FOFC Team Update

Sal Maglie says, "Here chick, chick, chick."
as he walks back to the clubhouse.

I start thinking about bringing a flask to the game.

GAME 49 - Thursday, May 23rd - Radio Broadcast

Red, "We'll the bad news is the FOFCers still have their losing streak, but the good news is they are out of the Post-Nationals park and they get to go up against the Estrellas, a good team, but one no where near the level of the Posters."

"We thought it was going to be Mighty's turn to try and stop the losing streak, but in talking to Benton this afternoon we found out that wouldn't be the case."

---cut to the sound clip----

Red, "So coach, it's Mighty's turn to try and right the ship."

Breeze, "Actually, Mighy's not going to pitch tonight. I've decided to give Fozzy a shot."

Red, "Wow that's a switch. Mighty has the best ERA in the game, why pull the ball out of his hands?"

Breeze,"There are several reasons, not the least of which is the fact that we just need to change things up right now. We are on a hard luck streak. We've been in a position to win most of the games we've lost during our run, and things just haven't gone our way. Mighty has been the toughest luck pitcher in the league I'm sure. In fact, I'm not quite sure how a guy with an ERA of 2.25 or whatever it is, only has a .500 record. But anyway, I felt that putting a tough luck pitcher in to start when the team is on a run of bad luck probably wasn't a wise move - so I've decided to roll the dice and give Foz a shot. Besides Foz has pitched well and he's been bugging Sal and me about a turn in the rotation."

---back to the live broadcast---

So we'll be going with a first start of the season on Sirr Fozzborg against a crafty lefty in Cuellar.

The lineups tonight are:

A.Tucker CF
S.Treacy 2B
J.Nights SS
J.Potpie 1B

S.Fozborg P

D.Concepcion SS

get back in this ballgame
Currently down by 3

Comebacker, right to Fozborg
Over to Potpie for the easy out
Two up, two down for Caribbean

Fastball, just inside to Minoso
So Minoso walks
A rare walk today by Fozborg
Only 2 issued in the game
That is certainly part of the reason
he now enjoys a 3 run lead

Grounded down the line
Taken by Palmer
Tosses to second
He's out
Score It: 5-4
The runner on first, Minoso, is out
And that will do it for Caribbean
FOFC wins 4 to 1
Fozborg gets credit for the win
Cuellar takes the loss
The hitting star for FOFC
was Jeeberoni Potpie
He was 1 for 4
And that wraps things up

Ah nice to finally get a win

I may just be an idiot, but shouldn't I have two RBIs and not one

Grounder... in the hole at first
A diving stop by Perucho Cepeda!
He's up with it... the throw
He throws wild! The ball gets away...
Tucker will advance to second
Score that a hit... and an error by Cepeda
Score It: Single + E3
Hays scores from third!
Palmer scores from second!
Ton takes third
Tucker to second

The official scorer said the second run scored on the error, not the hit. That's why you only got 1 RBI.

FOFC Dynasty Update

Guys, just wanted to give you a quick update...

I have been moved to a new possition in the company and I now am part of the Networking Group, which has meant longer hours. I also have to set up a home network so I can get my work laptop on my offices' VPN and access some of the applications that I'm supporting. In the process of changing my DLS over from USB to Ethernet, I got a socket error and now don't have access to the Internet from home. I should have it by the weekend, but until then I won't be able to update anything. I have played more games...so updates will be coming as soon as I get back on.

With the resurrection of my stint in the LOC - SOM league (detailed in another thread), I started playing my SOM game again. Which led me to start playing games for this dynasty again...

I have box scores from the games that I played recently, if anyone is interested enough - I'll post them.

I really regret I didn't follow through better on this one...

There are several games that are missing from my playback. I could spend a bunch of time attempting to location them (which would probably make me lose interest in this and give it up), instead let's treat this like you spent a week or so on vaction and didn't read the paper and when you got back...this is what you found...

'I thought it was my best performance in a long time,' said Nielsen. 'I had good command early in the game. I had my control and composure and everything went well.'

Japanese League erupted with the game winning runs in the bottom of the 9th inning with 3 runs on 2 hits. After an out was recorded, Ichiro Suzuki started the rally when he stroked a one-base hit. One out later, Katsuya Nomura came up and he drew a walk. Saduharu Oh then lost the ball over the fence for three runs (his 15th of the season) resulting in a mighty exciting win for Japanese League and the 42,456 home town fans in attendance. Japanese League had only 3 hits for the game. The win was credited to Sugishita(2-5) who went the whole way allowing 1 run. Brian Babson(6-5) was hit with the loss. He surrendered just 3 hits and 2 walks in 8 and 2/3 innings. Coach said after the game, "Babson deserved better. If I hadn't been brain dead, and had called in Bo to pitch to Oh we probably win this one." 'What a game!,' Sugishita said afterward. 'When we won it I almost couldn't believe it!'

GAME 58 - JUNE 1st - RADIO BROADCAST


Red: "The FOFCers still haven't kicked things into gear the way they did early in the season, but they have maintained their 4 to 6 game division lead. However, this is a crucial series for the All-Stars. If they want to prove they belong they need to do well this week."

Hal McRae chimes in, "It's a little early in the season to talk about a cruical series, but this one will have some impact. The FOFCers have done extremely well early, but most of those wins came against the American League teams, especially the Japanese team, now they are facing their division rivals, and more importantly the team that has been able to real them in a bit...the NL Posters."

"They have a tough assignment trying to win tonight, as they will be going up against Sandy Koufax." Red adds. "The umpire has given the signal and it looks like we are ready to being...The FOFCers will counter with their own tough lefty Al Mighty..."

"Not a great team for a Lefty to be facing by the way...I mean the Post Nationals have Aaron, Mays, Clemente, Banks, Schmidt...some pretty nasty right handed bats...

Hays throws down to second, the ball goes around the horn and we are ready to begin...

Morgan steps in...and on the first pitch he hits a weak

GAME 59 - June 2nd - RADIO BROADCAST

Red: Well the FOFCers won the first of game of this series and that has to take some of the pressure off.

covering the bag

He lofts a fly ball towards Mays
Mays gliding under it...
Appears to lose sight of it
Has it again...
And makes the catch in medium center
So that's it for FOFC

And he's got it!!!
Beautiful play by Willie Mays!
And that will do it for FOFC
NL Post WWII wins 13 to 8

Hunter takes the loss
The hitting star for NL Post WWII
was Stan Musial
He was 4 for 5 with 2 homeruns!
He also knocked in 7 runs
And that wraps things up
So long from FOFC.



Note: I let the computer completely handle the play by play, so it may be a bit more confusing. For some reason it doesn't always announce visits to the mound, player replacements and double switches...but it's much easier and faster for me. If you don't like it let me know. Heck, if you don't like the radio broadcast posts at all and just want box scores, I can do that too

He lined a base-hit in the 1st inning, doubled bringing in a run in the 3rd inning, tripled in the 8th inning and lashed a single which was good for two runs in the 9th inning.

Late 20th banged out 9 on the night. The losing pitcher was Bob Feller(5-7). Clemens was pleased with his performance. He noted, 'I had good command of all my pitches.

Robinson really 'lit it up' for Left Outs. He smashed a bases-empty 'big-fly' in the 3rd inning and electrified the crowd with a Grand Slam home run (his 6th of the season) in the 4th inning. Left Outs bats were very productive in the 2nd inning with 5 runs on 5 hits and the 4th inning when they had 6 runs on 5 hits. For the game Left Outs out-hit Caribbean 19 to 16. Steve Carlton(3-4) got the win allowing 6 runs in 7 innings. Luis Tiant Sr.(4-6) was hit with the loss.

The game was decided in the bottom of the 9th inning. Joe Jackson doubled. After another out, Bobby Wallace came up and he worked the squeeze play to perfection giving Dead Ball Era the win and sending the home town fans into a frenzy. Despite losing, Negro League I out-hit Dead Ball Era 12 to 8. The victory was credited to Three Finger Brown(2-3) who went 1 inning, allowing 1 run. Dave Barnhill(3-4) suffered the loss in relief. JAPANESE LEAGUE AT NEGRO LEAGUE II HOF Players..... 1 0 0 1 1 0 0 0 0 - 3 8 0 Twos............ 0 1 0 0 4 0 3 0 - 8 12 0 Win:Redding(5-6) Loss:Nomo(1-8) Homeruns- K.Nomura(8th), W.Brown(7th) Cannonball Redding allowed Cito Gaston to rest his bullpen, tossing a complete game and Willard Brown ripped a bases loaded blast as the Negro League II Twos topped the hapless Japanese League HOF Players by a score of 8 to 3 at Shadowball Stadium. Brown had a good evening at the plate. He brought the hometown folks to their feet with a Grand Slammer (his 7th of the season) in the 5th inning and laced a one-base hit in the 7th inning. Negro League II had a total of 12 hits for the game. Redding(5-6), allowing 3 runs for the game, picked up the victory. Hideo Nomo(1-8) ended up with the loss. He surrendered 7 hits and 1 walk in 6 innings. NL POST WWII AT FOFC Post-Nationals.. 3 1 0 4 1 1 1 0 2 - 13 18 2 All Stars....... 2 0 0 0 0 0 0 3 3 - 8 12 2 Win:Marichal(8-4) Loss:Hunter(4-3) Homeruns- S.Musial-2(14th), E.Mathews(16th), P.Pflaggstettler(9th), D.Palmer(3rd) Juan Marichal dominated striking out 10 FOFC batters and Stan Musial slammed 2 homeruns and had 7 RBI at FOFC Stadium where the NL Post WWII ballclub beat the FOFC All Stars by the score of 13 to 8. Musial was a source of great heartache for the FOFC faithful all day. He just kept pounding out hits! He lofted a three-run 'big-fly' in the 1st inning, smashed a two-run homer (his 14th of the season) in the 4th inning, laced a single in the 6th inning and lined a one-base hit bringing in two baserunners in the 9th inning. The NL Post WWII offense poured it on, scoring in 7 of the 9 innings. Marichal(8-4) went 8 and 2/3 innings allowing 8 runs for the win. Owen Hunter(4-3) was tagged with the loss. He served up 3 gopher balls in 3 and 2/3 innings. Marichal, when asked about his 10 strikeout performance noted, 'The important thing is that we won, if I get 20 and we lose, what good does it do our team? But, on the other hand, since we won it feels great!'

Post Game

After the embarrassing loss, I’m sitting in my office, drinking a black and tan (following the good start the owner actually installed 2 draft taps), when in walks Howser…

“What’s up skip?”

“I’ve been thinking,” I responded with a frown.

“Uh Oh, that’s not good…especially for a manager who is supposed to be good with instincts not brains?”

“Ok, smart ass, let’s say my instincts are telling me we might be in trouble.” I hand him a beer, and I try to figure out exactly how I want to lay this out.

“Since our incredible start, we’ve been pretty mediocre. I mean we’ve been playing .500 ball for a while now, and if it wasn’t for our 9 and 1 record against Japan, we wouldn’t even be in first place.”

“We should be 10 and 0 against Japan, but a certain manager I know failed to pull…”

“Shut up, smart ass….”

He smirks.

“Anyway, I’m seriously thinking about taking a look at our minor leagues for help.”

“REALLY!” “I am truly surprised…” Why?”

“Well, to be honest, maybe it is instinct, but we have some issues…”

“We are just a third into the season.” He points out.

“My point exactly, and we need to address some stuff.”

After a pause, Howser says…“I’m listening…tell me what you’re thinking…”

“Ok, but let’s see if there is any food left in the clubhouse…I need to eat something. My acid reflux is killing me.”

Howser smirks again, “You know that beer isn’t helping any…”

After grabbing a couple small sandwiches, we settle back into the office...and I explain my position...

"I think we need to address some weaknesses or we are going to not only get caught from behind but run over."

"What weaknesses?" Howser asks.

"We'll to start with Bo has been terrible...He can't seem to get anyone out."

"He's our only true lefty in the pen" Howser calmly reminds me.

"We could put Williams in the pen."

"You could," he shrugs, "but you know as well as I that he's built more to start and even though he can pitch relief, he isn't built for late innings or long stents out of the pen."

"Well don't we have a lefty on the farm team that can get the job done?" I ask.

"We are in first by 4 games, I haven't looked at what's going on down there." But that's not the only thing that is bothering you, is it?"

"No, I'm not happy at our middle infield. Don't get me wrong, Nights has been fantastic, but Terp is struggling to stay above .100 and our second base situation is a disaster."

"Treacy is hitting great." Howser counters.

"But fielding terribly, and he has no range in that spot. I think he's actually better in left field. I like his versitility, but as a starting second basemen in this league, he's lacking defensively. I had high hopes for Barrett, he did well in spring, and I like his game, but he's really had a hard time."

"Anything else..." Howser asks, almost as if he's a psychiatrist.

"Well, Ton's be bad, Gonzalez isn't hitting for power, Fouts isn't getting it done..." I look up to see Howser nodding dutifully. I stop mid-sentence and just stare at him.

After about 30 seconds he says..."You finished?"

I nod

"Feeling better?"

I nod

"Good, I'm heading home. Traffic should be ok by now." Howser says matter of factly.

As he turns to walk out I yell, "Thank you."

He answers without turning around, "All part of the job."

GAME 60 - June 3 - Radio Broadcast

Red - The FOFCers and the Post Nationals go at it again tonight, and the FOFCers are going up against Warren Spahn.

Hal - The lefty is really tough against righties...so Benton has decided to go with Gonzalez at first to see if his power hitting left handed first baseman can get his bat going...

Fastball, lined to right...
Base hit for Morgan...
Pflaggstettler over...Grabs
it on the big hop...
Fires it back in...
Holding Morgan at first

Swung on and hit back at Babson
He picks it up, turns and fires to Nights
Over to first...
Double play!
A bounding ball that was turned into
an easy 1-6-3 double play by Babson
And there's two away

Aaron swings and hits a high fly to right
It is right along the line...
Pflaggstettler is over at
the fence... reaches...
It's going to be close...
Just out of the reach of Pflaggstettler
Foul ball into the seats
He would have had a chance
in most other parks
Only a smidgen of foul ground
out there at FOFC Stadium
. . . Aaron back in the box
And here comes the next pitch
It's a routine fly into center
Tucker ranges over and reaches up
This should wrap-up the inning...
It's in the bank
That's three outs here in
the top of the first
At the end of one half inning,
for NL Post WWII
No runs, one hit and no errors
FOFC is coming to bat

###User cat:91 line:16833 (327/273/42/3):
NL Post WWII has taken the field
in the bottom of the first inning...

Here's how they look, defensively
In the outfield
Aaron will play left
Mays in center
Clemente in right...
Around the diamond
Mathews will play the hot corner
Banks and Morgan
Make up the doubleplay combination...
Over at first Musial
And a battery of Warren Spahn
and Bench behind the plate
First batter for the All Stars
A. J. Tucker steps in
Tucker is one of the best hitters around

Spahn is happy with the sign

Into the windup... here's the pitch

Tucker tries to hold up
Bench points down at the first base umpire
The ump says he went around
STRIKE THREE!

So one up and one gone

Nights, FOFC's shortstop,
is coming to the plate
He is finished with his pre-bat warmup
Gerald Gazelle waits on deck
The outfield shades towards
left for Nights
He's waiting on the pitch
Still waiting...

Now he steps out of the box...
We have a game of cat and mouse going on
OK, now we're ready to go
as Nights steps back in
Spahn will try to get Nights to go fishing
as the 0-2 pitch heads towards the plate
Ground ball to the left side...
Banks scoops it up
Over to first for the putout
Two up, two down here in
the bottom of the 1st

Gazelle finishes his practice swings
Now he strides to the batter's box
Gazelle goes through his
routine of settling in
Gazelle awaits the pitch
Warren rocks and fires
Fly ball to center
Mays is under it
He makes the grab
And that retires the side

Musial heads for the plate
leading off this inning for NL Post WWII
Musial has a .309 average against
righthanders this season
Babson is on the first-base
side of the rubber...
Babson kicks and fires
Ground ball through the middle
Nights ranges behind second
Nice pick up...
Twists and fires it
OUT!
One up, one down for NL Post WWII

Mays digs in at the plate
Ready now for Babson to come set
Mays a righty in the batter's box
facing the righthanded Babson
He's ready for the delivery
The pitch is on the way
Slider, down and in
Mays swings hard...
He hits one into center
Tucker starts back...now reverses himself
He is coming in at full speed...
And has to take it on one hop
He was fooled on that ball
as Willie hit it on the handle
Mays running hard all the way
heads for second
Here's the throw
It's high and wide
Mays is safe at second
Kind of an "excuse me" double

That'll bring up Post-Nationals'
third baseman Eddie Mathews...
NL Post WWII with a man in scoring
position at second
One out, man on second
Babson is rubbing the ball up
Now the umpire wants to take a look
No problems found...
Now Babson gets the sign from Hays
Here's his delivery
Curveball, in and low
Mathews hits it to Gonzalez at first
Takes it cleanly...
Races to the bag...
It's going to be close...
And...
Out is the call
That could have gone either way
Mays is now perched over at third
Two down

Banks walks up to the plate
2 men away, Mays on third
Babson has the sign from Hays
Babson brings it to the plate
Banks is gone on strikes
Left with the bat still in
the cocked position
That's all for NL Post WWII
After 1 and a half innings
in FOFC this evening,
We're scoreless

David Gonzalez stops at the on deck circle
Takes a couple more practice swings
Now heads for the plate
Spahn is asking for a new ball...
The ump throws him a new one...
Spahn looks in...
Now he's ready
And the delivery by Spahn
Gonzalez cuts on a curve that
misses in the dirt
That ball is trapped nicely by Bench
Gonzalez was badly fooled by
Spahn's big breaking curve
STRIKE THREE!
David was a little overanxious
One gone for FOFC

Now here's Hays
Hays taps home plate
Looks into the dugout
Now he's ready
Warren Spahn steps off the
mound toward second
Gives the resin bag a toss
Now he toes the rubber...
He's ready to go
Spahn goes into his windup
Here it comes
A slider by Spahn
Hays gets good wood on it...
Clemente back-pedals quickly...
Up with his glove...
Out!
Two up, two down for the All Stars
We're in the bottom of the 2nd

Pflaggstettler is up near the batter's box
He is going through his obligatory ritual
Finally, he steps in
Spahn likes the sign
Warren Spahn, with 22 appearances
before today's game
looks down for the sign from Bench
Spahn has great control
He's looking for win number 3
He's into the windup
Pflaggstettler drives one into left
Hank Aaron sprints over to make the play
That wraps up the inning for FOFC
By the way, FOFC is 4 and 6
in their last ten games

Bench is walking to the plate
Now he steps into the batter's box
Scoreless game
Babson looks down at Hays for the sign...
Shakes him off once... twice
Now he has the pitch he wants
Now Brian delivers
Fastball, swung on and missed
Take a seat Mr. Bench!
That's one away

Coming up for NL Post WWII is Warren Spahn
Nobody on base, one out
Spahn can't seem to get
settled at the plate
Spahn is set in the batter's box
He's staring intently out at Babson
He's waiting for the pitch
Windup by Babson
And the pitch
Curve, a beauty...
Strike three looking!
Babson punches him out!
One more chance for NL Post
WWII this inning

Up next is Joe Morgan
Joe is an ex-Boston College basketball
and ice hockey star
Morgan is 1 for 1 today
Joe singled last time up
Morgan waits patiently
Babson brings it to the plate
Fastball, just inside...
Looked very close...
Babson's obviously peeved at that call
But Joe tends to get those calls
He has a great eye and doesn't mind
taking the free ride to first

Morgan takes a walking lead
Morgan has stolen 20 bases
in 26 attempts in 1900
Another throw...
Babson's five throws over
have been effective
Morgan has a small lead now
He must be getting tired
from diving back in!

Roberto Clemente, the right fielder,
strides to the plate
Clemente wiggles the bat above his head
Babson has the sign he wants
Babson goes into his stretch
Looks over at the fidgety Morgan
He lobs one to Gonzalez...
Morgan is back easily
We're ready again
Now Babson comes home
Clemente sits on the change up
He lofts a fly ball towards Gazelle
Gazelle gliding under it...
Appears to lose sight of it
Has it again...
And makes the catch in medium left

Musial gets set for the pitch

If he gets on, Johnny Bench will follow
Ernie is hitting at .271 on the year
He has 60 hits in 221 at bats
Today, he is 0 for 2
Banks grounded out his last time up
He's ready
Here's the southpaw's delivery
There's a high pop fly to the outfield
Persimmon Pflaggstettler moves to his left
He makes the catch
Wait, he bobbles it!
Pflaggstettler grabs it with
his bare hand for the out
That retires the side...
2 runs cross the plate for NL Post WWII
After 5 and a half innings,
NL Post WWII ahead 5 to 0

Sean Treacy will step into the
box to start the inning
FOFC would like to get some
runners on board
Treacy is 1 for 1 today, with 0 home runs
Spahn rubs down the ball...
Now he's asking for a new one
After he rubs this one down
He looks in for the sign
Spahn rocks and fires
Outside fastball... lashed at by Treacy...
Pop fly...Shallow left...
Dropping quickly...
Aaron pulls up, doesn't
want it to get by him
Base hit for Treacy...
As Aaron fields it on one bounce

Settling in at the plate is Palmer
Deacon stares down at Dick
Howser for the sign
Treacy leads away from first
The umpire says let's go
Spahn's into the stretch...

Looks over at first
Quick throw!
Treacy dives back in!...

SAFE!...

Musial tosses it back to Spahn
Now here's the pitch
Curve painting the inside corner
Swung on...
Bounced right to first
Fielded, the throw to 2nd...
They get the force for the out

One on, one out
Tucker walks to the batter's box
Tucker is 0 for 2 today, with 0 home runs
Spahn wastes no time
He has the sign from Bench
He's into the stretch
Takes a look over to first
Quick throw!
Palmer dives back in!...

SAFE!
Musial tosses it back to Spahn
Now here's the pitch
Curve ball...
Low and away...
Tucker reaches for it...
Pops it straight up
Two players have a chance for it
And it will be Bench making the play
Two gone for FOFC

So with 1 on and 2 outs
FOFC sends their shortstop,
Jeff Nights, up to face Spahn
Hard-hitting Gerald Gazelle is walking
towards the on-deck circle
Nights swinging from the right side
of the plate against the lefty Spahn
The count one ball,
one strike on Nights
Spahn goes into his stretch...
Looks at Palmer...
He fires one to Musial...
Palmer dives back in
That's his best move to first...
Musial lobs it back
Now Spahn comes home
Slider, down and away...
Swung on...
Nights rips a bouncer to Mathews
He takes it and goes to 2nd for the force
That's all for the All Stars
After 6 innings in FOFC this evening,
NL Post WWII leads 5 to 0

As we get ready to start
the top of the 7th
Bench is talking to Hays
Looking to Bill Russle for a sign
Bench waits for the pitch
His bat is coiled
It's a 3-2 count
Here comes the pay-off pitch...
There's a hard bouncer to Palmer's left
He's over...
Makes the pick-up...
Over to Gonzalez...
Bench is out!
A sparkling glove hand pick-up
by Deacon Palmer!
One away
While we wait for the next batter
Let's see what's happening in other games

Negro League II winning over
Japanese League 6 to 0
Late 20th with the lead over
AL Post WWII 6 to 3
Franco comfortably ahead for Late 20th
Dead Ball Era leads Negro League I 3 to 2
Caribbean and Left Outs are tied at 9
Old Timers is comfortably ahead
of AL Pre WWII 7 to 1
NL Pre WWII besting Turn of Century 8 to 3

One away, nobody on base
Spahn stands ready at the plate
Bo peers in for the sign...

Shakes off the first one...
Likes the second one
The southpaw Knowles delivers
the 2 strike pitch
Off speed pitch on the way...
And Spahn watches it go by
for the third strike
Two up, two down

Now up in the NL Post WWII seventh
will be Joe Morgan
Joe is hitting at .270 on the year
He has 58 hits in 215 at bats
NL Post WWII's leadoff hitter...
Joe has scored 51 runs on the season
Knowles adjusts his cap...
Now he's set
With a 3-1 count, the pitch
It's a high pop-up in back of short
Nights is under it
Waiting..Waiting...
My, this one's a "major league" pop-up
Nights snags it for the out
1-2-3, nothing across...

It's time for the 7th inning stretch!

The left fielder Gazelle
will lead off for the All Stars
He'll be followed by David Gonzalez
And then Harry Hays
Gazelle is 0 for 2 today, with 0 home runs
Spahn peers in for the sign
Gazelle is a formidable opponent
Warren has allowed 3 home runs
versus righties this year
And Gerald is no ordinary hitter
Spahn winds and delivers
It's a pop-up in back of short
Banks is under it
Still waiting...
Now he clutches it for the out
One out
Due up next is David Gonzalez

A big bopper coming to the plate...
Batting clean-up, David Gonzalez
Gonzalez is 0 for 2 today
David grounded out last time around
Spahn appears to be throwing
just as hard now as when the game began
And, even more importantly...
just as effectively!
The pitch to Gonzalez...
Long fly to left
Aaron has a long run...
He's there and hauls it in
Gonzalez is retired on a fairly deep fly

All Stars' catcher Hays
is up next
Hays has a .378 average
against lefthanders
He is .344 overall
Spahn appears to be throwing
just as hard now as when the game began
And, even more importantly...
just as effectively!
Spahn fires
Slow ground ball
Mathews is charging it
He fires it to first
He's OUT
We head to the 8th...
The score is still NL Post
WWII 5, All Stars 0

The NL Post WWII right fielder, Clemente,
will lead off
He'll be followed by Hank Aaron
And then Stan Musial
NL Post WWII leads 5 to 0
Knowles steps off the rubber...
Adjusts his cap...
Now he's ready
Knowles brings it to the plate
Clemente hits a screamer at Bo Knowles
Knowles picks it up and fires to first
The throw pulls Gonzalez off the bag
Gonzalez swipes with the glove

Clemente is out!
Nice play by Gonzalez
One down for NL Post WWII
Hank Aaron is still in the on-deck circle
and Stan Musial is looking
for a bat in the dugout

Now batting will be Hank Aaron
The left fielder is walking to the plate
Bases empty... one out
NL Post WWII up by 5
Knowles wastes no time
He has the sign from Hays
Now to the belt, here it is...
Fly ball to left
Gazelle is under it
He makes the grab
Two down
Knowles retires two in a row

Facing Knowles now is Musial
Willie Mays heads to the on deck circle
Eddie Mathews waits in the hole
Musial is 1 for 3 today
Stan hit a two-run homer last time up
Stan waits...
He steps out as Knowles takes too long
Now he's back in the box
The southpaw Knowles delivers
the 3-1 pitch
It is a slow change...
Musial'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 Stan
Pflaggstettler 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
Musial slides into second base
but it was not necessary
Two-bagger for the NL Post
WWII first baseman

Willie Mays will be coming up
Tommy Lasorda loves the pop in his bat
A base hit should score Musial
Knowles looks down at Hays for the sign
Shakes him off once... twice...

Now he has the pitch he wants
It's coming down the pike
Struck him out on a terrible pitch
That was right over the
heart of the plate
with no movement on it...
and Mays swung right over the top of it!
Lucky Mr. Knowles!
That retires the side
NL Post WWII threatens but fails to score
Here in the top of the 8th

Persimmon Pflaggstettler stops
at the on deck circle
Takes a couple more practice swings
Now heads for the plate
So far this year Pflaggstettler
is batting .299
He has 10 doubles, 3 triples
9 homeruns with 39 RBI's
and 5 stolen bases
Pflaggstettler readies himself
for the pitch
The southpaw Spahn's delivery
on the 3-2 pitch
Change up...
Pflaggstettler hits a fly ball to right
Clemente is under it...
He's got it

Nobody on, one away for FOFC
Up now is Bullock
Bullock is batting .283
with 8 HR's this year
Spahn is ready quickly
And the delivery by Spahn
Swung on and hit on the nose to left
Aaron picks it up on one bounce
Flips it to second...
Bullock is on with a sharply hit single
He hit a curve ball...
and he was just waiting on it

Walking up to the plate now is Treacy
Deacon Palmer waits on deck
Treacy looks down toward
the third base coach
Treacy cocks his bat
And the cripple pitch...
There's a fly ball into straight-away left
Aaron one hands it...
OUT!
That's two away

Palmer scuffs up the lines in the box
Now he is ready
Palmer has hit 3 home runs this year
Warren looks for the sign he wants...
Shakes off the first one
But he likes the next
Spahn goes into his stretch...
Looks at Bullock...
He fires one to Musial...
Bullock dives back in
That's his best move to first...
Musial lobs it back
Now Spahn comes home
Palmer hits a slider to the
third base side of short
Banks going hard to his right...
Backhands the groundball...
He stops, plants, and throws to second...
And gets the forceout on
the sliding Bullock
Putting an end to FOFC's inning
That wraps up the inning for FOFC
So After 8 innings
NL Post WWII has 5 runs,
8 hits and no errors
While FOFC has no runs,
3 hits and no errors
FOFC has left 3 stranded
NL Post WWII has failed to bring home 3

Mathews is making his way to home plate
He's digging out his "spot"
in the batter's box
He's taking several practice swings

Bending from side to side

Finally, he's ready
Eddie comes to the plate batting .263
with 17 home runs

He is 1 for 3 so far today
He's ready
The pitch is on the way
Mathews sends a routine
ground ball to first
Gonzalez takes it on one hop
Flips it to Knowles
Easy out
One away
While we wait for the next batter
Let's see what's happening in other games
These scores are final...
Negro League II is the winner
over Japanese League 6 to 2
Late 20th topped AL Post WWII 6 to 3
Hunter takes the loss, his
record drops to 4-6
Martinez the winner, he's now 2-2
Dead Ball Era cuffed Negro League I 5 to 2
Caribbean nipped Left Outs 10 to 9
Drysdale takes the loss, his
record drops to 3-3
Luque the winner, he's now 4-3
Old Timers easily defeated
AL Pre WWII 7 to 2
NL Pre WWII topped Turn of Century 8 to 5
And here in FOFC NL Post WWII ahead 5 to 0

The Dallas-born power hitting,
Ernie Banks, is approaching the plate
Time is called...
Banks has asked the ump to clean the plate
We'll be ready in a second...
OK, now we are ready again
He's ready
The pitch to Banks...
Banks pounds a grounder toward
Palmer at third
Deacon moves in front of it...
Whoops... a bad bounce
But Palmer stayed with it
Over to first and Banks is retired
Nice play by the FOFC third baseman
That's two away
Nights comes over from his shortstop
position to say a few words to Knowles
Johnny Bench will be next up...

Johnny Bench will face Knowles
Righty against righty
Johnny has 2 strike outs today
Not unusual for him, though
He has a nasty habit of doing that
Bench is set for the pitch
Here comes the cripple pitch
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!

A. J. Tucker will step into the
box to start the inning
FOFC would like to get some
runners on board
Tucker is 0 for 3 today
A. J. popped out last time around
Bench flashes the sign to Spahn
Spahn rocks and fires
Slider, down and in...
Tucker manages to hit a shallow fly
Mays charging hard... dives...
Great diving catch by Mays!
He slid several feet after
making that stab

One away, nobody on...
bottom of the 9th
The first base coach exhorting
Nights to get on base...

One of those perennial war cries
Nights looking for his first base knock
here this evening...
He is 0 for 3
Nights awaits the pitch
The southpaw delivers the 0-1 pitch
Slow ground ball
Banks is charging it
He fires it to first
He's OUT
Two up, two down for the All Stars

While David Gonzalez heads
for the on deck circle
Gerald Gazelle makes his way to the plate
Gerald steps out of the batter's
box to get the sign
Gazelle is 0 for 3 today
He popped out last time up
Set now is Gazelle
The 3-2 delivery by the lefthander
And Gazelle will sit down...
strike three called
And that will do it for FOFC
NL Post WWII wins 5 to 0
Spahn gets credit for the win
He threw a shut-out at them
Babson takes the loss
The hitting star for NL Post WWII
was Stan Musial
He was 2 for 4 with a homerun
And that wraps things up
So long from FOFC.

As the players are heading into the dug out...Howser looks over at Maglie and says "Oh boy...Benton's really going to be grumpy now."

Maglie replies, "Thank God, I'm not you..." and he mumbles "I need a drink" as he walks off.

Maglie walks into the clubhouse with Howser right behind. I peak my head out of my office, I look around and see that no players are with in ear shot so I say, "Hey, Sal, think you can teach our pitchers to keep the ball in the park." Then I shut my door and go back to sulking.

Sal turns around and looks at Howser...



who is cracking up. Finally after composing himself he says, "I guess you are me."

As I walk to the the dugout I pass Howser and Sal who are obviously discussing something...I ignore them and go on my way...

"I hope we win tonight, so he'll lighten up. He's going to give himself a heartattack with this stress he's carrying around." Howser Comments.

"Well at least we have our stopper going tonight...Neilsen's been tough in these situations...

GAME 61 - June 4 - Radio Broadcast

I see by the clock that we're
ready to go here in FOFC
Morgan steps in to start things
off for NL Post WWII
Let's set the FOFC defense for you
Battery mates are Nielsen and Bullock
Covering the corners at first and third
Will be Potpie and Palmer
The keystone combo has Treacy at second
And Nights playing short
In the outfield
From left to right
Its Gunner, Tucker and Pflaggstettler
Now Morgan steps into the batter's box
This game's about to begin
Morgan finishes his stretching
Let's play some ball...
The lefthander delivers
Morgan swings and misses
STRIKE THREE!
Nielsen strikes out Joe Morgan
So one up and one gone

Coming up for NL Post WWII is Pete Rose
Nobody on base, one out
Rob Nielsen steps off the
mound toward second
Gives the resin bag a toss
Now he toes the rubber...
He's ready to go
Nielsen is into his windup
Here's the pitch
Curveball, inside corner, low...
Swung on...
And lined to left for a base hit
No chance to get that one

Rose takes a walking lead
Rose has stolen 2 of 3 bases this year
Nielsen flicks one underhand to first...
Rose scrambles back in time

Mays is up next
One gone, top of the 1st
Hank Aaron moves out on deck
Willie will be facing the

He has a .290 average overall
But southpaws are his nemesis...
He has only a .243 average
against lefty hurlers
Waiting for the pitch is Mays
Nielsen goes into his stretch...
Looks at Rose...
He fires one to Potpie...
Rose dives back in
That's his best move to first...
Potpie lobs it back
Now Nielsen comes home
Swung on and missed by Mays,
he's down on strikes
Two down
Bullock asks for a new ball
He calls time and trots out to the mound

Gibson gets credit for the win
Bunning notches the save
Nielsen takes the loss
The hitting star for NL Post WWII
was Roberto Clemente
He was 2 for 4 with a homerun
And that wraps things up
So long from FOFC.


Note: if there is a confusing section in the above text, like a repeated portion...during the game the Post-nationals elected to do a double steal. I thought I had hit the wrong button and didn't want to penalize them by having them run a play the were not going to run on their own. So I undid the play, but when I rolled (clicked) for the batter to swing they ran the double steal again...hence the duplicate information

GAME 62 - June 5 - Radio Broadcast

Welcome to Shadowball Stadium!
And in a moment we'll be ready
for the game between
Negro League II and FOFC
The ump shouts "PLAY BALL!"
We're ready to go here in Negro League II
A. J. Tucker to lead it off for FOFC
Now Verdell delivers
Tucker swings hard
It's off the handle
The ball and half the bat
are heading for short
Brown makes the right choice
Scoops up the ball
Tosses to first
A. J. is too quick!

Tucker inches away from first base
Mathis' move keeps Tucker guessing
He doesn't have a very good lead

Nights fouls off the bunt attempt
The count goes to 1 and 2, we'll have
to see if they keep the bunt play on
Beautifully placed bunt toward Marcelle
He races in...
Scoops it up, bare-handed...
Only play is at first
OUT!
Tucker advances easily
Nice job bunting, as usual, by Nights
Credit him with a sacrifice
With one gone
FOFC will have Gerald Gazelle coming up
A dangerous hitter, no doubt about it

So that brings up Gerald Gazelle
the FOFC left fielder
Before getting ready
Gazelle checks out the defensive alignment
Mathis peers in for the sign
Verdell has allowed only 2 home runs
versus righties this year
And this is in over 90 innings
But Gerald is no ordinary hitter
The pitch is on the way
Hanging curve...
Swung on...
Gazelle turned that one around
in a BIG WAY...
Forget it, that one is long
gone... a home run
Poles didn't even move

Now batting will be Jeeberoni Potpie
The first baseman is walking to the plate
Bases empty... one out
FOFC up by 2
Jeeberoni is 9th in the
league in home runs
with a 16 so far in 1900
Potpie waits patiently
The pitch to Potpie...
Potpie sends one way high in the air
It is drifting toward the
first base dugout
Beckwith is over...
Ouch!...
That ball got a fan right
in the breadbasket
He even lost the souvenir
After stopping it with his abdomen
It bounced to a kid a couple seats away
. . . Potpie back in the box
And here comes the next pitch
Jeeberoni Potpie offers at the curveball,
but checks his swing
Oh, Potpie couldn't get the
bat out of the way
It's a soft line drive to Oliver
Marcelle for the out
Potpie never even left the batter's box
Two down
Beckwith asks for a new ball
He calls time and trots out to the mound
A conference going on between
Beckwith and Mathis

Now here's Hays
Mathis is asking for a new ball...
And now gets one...
He's set now
Mathis kicks and fires
Big bender, low and inside...
Swung on...
Line single to Hill in right...
Picking it up in a hurry is Hill...
Hays takes a wide turn...
But stays at first base
as the throw comes in

Mathis looks down at Treacy as he steps in
Sean is ready to go
Hays will be running if it's hit
Mathis tosses the resin bag aside
He steps on the rubber...
It's coming down the pike
That's ball four
Treacy will trot down to first
Hays is now down on second

So FOFC has something going here
in the top of the 1st
2 on with 2 runs in
Righthanded Dan Fouts stepping
to the plate
Mathis is asking for a new ball...
The ump throws him a new one...
Mathis looks in...
Now he's ready
Now Verdell delivers
Here's a slow curve...
Fouts slashes a shallow fly towards Poles
He's charging hard... dives...
Makes the catch!
After one-half inning
It's FOFC 2, Twos coming to bat

FOFC has taken the field
here in the bottom of the first...
Here's the way they look, defensively
In the outfield from left to right
Gazelle in left...
Tucker in center...
And Treacy in right

The infield, third to first
Fouts will play the hot corner
Nights is at short
Over at second, Blade
and at first base Potpie
Taking the mound is Mighty and
his battery mate is Hays
Negro League II left fielder, Spotswood
Poles, will lead off
Poles has 15 doubles this year
Mighty has the sign he wants
The southpaw delivers the 3-1 pitch
Fastball, busted in on the hands
Poles manages to get a piece of it
Bouncing it over the mound
Nights cuts it off in front of the bag
Rifles a throw to Potpie...
And Poles is called out on a close play
Negro League II with one away
Mighty steps off the mound as
he waits for Wild Bill Wright to
come to the plate

The center fielder, Wild Bill Wright
will be up next for Negro League II
We'll see how they pitch to Wright
Wright waits for the pitch
Mighty brings it to the plate
Wright rips a hard drive
off a hanging curve
That will be in there for extra bases
Wright is around first, heading for two...
Tucker is up with it and
fires it in quickly
Wild Bill pulls up sharply at second...
A stand-up double for the Negro
League II center fielder
Wild Bill also ups his hitting
streak to 23 games!
That is Wright's 1st hit today

And it brings up Willard Brown
On deck is John Beckwith
Jud Wilson in the hole
Brown looks down toward the third
base coach, Willie Randolph
Brown waits for the pitch
His bat is coiled
Mighty rocks and fires
Groundball to in front of home
Wright is trying to advance
to third base...
A quick glance at the lead runner...
The play is to first...
And Brown is out

Beckwith walks to the plate
Mighty likes the sign
Here's the 0-1 offering
Beckwith swings and lifts one toward left
Gazelle drifts over slowly...
He is under it now...
And makes the easy catch...
Al Mighty holds the Twos
scoreless in the first

Barrett Blade stops at the on deck circle
Takes a couple more practice swings
Now heads for the plate
Blade is trying to get comfortable
in the box
Digging that back foot in
All set, Blade is ready for the pitch
Now the delivery, here is is...
Blade dribbles one out in
front of home plate
Beckwith pounces on it
Up with it
Quickly to first...
He's out!

