Doubleday Field is in Cooperstown down the street from the Hall of Fame.  First baseball field ever

Huh?

I should say, the first ever baseball field created within the modern rules of the game.  Of course, there will always be dispute and there are those who believe Wahconah Park in Pittsfield is the birthplace of the modern game.

Incidentally the team is much improved this year and we added three good pitchers. I assume that'll put us in the the top four teams in the league now...

Should be a great year.

Throws low 90's and lots of strikes.  Business just picked up and it's looking good for us this year.

He's going to be head-and-shoulders better than any other pitcher in this league.

UNO's got Alabama-Huntsville this weekend and then St. Cloud and Wisconsin the next two weeks.  Probably can't make it this weekend, but which of those two would be the better game to check out.  also, Denver comes in at the end of Feb.

When I see UNO, I think University of New Orleans, and then I remember how their team got shafted and I get sad.

After a win on Friday, we're 5-1 on the year and have only allowed seven runs in our six games.  Four shutouts so far and one game where we only allowed one run.

Just beat the defending champs 4-0.

Sounds like someone is calling a good game behind the dish.

I'd love to take the credit, but it may have something to do with the starting pitcher in three of those four shutouts had pitched in AAA with the Dodgers organization.

Now 6-1 and have only allowed a combined 7 runs on the year after our latest 11-0, one-hit shutout.  First place since the last undefeated team just lost.

Ok, it's not baseball, but my rec league sand vball team won our 3rd straight league championship tonight.  Had to brag a bit.  Played the Rizzo way.  Solid defense and serving and take advantage our opportunities and tried to make the other team's sloppy play work against them.  Fun night.

Let me guess, we still have to have that awful stars and stripes patch design, only this time done with grease paint on the buttocks?

Yep.  And just think... with blue911 as our new starting catcher, there's a really big "canvas" on which to draw.  :lol:
