For Chads, Rick opened the inning with a single. Chads took the lead and held off a seventh inning threat when the Mullies had one out with runners on first and second but pulled off a double play to end the game. Final score Chad’s Auto 6 and Round of Mulligans 4.

A few more names to be added to the pioneers of the Seasoned Players: Marvelous Marv Knetter who played for the Firemen and was one of the best left handed hitters on the team, Randy Hoenisch, Chucky “Margolis” Krebsbach and Steve Hack. Sorry for the memory lapse.

There are no games being played this Thursday, July 2.


mond in what turned out to be a very interesting game.

Not sure how it all happened but it wasn’t a good ending of a pretty good game for Werner Insurance. Dave led the team with four hits and two runs scored. Werner’s scored 10 runs in the third to have a comfortable lead but that slipped away in the seventh giving up seven runs. By the second inning Werners had a comfortable lead at 11-0.

In the fourth, Landmark got things rolling. After two outs the Gobbler got things going with a hit. It led to nine more consecutive hits and nine runs.

Werners got three in the sixth and Landmark one, score 14-9. With one out Landmark got it rolling again, nine hits in a row and six runs. Rich drove in the winner when the throw to home was late with Darrell hustling all the way.

Landmark had 29 hits which might be a league record. The five thru 11 batters were on base 23 out of 28 at bats. Fleabag and Roy led the way going four for four. Gobbler, Andy, John and Shanny went three for four. John and Roy scored Next matched up two perennial power houses, Strobes Garage and Louie/Werner.

It was great to see Jerry Werner give moral support to his team. The stats turned in were as depressing as the actual stats. Louie/Werner scored two runs in the first and only had nine stinking hits. “We Lost.”

No stats turned in for Strobes Garage and yet another case of writer’s block. Final score Strobes Garage 5 and Louie/Werner 2.

The night cap was Round of Mulligans and Chad’s Auto.

In a quest for a undefeated season, the Mullies gave it a stellar effort. The Mullies managed only 11 hits and stranded eight. The defense played another excellent game by only allowing Chads to score in only two innings. Some bad hops and a few solid hits were the downfall.

John “The knee brace man” and Heath “Fruit of my loins” both went two for three with Heath ripping a triple only to be stranded on third. Bean A baby boy, Lincoln LeRoy Socha, was born on May 20, 2020, to Trent and Torrie Socha of Wausau.
