    I'm a newbie, but I agree with George, I want to go home the later the game goes. I find coaches complain more as the games go on regardless of what you are actually calling. Their pitchers are starting to get tired and they are missing outside by 6" but now that is supposed to be a strike...in some games it may be but is it now different from the first inning? I find coach's memories to be interesting studies...

    I personally love the play. It reminds me that even players at the highest level will resort to knothole tactics.

    ...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.

    Ohh, gotcha. Yes, seems like a lot of good players out here. Good fan support as well, as lots of people that aren't parents or family show up for the games on a regular basis. Great little town.