Mighty steps in...
He pounds the bat on the plate
Now he is ready
Mathis is happy with the sign
The fans want the "K"
Verdell winds and comes in
with the 0-2 pitch
Another hook for strike three!
Mighty just stood there looking
Two men gone, nobody on
FOFC leads by 2

Tucker now at the plate
Jeff Nights waits on deck
Tucker goes through his routine
of settling in
Mathis has the sign from Beckwith
Here's the southpaw's delivery
Curve...Swung on by Tucker...
Lined right back over the mound...
Through into center field for a single

Tucker moves away from first base...
He has 14 stolen bases on the season
Mathis steps off the rubber
Looks Tucker back to the bag

So with 1 on and 2 outs
FOFC sends their shortstop,
Jeff Nights, up to face Mathis
Hard-hitting Gerald Gazelle is walking
towards the on-deck circle
Nights is at .298 on the season
Mathis ready quickly, looks
in for the sign
The southpaw Mathis' delivery
Drilled deep to left field
This one is deep!
BACK-BACK-BACK-BACK-BACK,
GONE!!!
That is Jeff Nights' 5th
home run of the year.

Gerald Gazelle will step
in to face Mathis next
If he gets on, Jeeberoni
Potpie will follow
The outfield shades towards
left for Gazelle
Left-hander Verdell Mathis
prepares for the pitch
to the right-handed swinging Gazelle
Here's the windup and the 3-0 delivery
Swung on and hit into deep left
Poles is going back
Back... Back... Back...
FOFC goes deep twice... back-to-back!
FOFC leads 5 to 0

Planting his right foot
Potpie is set in the box...

The infield shifts slightly to the left
for the right hand hitting Potpie
Looking for his first hit today
Potpie is 0 for 1
Potpie awaits the delivery
Verdell winds
Kicks... and delivers
Potpie pulls one into left field
Hooking away from Poles
Spotswood is there
He's got it for the out
That's it for FOFC
Here at Shadowball Stadium, After
1 and a half innings,
FOFC has 5 runs, 6 hits and no errors
While Negro League II has no runs,
one hit and no errors
FOFC has left 2 on base
Negro League II has stranded 1

Jud Wilson will step into the
box to start the inning
Negro League II would like to
get some runners on board
Wilson digs in on the left side
of the plate facing the lefty Mighty
Hays flashes the sign to Mighty
Here's Mighty's windup
And the lefthander comes home with it
Good slider, inside part of the plate
Wilson gets the bat on it...
Slams a sharp grounder to the right side
Blade grabs it...
Throws to first...
OUT!
So one up and one gone

Mighty glares in at Hill
Pete Hill just calmly stares right back
Infield at regular depth
The left-hander Mighty is now ready
Mighty winds and delivers
The 1-2 pitch
Long fly ball to right field
This one is deep!
YOU CAN KISS THAT BALL GOOD-BYE!
That is Pete Hill's 4th
home run of the year.

Sam Bankhead is up next

Ready now for Mighty to come set
Hays flashes the sign...
Mighty waves it off...
Now he's happy
The southpaw Mighty's delivery
on the 3-1 pitch
Marcelle sends a routine
ground ball to first

GAME 63 - June 6 - Radio Broadcast

Welcome to Shadowball Stadium!
And in a moment we'll be ready
for the game between
Negro League II and FOFC
The ump shouts "PLAY BALL!"
We're ready to go here in Negro League II
Jeff Nights to lead it off for FOFC
Now ready, here it is...
Base hit to center for Nights
Wild Bill Wright is trying to get to it
This might be stretched into a double!
No... he decides to hold up

Nights inches away from the base
From the lead looks like Nights may go...
Throw to first, back in time...
Close play...
Now he's staying closer to the bag

The center fielder, A. J.
Tucker, is up next
Not sure, Tucker steps out
He's checking the signs again to be sure
Dick Howser re-delivers them
A. J. seems to be relaxed
and ready for the pitch
He steadies his bat now
Wickware brings it home
It's in on the hands
Inside... ball four
Tucker trots to first as
Nights takes second

Persimmon Pflaggstettler coming up
No score...
The ballgame is just under way
Pflaggstettler is at .300 on the season
He is hitting .317 against righties
Pflaggstettler, a righthand hitter
Waits patiently for the
pitch from Wickware
The righthander Wickware delivers
Pflaggstettler tees off on a
Frank Wickware fastball
This one's deep...
Wright going back in center
Off the fence!
Pflaggstettler's digging for two...
Wright misplays the carom!
Wright's miscue allows Pflaggstettler
to reach third
Score it a double... and an
error on Wild Bill Wright
That clears the bases
Now Pflaggstettler has 2 RBI's in 1900

One aboard, nobody out
Up next is Potpie
Potpie has hit 16 home runs this year
Frank gets the sign from Beckwith
Righthander Wickware's delivery
Potpie rolls one toward Willard Brown
He scoops it and fires to
first...close play
OUT, says the first base umpire
Joe Adcock throws his hands up
in disbelief
Negro League II gets the first
out of the inning

Walking up to the plate now is Gunner
FOFC leading in the game
FOFC ahead 3 to 0
Right-hander Wickware eyes
the lefty Gunner
Here's the 2 strike offering
Gunner swings and misses
STRIKE THREE!
Wickware strikes out Stan Gunner
Two men gone, nobody on
FOFC leads by 3

Deacon Palmer is coming to the plate
Palmer is batting .304 with
3 round trippers in 1900
Wickware wastes no time
He takes the first sign
Here's the righthander's delivery
Palmer slaps a hard grounder past short
Poles is over to pick it up
He tosses it back to second
Palmer will hold with a clean single

Palmer takes a three step lead
Wickware's move keeps Palmer guessing
He doesn't have a very good lead

Hays is ready to bat
On first is Palmer
He's not known for his speed
Hitching up his pants...

Hays gazes out to the mound
And Frank studies the sign
from Beckwith...
Now he's got it
Wickware brings it to the plate
Hays connects on the Wickware fastball...
This one is really smoked...
Poles starts back...
Now he just stops to look
Hays got all of this one....
Goodbye baseball!
Palmer scores in front of him

There is going to be a pitching change
Frank Wickware will head to the dugout
as Max Manning will come on here
in the top of the 1st
Manning has appeared in 29 games
His record is 6-5 with a 5.95 ERA
over 56 innings

FOFC second baseman, Barrett
Blade, is up next
Manning steps on the rubber...
Looks in for the sign
The pitch is on the way
Blade cuts on a curve that
misses in the dirt
That ball is trapped nicely by Beckwith
Blade was badly fooled by Manning's
big breaking curve
STRIKE THREE!
Barrett was a little overanxious
After one-half inning
It's FOFC 5, Twos coming up

Poles saunters to the plate
He does some stretching...
Knocks the dirt from his spikes...
Now he steps into the batter's box
Poles scuffs up the lines around the box
Fozborg steps off the rubber...
Adjusts his cap...
Now he's ready
Now Sirr delivers
Curveball, inside corner, low...
Swung on...
And lined to right for a base hit
No chance to get that one

