FOFC - Manager Update

I continue to read and discover that my assumptions on starting pitchers was correct, Maddux tonight and Martinez tomorrow. Of course the Late 20s could change that, they have other arms they can go to like Smoltz, Eckersly, and Glavine, but I'm guessing they stick with their guns. What to do about tonight's game? I need to check with Howser to see how Treacy did at third during infield practice, I missed that yesterday. I was on a conference call with the team owner.

FOFC - Manager Update

I arrrive at the ballpark, head into my office. On my way, I stick my head into Howser's office and say, "Dick, come by my office in a minute, I got something to ask you."

"I'll be by in 5 minues."

"That'd be great, it'll give me time to dress out."

I head to my office and start putting on my uniform. I'm almost completely dressed out when Howser walks in.

"What's up Benton?" he asks.

As I tie my shoes I say, "I asked Treacy to take balls at third last night, how'd he do?"

Howser rolls his eyes, "Well he survived."

"That good?" I ask as I begin looking around for my hat.

"It wasn't pretty. I don't think he fielded anything cleanly. He's probably pretty black and blue this morning."

"So playing him at third isn't a good idea?"

"I wouldnt' recommend it unless we have the plague or something and he's all you got left."

I look up from my search and give him a quizical look.

"OK he's better than that, but as long as Palmer and Fouts are healthy, even if they aren't hitting you have to play one of them. If you put Treacy over their he could kill us defensively."

I nod, "That's what I wanted to know. I'm sorry to hear that, that would have given me a spot where Treacy could have stolen some at bats."

Still looking around, "Have you seen my hat?"

"I saw one on the table outside your office, did you leave it there last night?"

"I thought I left it on my desk," I say as I head that way. I look at the hat and sure enough it's mine. I put it on and say, "So who should we play at 3rd tonight?"

"I don't know. It's pretty much a toss up."

I start scratching my head, "I was thinking of giving Palmer another start, but Fouts can bat left against the right handed pitcher...." I stop talking.

Howser looks at me funny. "You ok," he querries?

I take my hat off, and smell the inside of it, I rub my head and feel a slighty greasy substance. "I think I know why my hat was out here.," I say as I quickly duck back into my office and head for my private bathroom.

Howser walks behind me starting to laugh, guessing at what just transpired. As he walks through my office door, he looks back down into the lockerroom and sees several relief pitchers high-fiving and laughing. He walks into the bathroom and sees me attempting to wash my forehead off with soap.

"Got something in your hat?" he asks with a huge smirk. "Guess some of the guys are bored."

I laugh, "I guess so, now get out, My head is on fire and I'm going to have to get in a shower to get all this mess off."

