The Seasoned Players League for July 16 kicked off with Bean’s Evergreen Disposal going up against Mueller Builders. It might have been an exciting game but no stats were turned in and rumor has it that Mueller Builders won the game. I did hear Bean’s manager Ted that they didn’t play well.

Moving swiftly to the game on the New Diamond where at least a score was turned in between Chad’s Auto and Strobes Garage, a final score has been reported. Drum role please...Strobes Garage 4 and Chad’s Auto 3.

There are stats like crazy between Louie/Werner and Village Pharm. Louie/Werner pounded out 19 hits, lead by Anna, Wedge and Bart who all went three for three at the “coal-hole cover.” Tom “Wedge” Bauman, “the bob and weave knuckle baller,” was the winning pitcher who had some stellar defense behind him with Jim “The Ageless Wonder” Heidmann, Dave “I’m not Rennie” Lindner, Todd Diethelm and Mark “Anna” Schroeder maneuvering the infield and pulling off three double killings. Village Pharm mustered only five hits with Jake Knapmiller and Ace going two for two and Keith Baum one for two.

The final score was Louie/ Werner 11 and Village Pharm 0.

The next match-up was Werner Insurance and Round of Mulligans which has always been a great battle. Mark might not show up this year as he surprised the league with a guest appearance. Mark tripped on a weed while going to first base and, while licking his wounds, he managed to crawl to first base safely. Star player Ryan took a digger rounding this while possibly pulling or straining his hamstring. The team player will show at next week’s games for moral support. The champs did recover well from the gruesome loss last week. The stellar play by the Werner third basemen warranted the new nickname of “Mr. Hoover” because he sucked up everything that was hit in his direction. The Mullies did manage 14 hits and left a runner on base in every inning. The team hit parade was lead by Terry “El Presidente” and Korny “The Sultan of Swat” went three for three with Bean “I need my bat taped” going three for four with a twin bagger. Heath “Fruit of my Loins” had threerun inside-the-parkers. Chewy ‘’Hey Culligan Man”and Scott “I have a house for sale” went hit-less. Final score was Werner Insurance 11 and Round of Mulligans 6.

The night cap was Landmark Bar and Edgar Lanes. Landmark actually scored before the fourth inning. Bill led off the game with a single that lead to five runs in the first inning. Four runs in the fifth put the game out of reach. Landmark’s 18 hits was led by Nate who was three for three and scored three runs. Butch was two for two. Camouche doubled but after a protest staged by Roy it was ruled a foul ball; he still managed to go three for three plus by popular dugout demand having two errors. His teammates thought his glove was made by Everlast. Defensively, Edgar Lanes had several nice plays including Bob the Vet catching a line drive back to the mound. Matt, Little Joe, and Crazy Legs Chuck all had nice running catches in the outfield. Offensively, even with 12 guys, the Lanes mustered up only five hits, leaving four on base. Little Joe was two for two. Bob the Vet, Big Joe and Bomber Bob each had one hit. Final score was Landmark Bar 11, Edgar Lanes 0.