Wright gets set at the plate
Time is called...
Wright has asked the ump
to clean the plate
We'll be ready in a second...
OK, now we are ready again
Fozborg wastes no time
He has the sign from Hays
Fozborg's 3-1 pitch...
Drilled down the right-field line
It is...
a FAIR BALL by about a foot in the corner
Base hit for Wright!
Persimmon Pflaggstettler
is chasing after it...
Wright will have at least
two, maybe three...
It's a...
Triple for Wild Bill Wright
Poles scores from first

Brown settles in at the plate
Fozborg eyes Brown intently
Now the delivery, here is is...
It's just misses outside
Brown checks his swing
Hays appeals to the first base umpire
It will be ball four

It will be Wilson to face Fozborg
The outfield's shaded towards right
With Wilson at the plate
Fozborg adjusts his cap...
Now he's set
The pitch to Wilson...
Curve in the dirt... and Wilson holds up
Looked like he went around from here
But the plate umpire says no
Hays asks the third base ump's opinion
He motions it's a walk...
Wilson will take first
Bases are tenanted

The catcher, John Beckwith
will be up next for Negro League II
Fozborg is on the first-base
side of the rubber...
Fozborg brings it to the plate
A curve...
Just outside, ball four!
He tried a breaking ball with
three balls on Beckwith
Didn't work
That forces in a run

Pete Hill steps into the box
Watching Fozborg, Hill wiggles the bat
He's ready for the pitch
After getting set, Hill waits on the pitch
He brings it home
It gets past Hays!
It's scored a passed ball.
The pitch didn't look that bad
Fozborg must have crossed him up!

Pete Hill steps into the box
Fozborg is happy with the sign
Fozborg checks the runners
Slow roller to second
Wilson breaks for home
Taken by Blade
Over to first
In time!
Score It: 4-3
With one down, up next is Sam Bankhead
To be followed by Oliver Marcelle

Now batting will be Sam Bankhead
Bankhead asks the ump for time
Now he's back in
Bankhead is ready for the pitch
Here comes the pitch
Grounded into the hole
Beckwith is coming home
Potpie comes up with it
Over to first
NOT IN TIME!
Bankhead gets an infield hit
Beckwith scores from third!

Bankhead looks like he
might be going . . .
There he goes!
Here's the peg . . .
HE'S IN THERE!

Oliver Marcelle steps into the box
Marcelle digs into the box
Marcelle is waiting for the pitch
The pitch
Flyball to left
it's caught
Bankhead has a chance to move up...
Bankhead is trying to advance
to third base...
Here's the play...
He's OUT!

It's the All Stars' turn at bat
here in the top of the 2nd
Sean Treacy, Jeff Nights, and A. J. Tucker
are due up to face righthander Max Manning
Manning steps off the mound toward second
Gives the resin bag a good squeeze...

Now he toes the rubber...
He's ready to go
Manning's righthanded delivery...
Treacy hits a screamer at Willard Brown
Brown picks it up and fires to first
The throw pulls Wilson off the bag
Wilson swipes with the glove

Treacy is out!
Nice play by Wilson
One down for FOFC
Jeff Nights is in the on-deck circle
ready to make his way to
the plate for FOFC

Facing Manning now is Nights
A. J. Tucker heads to the on deck circle
Persimmon Pflaggstettler waits in the hole
Jeff is hitting at .305 on the year
He has 65 hits in 213 at bats
FOFC's leadoff hitter...
Jeff has scored 34 runs on the season
All set, Nights is ready for the pitch
Max rocks and fires
Nights rips the curve to left-center...
Turning at the sound of the bat
Wright is racing back to the fence...
He reaches up for the drive...
It's over his head!
He plays the bounce off the fence
But he needn't hurry
Nights will lope into second with a double
(Ballpark Double Effect)

A. J. Tucker, the center fielder,
strides to the plate
Tapping the plate is Tucker
He has 14 steals this year
13th in the league!
If he gets on Manning will have to
watch him closely
Tucker is waiting on the pitch
Manning looks back towards second...

The pitch
Curveball, in and low
Tucker hits it to Wilson at first
Takes it cleanly...
Races to the bag...
It's going to be close...
And...
Out is the call
That could have gone either way
Nights is now perched over at third
That's the second out of the inning
While we wait for Persimmon Pflaggstettler
to get a new bat
Let's point out that FOFC is 4 and
6 in their last ten games

That will bring up right fielder,
Persimmon Pflaggstettler
Pflaggstettler a righty
in the batter's box
facing the righthanded Manning
Pflaggstettler readies himself
for the pitch
The pitch is on the way
Hit right back to Manning
On to first and Pflaggstettler is gone
That's all for FOFC
After 1 and a half innings in Negro
League II this evening,
The score is tied at 5

Radcliffe isn't happy at
all with that call

He doesn't seem to be getting a great lead

Pflaggstettler coming to bat

Manager Update

We were able to scratch out a much needed win against the Twos...unfortunately, in the process we lost Fozborg for a while. I haven't gotten the news back from the doctors, but I'm sure he'll go on the 15 day DL at least. That's going to hurt. Not counting last nights start, he was pitching very well. I probably should have left him in relief where he was doing well. I just felt he had earned a turn in the rotation, and because we haven't been playing well, I thought a shake up might light a fire or two...

I need to consider calling someone up to help eat the innings. Especially with the way we've been pitching lately.

I wonder if we have anyone down on the farm that could help us for a while until Foz is back in shape....

This would be a good time if anyone reading would like a part time spot on the roster...speak now. I'm going to see if the game will allow me to add a player after the season starts.

Hey Skip,

Not to be too Rob Nielsen about it-- but that's twice in a row that I've been player of the game with two dingers and been sat the next day. It's kind of hard to build up a rythm that way.

ok so you must be Gazelle...seriously...it's been so long I have a hard time remembering

Son, you are playing great...and you are a dynamite player against left handed pitchers. Obviously, judging from your last few games. I also love your speed and defense, but against righties you haven't be quite as productive. Plus you tell me who I should sit down in order to play you against a right handed pitcher....

Pflaggsettler kills righties, Gunner is a left handed hitting outfielder who has been clutch against the right handed starters and Tuckers has been a great table setter for us...

But you're right... you've played well enough to deserve more at bats. I'll try to think of ways to get you in the lineup more often...


OOC - Gazelle is a 5L meaning he is exceptionally good against LHP, so he typically goes in for the LH hitting Gunner in lineups where a lefty pitches. Pflaggsettler is actually better against RHP (exceptionaly better), but because most LHP aren't as good against RH hitters he still does well when a Lefty pitches (but you'll notice I occasionally sit him in these situations to give Ton or someone else some at bats).

Thanks for checking in...

Just before the game...I find Gazelle, pat him on the back and say..."it's a lefty tonight. I've not only got you in the lineup, but in the prime spot. Do your thing boy, do your thing..."
