’t all that spectacular. That fact was not true on Thursday as the Mullies blasted 20 hits, two doubles and a triple. Bean and El Presidente Terry went three for three with Terry having a double and a triple and needed oxygen after both. Korney “The Sultan of Swat” and Heath “Fruit of my loins” went three for four with Heath having a double. John and Mike “The Premium Man” were two for three, and Scott “I have a house for sale” was two for four. The Old Irishman was the only one not getting on base. The Mullies left 10 runners on base and for about half an hour were in first place by themselves, something not heard of in modern day sports. Final score Mullies 12 and Edgar Lanes 0.

The game on the new diamond paired Landmark Bar and Village Pharm. The Village Pharm had 14 hits with John Peterlik going two for four with a HR, Jason Schilling three for three. Jake Knapmiller, Dave Smith, Zach Paul and Greg Streit went two for three with way too many LOB. After giving up a shot to Peterlik that went to the old Whey Plant scoring two more runs, Landmark settled down. Landmark scored two in the third and three in the fourth and held on for the victory on the the inaugural “new diamond.” Cody, Nat and Fleabag had two hits each. Andy played his first slow pitch game. Fleabag had a triple (yes, Fleabag...hell is freezing over). Mark “The Gobbler” Weiler got called up from AAA Holway and went two for three and gobbled up the final out at third. Final Landmark 5 and Village Pharm 4.

The next game was Bean’s Evergreen Disposal and Strobes in a squeaker. Lee Weisenburger had a walk off single with runners on first and second. This was Lee’s first game with Strobes Garage and hopefully he can hold up his big ego the rest of the year. No stats turned in by Beans. Final score Strobes 4 and Beans 3.

Chad’s Auto and Werner Insurance were next on the diamond. The bats were cold for Chad’s till the sixth inning, when Wayne started the rally. Chads put seven on the board with Jeff “Show me your Red Card” Stoudt going four for four. Werner’s scored first with one run in the second and then with two more runs in the third with Mike C smashing a two run double. All went down hill from there when Chad’s Auto scored seven runs in the later innings to make the final score 3-7 Chad’s Auto. Victory by all with no injuries after the first night!

The night cap was Louie/ Werner and Mueller Builders. Tom Bauman hurled a three hitter giving up his first hit in the fourth inning for the victory. Louie/Werner pounded out 18 hits led by Roy Hobbs, Anna Schroeder, Eddie Thurs and Bart Lehman who all collected three hits a piece. With Dizz on the DL there were no stats, no interesting tidbits or humorous anecdotes about the Mueller Builder team mates. The final score was Louie/Werner 11 and Mueller Builders 1.

There are a few more names to be added to the pioneers of the Seasoned Players: Dennis “Curly” Halvorsen, Mike Huebsch, Gary Stencil and Dan Johnson.
