With three weeks left for the Seasoned Players this year, the League had a short schedule this past Thursday night. Edgar Lanes had to go to a mandatory bowling meeting and cancel their game with the Village Pharm.

The game on the new diamond paired Werner Insurance and Mueller Builders. We finally got a ransom demand on Dizz’s kidnapping. The demand was found hanging on the Mullies Ancient Hurler’s door with a digit that we are assuming that previously belonged to Dizz. The demand is for a ransom amount of $10.80 and with only a collection so far of $3.26, the league will be hard pressed to come up with the demand. The question was asked who the cheapskates were that only put a penny in the pot only to find out that everyone threw in a penny. We did get word that the local Republican Party offered to make up the difference for the ransom. The exchange is to be made on the last night of league ball on Aug. 20.

Werner’s got the sticks going with right players having multiple hits. Chad and Mike C led the team with four hits each. Scoring two in the first inning to put a little pressure on the opponent, Mueller Builders answered back and went up 5-2. That didn’t scare the Werner team from taking the victory. Final score was Werner’s 13 and Mueller Builders 9. Quote of the night came from Mueller Builders team leader Rick with bases loaded: “You should probably just walk me so you only give up one run.” A true seasoned player.

Next on deck was the powerhouse team of Strobe’s Garage and the Round of Mulligans. Strobes struggled in the first three innings only scoring three runs against the Mullies Old Ace Jason. They finally got the bats going hitting darters, daisy cutters, a double and a triple. Strobe’s came to the conclusion that they will miss facing the Irish Ace. For the Mullies, it was old jersey night which didn’t improve the hitting department. The banjo’s didn’t even need to be re-tuned after the game with a meager five hit display. Justin was throwing “cuspidor sliders” that had the Mullies batters befuddled. Terry “El Presidente” went two for two and Bean “Mr. Utility Player” went one for one. Final score was-Strobe’s Garage 14 and The Mullies 0.

The next game pitted Louie/ Werner and the undefeated Landmark Bar. Landmark borrowed Round of Mulligans’ gloves. Nothing stayed in them in the outfield or the infield. Secondly, Landmark didn’t string together 9 or 10 hits, hence their first loss. Landmark had 15 hits with Bill and Mark “The Gobbler” going three for four and scoring three runs. Camouche and Twig were two for three and scored 3 runs apiece. Timmy Schmidt was called up from “AA” Jerkwater to fill in for the four-wheeling Darrell. Louie/Werner won a game of attrition by outlasting Landmark 10 to 6. Louie/Werner had 11 hits with Jake Knetter and Dave Lindner going three for four at the plate to lead the team. Tom Bauman was the winning pitcher on the hill.

The nightcap was Bean’s Evergreen Disposal and Chad’s Auto Repair. Bean’s had no stats. Chad’s Auto had 22 hits with three in-the-park homers by Eddie, Dennis and Cooter. Chad’s picked up sub Chewy “Hey Culligan Man” who was the pinch runner for three runs. It’s been along time he crossed the dish that many time. Final score was Chad’s Auto Repair 13 and Bean’s Evergreen Disposal 6.