Satchel Paige(2-0) pitched well enough to earn the win. He allowed 10 hits and 5 walks in 7 innings. Left Outs made it exciting in the 9th, but they were unable to push the needed runs across. Webster McDonald got the save, his 2nd. Ferguson Jenkins(2-1) was the loser. 'It wasn't my best outing, but I'll take the win' Paige said. [1]NL PRE WWII AT JAPANESE LEAGUE Pre-Nationals... 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 - 1 6 0 HOF Players..... 1 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 - 2 7 0 Win:Kaneda(1-2) Loss:Hubbell(2-1) Save:Sawamura(1st) Homeruns- I.Harimoto(1st), S.Nagashima(4th) In a game for the baseball purist, Masaichi Kaneda(1-2) and Carl Hubbell(2-1) squared off in a tense pitching duel, Japanese League HOF Players finally emerged victorious over NL Pre WWII club, 2 to 1. Kaneda looked very much in control throughout the night. He allowed just 5 hits and 1 walk in 8 innings. After the 3rd inning, neither team was able to score. Eiji Sawamura was credited with his 1st save. [1]NL POST WWII AT NEGRO LEAGUE II Post-Nationals.. 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 - 1 4 0 Twos............ 0 2 1 1 0 0 3 0 - 7 11 0 Win:Mathis(2-0) Loss:Marichal(3-1) Homeruns- J.Wilson(2nd), L.Santop(3rd), P.Hill(2nd) Verdell Mathis took a no-hitter into the 6th inning at Shadowball Stadium as the Negro League II Twos beat the NL Post WWII team 7 to 1. Mathis(2-0) contributed a very nicely pitched game. He didn't give up much, just 3 hits and 7 walks in 8 and 2/3 innings reducing his ERA from 2.25 to 1.82. The left-handed Mathis had his no-hit bid broken up by Roy Campanella who singled with two outs in the 6th inning. Negro League II out-hit NL Post WWII for the game, 11 hits to 4. Juan Marichal(3-1) was the losing pitcher. He served up 3 gopher balls in 7 innings. [1]TURN OF CENTURY AT DEAD BALL ERA Centurions...... 1 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 1 - 3 10 0 Ghosts.......... 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 - 2 9 1 Win:Waddell(1-2) Loss:Chesbro(1-2) Save:Willis(2nd) The Turn of Century Centurions nipped the Dead Ball Era Ghosts 3 to 2 at Deadball Park in a hard fought contest. Dead Ball Era was unable to claim the lead after Turn of Century went ahead in the top of the 6th inning scoring a single run on 2 hits. Turn of Century totaled 10 on the night. Rube Waddell(1-2) went 8 and 1/3 innings allowing 2 runs for the victory. Waddell got help from Vic Willis who earned his 2nd save. Jack Chesbro(1-2) was charged with the loss. [1]AL PRE WWII AT CARIBBEAN Pre-Americans... 0 0 2 0 3 4 0 1 1 - 11 18 0 Estrellas....... 0 1 0 0 1 0 0 2 0 - 4 8 1 Win:Grove(2-1) Loss:Cuellar(0-2) Homeruns- E.Averill(3rd), T.Lazzeri(1st), P.Coimbre(2nd), O.Linares(4th), H.Espino(1st) Lefty Grove was able to finish what he started and was credited with a complete game and Earl Averill hit a grand slam as the AL Pre WWII ballclub defeated the Caribbean Estrellas by a score of 11 to 4 at Paradise Park. Averill enjoyed a fine evening at the plate. He delivered a single in the 5th inning, emptied the bases with a Grand Slam homerun (his 3rd of the season) in the 6th inning and laced a base-hit which scored a run in the 9th inning. AL Pre WWII rapped out 18 hits for the night. The victory went to Grove(2-1) who went the distance allowing 4 runs. The losing pitcher was Mike Cuellar(0-2). He allowed 13 hits and 3 walks in 5 innings. [1]LATE 20TH AT FOFC Modern Stars.... 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 - 0 4 0 All Stars....... 0 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 - 1 8 0 Win:Nielsen(2-0) Loss:Smoltz(2-1) Rob Nielsen struck out 14 batters as the sizzling FOFC All Stars defeated the Late 20th Modern Stars 1 to 0 at FOFC Stadium. Nielsen(2-0) came through with a virtuoso performance against the Late 20th hitters. He gave up just 4 hits and 5 walks in 9 innings lowering his ERA from 2.93 to 1.85. Late 20th threatened in the 9th but FOFC was able to put down the rally. The loss was charged to John Smoltz(2-1) in relief. Benton Breeze was asked about the performance of Nielsen, 'He had his good stuff out there tonight. The fans really get into it when the strikeouts start mounting up - and that seems to give him even more adrenalin.'

GAME 12 - Saturday, April 14 - Radio Broadcast

Code:
Sinker, down at the knees... Swung on... Henderson hits a Baltimore chop... Past the infield into left for a single! That was a difficult ball to handle Henderson studies Mighty intently... Now he's walking away from the base Another throw... Mighty's five throws over have been effective Henderson has a small lead now He must be getting tired from diving back in! Boggs shows bunt It's a beauty! Dan Fouts has no chance at second So Boggs gets the sacrifice And there's one away Piazza just gets a piece of it He 'drizzles' it to second Blade races in quickly... Barehands it... Over to first Just in time! The runner moves up easily... There's a long drive... Its' way back there... A. J. Tucker is at the wall... (Possible HR or Out Fielding ability: Great,) He's jumping for it... He's got it!!! What a great play by Tucker! Blade takes the pitch... That one is low for a ball... WAIT The umpire says that one caught the knees Blade is out on strikes One out Due up next is Kris Terp Dribbler in front of home Piazza grabs it His throw to first GOT HIM! Score It: 2-3 Two away Tucker swings and misses STRIKE THREE! Glavine strikes out A. J. Tucker Glavine retires the side in order Here in the bottom of the 1st Puckett pulls one to the left side It's going to scoot on through the infield Ton will retrieve it without difficulty He tosses it back in to second as Puckett retreats to first after a wide turn He rips a grounder to the mound Mighty comes up with it Throw to second for one On to first Not in time! Score It: 1-4 The runner on first, Puckett, is out One down for Late 20th Craig Biggio is still in the on-deck circle and Tony Gwynn is looking for a bat in the dugout Biggio hits a screamer into the gap Pflaggstettler is after it... He'll get it... Caught, near the warning track Two down Hays asks for a new ball He calls time and trots out to the mound A conference going on between Hays and Mighty It's in for a strike, and it gets away from Hays There goes Ripken from first He's safe at second Score it a passed ball on Hays Grounded into the hole Unbelievable play by Fouts! THE LONG THROW . . . HE GOT HIM!!! Score It: 5-3 That retires the side... Gwynn fails to come through in the clutch For Late 20th, No runs, one hit, no errors and one man left on base Pflaggstettler slaps a hard grounder past short Henderson is over to pick it up He tosses it back to second Pflaggstettler will hold with a clean single Glavine loses him Potpie heads down to first Fouts looks to lay one down He bunts at it . . . Fielded by M.Piazza the throw to first... Out Fouts gets the job done. One down, two to go... Tom Glavine has to bear down now Glavine loses him Ton heads down to first No more room on the bases now Glavine has to bear down now Fastball down low... Hays hits a grounder to short Ripken takes it on the big hop Flips it to Biggio Relay to first... A lightning double play! And that ends the threat by FOFC as Hays grounds in to an inning ending twin-killing with the bases loaded That'll do it in the bottom of the 2nd No runs, one hit, no errors and 2 men left on base Scoreless game And now we'll pause for station identification This is your Strat-O-Matic Broadcast System... High hard fastball, swung on... It's a grounder hammered at second... Blade is there... IT'S INTO RIGHT!!... It took a HIGH hop right over him! That's a single for Glavine Henderson slaps a slow bouncer in front of second Blade races in He reaches down Scoops it up and fires to first Out! Glavine advances on the play With one down, up next is Wade Boggs To be followed by Mike Piazza And Boggs will sit down... strike three called Two gone for Late 20th Grounded towards the bag Fouts grabs it Over to Potpie Got him! Score It: 5-3 That wraps up the inning for Late 20th So After 2 and a half innings FOFC has no runs, one hit and no errors While Late 20th has no runs, 3 hits and no errors Late 20th has left 3 stranded FOFC has failed to bring home 2 It's a high fly into center Puckett ranges to his right Reaches up, and takes it for the easy out So one up and one gone Blade sends a routine ground ball to first McGwire takes it on one hop Flips it to Glavine Easy out Scoreless game with two away this inning Hard slider, paints the inside corner Terp gets a piece of it... Slams a sharp grounder to the right side McGwire grabs it... Races to first... Beats Terp for the out The All Stars go down in order It's the bottom of the 3rd Drilled deep to right field This one is deep! GET UPSTAIRS AUNT MINNIE AND RAISE THE WINDOW!!! McGwire can touch 'em all! That is Mark McGwire's 2nd home run of the year. Struck him out on a fastball Puckett goes down swinging One gone for Late 20th Ripken takes the pitch STRIKE THREE, is the call Ripken can't believe it and says something to the ump Chalk up a whiff for Mighty Two men gone, nobody on Late 20th leads by 1 Sinker, down at the knees... Swung on... Biggio hits a Baltimore chop... Past the infield into left for a single! That was a difficult ball to handle Biggio inches away from first base Mighty steps away from the mound Now Biggio moves back to first A slider by Mighty Gwynn gets good wood on it... Tucker back-pedals quickly... Up with his glove... Out! That's it for Late 20th Here at FOFC Stadium, After 3 and a half innings, Late 20th has one run, 5 hits and no errors While FOFC has no runs, one hit and no errors Late 20th has left 4 on base FOFC has stranded 2 Baltimore chop Into center for a single! Pflaggstettler swings and misses Strike three Pflaggstettler didn't have a good cut at that pitch One down for FOFC Jeeberoni Potpie is in the on-deck circle ready to make his way to the plate for FOFC There's a duck snort in front of Rickey Henderson He dives, but he traps it Wait, the second base umpire overrules the call He calls the batter out With two gone, Late 20th on top 1 to 0 in the bottom of the 4th Tucker takes a short lead against the lefty Glavine Slow curve... Piazza has it... It's a delayed steal... There he goes The peg... Ripken applies the tag... Tucker is safe!... Ripken can't handle the throw cleanly Fouts smacks a fly to center Puckett is waiting on it Pounds his mitt Kirby takes it in That retires the side... Dan Fouts fails to come Through in the clutch That's something you won't see very often Belt high...Swung on by Glavine... Hit's a soft liner towards the gap Shortstop's going back... Leaps... Can't get it It's just over his outstretched glove Nice try by Terp, but not good enough Hit on the ground to Terp Kris is up with it Over to Blade for the force No chance to get Henderson at first Blade was knocked off balance by Glavine And Henderson, who can run beat the return throw easily One away While we wait for the next batter Let's see what's happening in other games NL Pre WWII is giving it to Japanese League 6 to 1 Negro League II slipping by NL Post WWII 4 to 2 Wright has hit his 2nd homerun for Negro League II Turn of Century leads Dead Ball Era 3 to 2 Left Outs is pounding Negro League I 8 to 1 And here in FOFC Late 20th on top 1 to 0 Taking his lead is Henderson Mighty's throws over have been effective Henderson has a shorter lead now He must be getting tired diving back into the bag Fastball, high and tight Ball Four Chin music... Boggs didn't like it Piazza swings from his heels He connects! There it goes... Tucker is up against the wall He jumps Outstanding catch That sure looked like it was going downtown Two down Due up next is Mark McGwire Let's see what happens now STRIKE THREE! He swung on a ball that was in the dirt McGwire was overanxious up there That was almost a wild pitch And that retires the side Ton starts... but lays off the pitch upstairs Ball four, Glavine walks him Curve, at the belt... Hays times his swing... Hammers a long fly ball... Rickey Henderson retreats toward the fence He leaps... It's gone, put that one on the board A home run!! Sinking fastball... Mighty swings... Raps a hard ground ball right at Ripken... He snares it easily, throws to first... Out by a step One away in the bottom of the 5th for FOFC Fastball, swung on and missed Take a seat Mr. Blade! That's the second out of the inning Fly ball to right Gwynn is under it He makes the grab That's three outs, side retired Good slider, inside part of the plate Puckett gets the bat on it... Slams a sharp grounder to the right side Blade grabs it... Throws to first... OUT! FOFC gets the first out of the inning Fastball... down and away... Mighty just misses the corner... ball four That's 2 walks given up by Mighty today Mighty just misses outside Ball four to Biggio He rips a grounder to second Blade grabs it Throws to second He's out Could be two . . . Double Play! Score It: 4-6-3 That ends the inning for Late 20th FOFC has 2 runs, 3 hits and no errors While Late 20th has one run, 6 hits and no errors Late 20th has now stranded 7 baserunners STRIKE THREE, CALLED! One away in the bottom of the 6th Pflaggstettler hits a screamer at Wade Boggs Boggs picks it up and fires to first The throw pulls McGwire off the bag McGwire swipes with the glove Pflaggstettler is out! Nice play by McGwire And there's two away Potpie hits a three hopper towards Wade Boggs Boggs scoops it and fires it to first for the out 1-2-3, nothing across... Bobby Cox will send up a pinch hitter for Tom Glavine Yes, Paul Molitor steps out of the dugout He will be up there against Mighty Fastball, STRIKE THREE! Molitor was frozen on that fastball by Mighty High and on the outside corner He was looking for an off-speed pitch One away While we wait for the next batter Let's take a ten second station break This is your Strat-O-Matic Broadcast System Your four sports network! Henderson swings and misses STRIKE THREE! Mighty strikes out Rickey Henderson That's the second out of the inning Slow ground ball Terp is charging it He fires it to first He's OUT That's all for Late 20th After 6 and a half innings in FOFC this evening, FOFC on top 2 to 1 It's time for the 7th inning stretch! John Smoltz will be coming on to pitch for Late 20th John has appeared in 5 games this season He has a record of 2-1 in 12 innings His ERA stands at 2.19 Curveball... Up in the strike zone... Swung on and drilled into center Puckett racing back... The ball is hit over his head It hits off the 7 foot high fence And there's Fouts around first base Puckett with a strong throw... But off the bag Dan comes into second sliding with a double That's 2 doubles for Fouts on the year Ton takes the pitch... That one is low for a ball... WAIT The umpire says that one caught the knees Ton's outta there That's one away Big motion... Hays is way out in front STRIKE THREE! Smoltz pulled the string on him Two down Gunner rips a line drive to left-center Henderson is off at the crack of the bat So too is Puckett... It is right in between them The ball is sinking fast... HOLY SMOKES!!! Both Puckett and Henderson dive! Man-oh-man!!! There is a collision! Both players are sprawled out on the ground! Ripken is out there seeing if they are all right... Henderson goes to one knee... What's this??? He flipped the ball to Ripken! Rickey caught the ball! Fouts dives back into second He somehow made it back to second in all the confusion before Ripken got the ball back in But man!! What a play!!! A real LALLAPALOOZA!!! Fortunately, it looks like both Puckett and Henderson are going to be rosy pink That was one impressive play! That is the third out for FOFC here in the last of the seventh The attendance has just been announced at 46226 Fastball, a beauty... Steee Rike THREE! Kronside retires the first batter to face him in the top of the 8th Off speed pitch on the way... And McGwire watches it go by for the third strike That's two away Puckett pounds a grounder toward Terp at short Kris moves in front of it... Whoops... a bad bounce But Terp stayed with it Over to first and Puckett is retired Nice play by the FOFC short stop Three down for Late 20th Now the All Stars will be coming up for what they hope will be their last at bat of the evening They lead by 1, 2-1 Blade fights one off his fists It's lined weakly to the left of short Ripken is over quickly Easy out One up, one down It is a slow change... Terp's not at all fooled He hits it squarely... It's heading out to right-center almost on a line... Very well hit ball by Kris Puckett is running after it... He hopes to play it off the fence He picks it up on the second bounce He turns and gets it back into the infield Terp slides into second base but it was not necessary Two-bagger for the FOFC shortstop It's a BULLET, hit towards first McGwire makes a nice play on it Score It: 3 Two away now for FOFC They're ahead by 1 The All Stars have 5 hits on the evening And Pflaggstettler will be trotting down to first They've put him on intentionally Jeeberoni Potpie is the batter due up next Change of pace Potpie is way out in front STRIKE THREE swinging Number 3 so far today for Smoltz So that will be all for FOFC here in the last of the 8th The All Stars will be adding to their 7 game win streak if Kronside can close this game out We now head into the 9th The batter checks his swing Here's the appeal Ripken swung, that's strike three Ripken isn't happy at all with that call One up, one down for Late 20th HIT HIM!! Biggio jogs down to first Craig took one for the team to get on Biggio moves away from first base... He has 3 stolen bases on the season Kronside steps away from the mound... Now Biggio moves back to first He's not getting far from the bag He's running with the pitch! Hays up quickly and throwing... Low throw... Biggio slides... OUT!... Terp dug that ball out of the dirt and applied the tag... Close play Curve ball... Gwynn swings and misses by a mile The bottom dropped out of that one! A wicked pitch! And that will do it for Late 20th FOFC wins 2 to 1 Mighty gets credit for the win Kronside notches the save Glavine takes the loss The hitting star for FOFC was Harry Hays He was 1 for 3 with a homerun And that wraps things up So long from FOFC.

I arrived at the park early today just to take some extra BP. I think my swing feels really good right now, but as I peak at the lineup card I notice I'm on the bench again. I really don't mind all that much since we are winning. I think I need to go buy some more seat cushions since the splinters on the bench can be a pain to remove from my ass.

Damn we are on a roll Even though I only went 1 for 4, I did my part by getting the web gem in the first inning. We are just plain dominating right now

Wow, a ton of webgems to help me through the game. Thanks.

On the other hand, too many hits and too many walks for Mighty to be satisfied. May need to an off day stint on the side with the pitching coach to tune it up a bit, skip.

It's a routine fly into center
Tucker ranges over and reaches up
He grabs it for the out
Kronside retires the side in order
Here in the top of the 11th

High hard fastball, swung on...
It's a grounder hammered at second...
Collins is there...
IT'S INTO RIGHT!!...
It took a HIGH hop right over him!
That's a single for Pflaggstettler
(Guarding Lines Effect)

Pflaggstettler edges away from the bag
The runner can't seem to get a good lead

The runner goes
Blade loves to hit and run...
A low curveball to Blade
He swings a bit late
but hits it right up the middle
Pflaggstettler is going to try for third
Roush is over, picks it
up and fires to Baker
One bounce...
The slide by Pflaggstettler...
SAFE!
Quick throw to second to
hold Blade at first
Now Collins fires it to first...
Blade just dives back safely!
The hit and run works to perfection!

Fastball... just outside
Fouts will take first on the walk
That will load 'em up for Stan Gunner

John McGraw will be bringing
in a relief pitcher
Chief Bender has been called
from the bullpen
A few warm up tosses and
we'll be set to go

It's popped up into foul territory
Frank Chance is under it
He grabs it for the out
Score It: 2
Bender gets out number one...
The All Stars have something going

Grounded through the infield
into left field
Base hit for Bullock
Over the head of the outfielder!
Pflaggstettler scores from third!
Blade takes third
Fouts takes second
FOFC wins 3 to 2
Kronside gets credit for the win
Brown takes the loss
The hitting star for FOFC
was Jeff Nights
He was 2 for 5 with a homerun
And that wraps things up
So long from FOFC.

Nice continued surge to start the season boys.

8-0 in one run ball games shows we're doing the little things right to come out on top.

Course, 8 one run games in the first 13 games of the season means we should start trying to win by more or our beloved skipper might not make it to the All-Star break

Gonzalez makes an incredible stop...
But he's in no position to make a throw
Score that a single

Baker is taking his lead from first
Slider, down and in...
Breaking on the pitch
There goes Baker for second
Hays fires it down...
Right on the money...
Baker is out by a mile

Wallace swings and misses
Strike three
Wallace didn't have a good
cut at that pitch
And that will do it for Dead Ball Era
FOFC wins 2 to 1
Williams gets credit for the win
Knowles notches the save
Walsh takes the loss
The hitting star for FOFC
was Stan Gunner
He was 1 for 1 with a homerun
And that wraps things up
So long from FOFC.

Our pitching staff is lights out right now. Good job guys.

Coach - I expect to my butt to be full of splinters again soon.

Dead Ball Era had a chance to come back in the 9th but Home Run Baker was gunned down trying to steal second, to get himself into scoring position. "I'm not sure why teams keep trying to run on us, especially in criticle situations. Don't they realize how good Bullock's and my arms are? I hope they keep on running, we'll take the easy outs," Hays said. Williams got relief help from Sammy Knowles who gained credit for his 4th save. Ed Walsh(1-3) was the loser. FOFC added another win to their now very impressive winning streak.

FOFC - MANAGER UPDATE


I wake up and pack my suitcase. We are heading on the road for our first road trip. It's only a short one, but it will be interesting to see how we perform away from our comfort zone. This schedule is ridiculous, starting out with a 14 game home stand. I think we pay for it in July, where we are away from home almost the entire month (will need to pack extra underwear for that trip).

I head to the stadium and I'm one of the first ones there. I load my bags in the team bus and get on board. I start reading a book that I brought along for the trip. Half way through the second chapter, Sal flops down next to me.


"Hey Skip," he starts off. "Lou Scribe pulled me aside last night after the game. He would like to do a piece on our teams fast start and great pitching."

"OK," I respond. "You supposed to handle it?"

"I already gave him some information, but he wants some comments from you."

"So when am I supposed to speak with him?"

"He says he'll grab you while we are on the road."

"Odds are we'll stink it up while we are out here and all the works he's done so far will become irrelavent." I smirk.

Sal laughs, then he gets up and heads to his seat.

"Hey Sal," I get his attention once more, "You and your guys are doing a fantastic job."

"Thanks, but it's easy to do when you have tallent to work with. What's the old saying, You're only as good as your tools." He smiles.

The runners are on the move
The throw comes in to the plate...

And that wraps things up
So long from Negro League I.

NL Post WWII erupted with the game winning runs in the top of the 8th inning when they tallied 5 runs on 3 hits. The key offensive moment was provided by Eddie Mathews who silenced the crowd when he lifted one out of the park for a two run home run (his 3rd of the season). NL Post WWII rapped out 8 hits for the night. The win was credited to Gaylord Perry(2-1) who went 1 inning allowing no runs. Early Wynn(0-3) was the loser.

Cuellar(1-2) was very good in the win. He gave up just 3 hits and 5 walks in 8 innings lowering his ERA to 4.05. The left-handed Cuellar lost his chance for a no-hitter when Dick Lundy singled with one out in the 6th inning. Negro League II had a chance in the 9th but they came up short.

Japanese League managed 9 in their victory. The winning pitcher was Victor Starffin(1-0) who allowed 1 run in 2 innings. Keishi Suzuki gained credit for his 1st save. John Franco(1-1) was given the loss in relief. He was not very effective, surrendering 3 runs in 2 innings.

Mays(1-1) came through with a virtuoso performance against the Old Timers hitters. He allowed just 3 hits and 2 walks in 9 innings. Old Timers made it exciting in the 9th, but they were unable to push the needed runs across. Pud Galvin(1-1) absorbed the loss in relief. 'When Mays is on like that it is a tough game to play, no doubt about it,' Frank Selee said. 'He always pitches well against us.' NL PRE WWII AT DEAD BALL ERA Pre-Nationals... 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 0 - 1 6 0 Ghosts.......... 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 - 0 5 0 Win:Rixey(3-0) Loss:Johnson(2-2) Eppa Rixey pitched a complete game shutout at Deadball Park where the NL Pre WWII ballclub beat the struggling Dead Ball Era Ghosts 1 to 0.

Walter Johnson(2-2) was charged with the loss. He allowed just 5 hits and 1 walk in 8 innings. NL Pre WWII now has a record of 11-3. With this loss, Dead Ball Era has a 3-7 record of late, 6-10 overall. FOFC AT NEGRO LEAGUE I All Stars....... 0 2 0 1 0 2 1 2 0 - 8 10 1 Ones............ 0 0 0 3 0 0 0 0 1 - 4 10 0 Win:Babson(3-0) Loss:Paige(2-1) Save:Rodney(1st) Homeruns- B.Blade(1st), J.Potpie(2nd), B.Bullock(2nd) Brian Babson racked up an impressive total of 10 strikeouts as the blistering-hot FOFC All Stars defeated the Negro League I Ones by a score of 8 to 4 at Black Diamond Pk. Billy Bullock had a big day with his bat. He doubled which scored a run in the 4th inning, cracked a two-run shot (his 2nd of the season) in the 6th inning and slapped a one-base hit plating two runs in the 8th inning. Negro League I threatened in the 9th but FOFC was able to put down the rally. Babson(3-0) went 7 innings allowing 3 runs for the victory. James Rodney recorded his 1st save. Satchel Paige(2-1) was hit with the loss. He allowed 3 homeruns in 7 innings of work. Babson was humble when questioned about his performance, 'Well, I felt pretty confident in my pitches this afternoon. But, I had great support behind me and I just threw what was called. That was an extremely well called game!'

FOFC - Manager Update

I've already gotten so accustomed to my morning routine that I failed to notice the cover story on the Sports page today. I didn't notice it dealt with my team until I closed it after reading the synopsis of last nights games.

I look at the picture on the cover. It's a great shot of Babson throwing a pitch with Maglie in the backgroun on the top step of the dug out watching. There are inset pictures of Mighty and Nielsen as well.

Blistering
by Lou Scribe

The late Spring sunshine has been hot, and there are several red, sunburned faces around the Dynasty League lockerrooms to prove it. However, nothing is as hot as the FOFC All Stars and more specifically their pitching. The FOFC All Stars, proved durning the spring with a 12 and 8 record that they would be able to compete with the games greatest players ever, but there were still some reservations from the fans, players, and even the manager.

"I feel like our pitching is good enough to let us compete, but Spring training is just that - training. The stats we accumulated are thrown out and we start from scratch. We'll have to see how we do when the lights come on." Manager Benton Breeze commented at his press conference following the last Spring game.

So far (with the lights on) so good.

How's a 14 and 1 record sound? Pretty good right? Well that's only part of the story, and it doesn't truly capture the teams dominating pitching. If I were to tell you that the FOFCers have a team batting average of .269, which places them in the middle of the pack, have 15 home runs which is also middle of the pack, and have managed to score only 62 runs, the only teams that have scored less are the 6 and 9 Caribbeans, the 4 and 9 Post- Americans, and the 3 and 11 Japanese teams, you would probably guess the All Stars are around a .500 team.

Let's get a little more specific about the teams offense...Pflaggstettler is the only full time player hitting over .300, but he is way over that number currently sitting at .453. The Catcher platoon of Bullock and Hays are hitting a combine .333 with Bullock getting the most at bats so far and carrying an impressive .375 average. The rest of the regulars are under .300 and Gunner who isn't even a full-time starter leads the team in home runs with 3. To give you a bit of comparison, Jimmy Foxx leads the league in homeruns with 9 and it takes 5 to get on the short list leaderboard. Pflaggstettlers 12 RBI lead the team, but that won't put him on the list of league leaders either. Despite the rather vanilla offensive statistics the team has a 2.5 game lead in the National League. How is that possible you ask?

...it's the pitching stupid.

"We've really done well pitching," says team pitching coach Sal Maglie. "Coming into the season we really preached to our guys to pitch to spots, but to challenge hitters. We knew free passes would kill us. In this league you can't be giving teams baserunners, and so far so good."

The FOFCers have only issued 40 walks, second lowest in the league to the Old Timers. With the low number of walks and the great pitching the FOFCers are only allowing just over 1 baserunner an inning. The teams ERA is 2.43, almost an entire run better than the next closest team the Pre-Nationals who are at 3.35. The biggest reason the All Stars have a low ERA - try the top 3 pitchers in the rotation - Babson, Nielsen and Mighty. All 3 are in the top 7 lowest ERAs in all of baseball. The league leader is Cannonball Dick Redding at 1.44, but Mighty is second (1.57), Nielsen is 4th (1.85) and Babson is 7th (2.03). The two right handers at the end of the games Kronside and Sammy Knowles have combined to go 14 scoreless innings, striking out 14 and walking only 4.

"We've been doing so good that pitchers like Rodney and Fozborg are getting very little work, and these guys are good enough to start for team in this league," Maglie points out. "Our 5th starter is 2 and 0 with a 3.21 ERA and he's goine 7 innings in both games. Not bad."

All that is great, but it still doesn't give you the full affect of how dominating the FOFC pitchers have been. Let's try throwing out a few more numbers -

9 and 0 in 1 run games
1 and 0 in extra innings
In the 15 games played - 7 times they have held opponents to 0 or 1 run.
In 9 of the 15 games opponents have been held to 2 or less.

Now is the pitching coach Maglie smiling - absolutlely. "We have a 2.43 ERA and that is awesome in any league, but we've done it against hitters with last names of Ruth, Gehrig, Gibson, Charleston, DiMaggio, Cobb, Speaker...I could go on and on and on. I'm extremely proud of my staff."

What about the Manager Benton Breeze -

"We've pitched well and gotten timely hitting, and I'm thrilled by our 14 and 1 start, but the numbers as impressive as they appear are hidding some very unsettling facts." Benton explains, "We are 9 and 0 in 1 runs games, that means we are 1 bad pitch, or misplayed ball away from losing those games.
We've played 14 of our 15 games at home, and that is a huge advantage. Our park isn't as cavernous as the Dead Ballers, Old Timers or the Centurions, but it's designed to help our pitchers, and they've benefitted from that. We have also benefited from being healthy this season. Have you seen some of the names on the Injury Report. Wow."

And of course we get his typical response for this time of year...

"It's early and there is a bunch of baseball still to be played. I just hope we can continue to play this way."

You can always count on reporters missing some important piece of information like that.

GAME 16 - Wednesday, April 18th - Radio Broadcast

In the dirt
And Blade holds up
He draws the walk
Nice way to start out the inning

Swung on and lofted very high...
and deep...
Charleston starts back, turns...
He's at the fence...
And he pulls it in!
Williams gets the first out in the inning

Base hit to center for Tucker
Blade is racing towards third...
The throw is going to third...
Blade is safe at third!
And Tucker advances to second on the throw

Just inside with a fastball
Williams is visibly upset...
Gibson is quickly out to calm him down
Dihigo comes over as well
Blade on third, Tucker on second
and Pflaggstettler on first
They'll be loaded up for Jeeberoni Potpie

Potpie swings and hits a high fly to right
It is right along the line...
Torriente is over at the
fence... reaches...
It's going to be close...
Just out of the reach of Torriente
Foul ball into the seats
He would have had a chance
in most other parks
Only a smidgen of foul ground out
there at Black Diamond Pk
. . . Potpie back in the box
And here comes the next pitch
Potpie swings and lifts one toward left
Charleston drifts over slowly...
He is under it now...
And makes the easy catch...
Williams needs one more out
to get the Ones out of this jam

Billy Bullock swings
This one may be out of here...
Back, back, back...
GONE! A homerun into the seats in left
Bullock gets a hearty slap on the back
from bench coach Chuck Tanner
as he ducks into the All Stars' dugout

There's a fly ball to Turkey Stearnes
Stearnes circles under it...
This one would end the inning...
He makes the play
After one-half inning
It's FOFC 4, Ones coming up

Grounded back to the mound
Nielsen comes up with it
Tosses it to first and gets him
One away, two to go in the
bottom of the 1st

Dihigo swings on a ball in on his fists
It results in a pop up to short
Nights is under it...
A few steps to his right...
One hands it for the out
Dihigo looked bad on that pitch
And there's two away

It's a sinker, up in the strike zone
Charleston hits it deep into the alley
Pflaggstettler is back to
the warning track...
To the fence...
He leaps in the air...
Can't reach it!...
It's in for extra bases...
Almost a fine play by Persimmon
Pflaggstettler
Charleston is at second with
a stand-up double

Gibson rips one hard to center
A. J. Tucker is on his horse
as he retreats to the fence
He is looking up...
Will he have a chance???

And this ball is caught!
At the end of one inning,...
FOFC leads 4 to 0

Hard slider, paints the inside corner
Fouts gets a piece of it...
Slams a sharp grounder to the right side

FOFC - TEAM UPDATE

Heading back into the dugout I mumble in a joking manner, "Damn writers jinxing our pitchers."

Howser got the joke and smirked, but Sal took me seriously, "At least we still won."

"No thanks to your "Blistering" pitchers," chirps Bob Hazzle.

"Well it's about time your players starting pulling their weight," Sal barks back.

Howser cuts in before I can to calm things, "Now, now, we need to stop speaking to each other this way or we'll scare the children." After a pause he continues, "We won, that's all that matters. Sal that won't be the last time your pitchers have a bad outing, and Bob, get over the article. It was well written and timely. Problem with those types of articles is the streaks come to an end. We'll have to see if our ended tonight."

I cut in and change the subject, "Any idea how Gazelle is doing?"

"No, I don't think it's serious though. Probably a strained hamstring. Tay is checking him out, but we probably won't know anything for sure until tomorrow."

FOFC - Manager Update

I woke up feeling lousy the day after our back and forth battle with the Ones, so I turned off the alarm and slept most of the day. I got out of bed just in time to catch the team bus to the park. Once at the park, I retreated to the closet called the Visiting Manager's Office, where I dozed on and off. I felt so bad, I didn't even bother to pick up the paper and read the results of other games. I was finally awaken by Dick Hoswer saying, "Ben...you need to get up, it's time to exchange lineup cards."

The lead-off batter gets on here
in the bottom of the 1st

Score It: 4
The side is retired
No runs, no hits, no errors
and one man left on base
Time for a break, just in
time, by the way as
I've just been handed a ballpark hotdog
As Humphrey Bogart once said
A hotdog at the ballpark is better than
steak at the Ritz

Pflaggstettler goes after
Smith's fastball...
He gets under it a little...
But it is going way back in left-center
Bell is retreating after it quickly
He is right at the fence...
He goes up after it...
And brings it down in the webbing!
Persimmon just missed a homer on that one
Only a long out for the FOFC right fielder
And there's one away

Fastball, over the plate...

in a BIG WAY...
Forget it, that one is long gone...
HOME RUN!!!
That gives Potpie 4 this year

FOFC - MANAGER UPDATE

Leaving the field after the game, I'm not feeling well, I'm disappointed in the loss and I'm real disappointed in the fact we've had 2 straight poor starts, so I grumble, "Damn writers, jinxing our pitchers." This time it's not so tounge in cheek.

I...I...I don't get it. What does it mean when the other team scores more than us?

On a bright note, I have a three game homer streak going.

I wake up still grumpy from the last couple days, so I head to the park and boycott the paper once again.
