      Well this is about baseball if you couldn't tell from the title but it's all I have to write about so just deal with it.(this should be ore exciting that the others)

      Well the last game we actually played was against Howland Black. They are suposed to be the better of the two Howland teams but I don't think so any more. Anyway, I think we run ruled them I think, it was that long ago. Tow of our players got thrown out of the game and Coach suspended them for the next game we played which got moved so thwy are out for that game when we make it up. I went 0 for 2 with a ground out and a strike out and got walked once and stole second base. That game was the last we played in the past two weeks.

      Today we were suposed to play in Newton Falls but that game got rained out at the last minuet because of a huge storm that rolled through right after warm-ups. The storm was so bad that we could barely see to drive home but we made it back safely. I saw lightning about three times before warm-ups when we were playing catch. Coach was not going to start the regular starters because we beat them 16-4 (I think) last time, so I was the starting catcher today, but that never happened. Well that's all for now but I guarentee there will be more baseball to come.

      Until next game,
      Mike

      Well baseball continues and our team has won all 5 games and we have a game on Sunday at 6:30.
      Our last game we played Girard and I had an inside-the-park home run. We beat tghem 13-3 in 5 innings instead of the regular 7. I am also an umpire forthe NIles Youth League some of the games are absolutly the most boring games in the word but others are a little more fun.

      Well its baseball time again and the team that I'm on is one of the best in the region. We are 3-0. We played last night at Howland and we beat them 11-8. We play with 10 players on the active roster and I was the Extra Player for 6 of the7 innings. In the 7th inning I was brought in to close the game and I did that very succesfully considering the fact that I'm not exactly Curt Schillling. I through four pitches and got the three outs that won us the game. When I was put in to pitch there was a runner on second and a runner on third, the count on the batter that was up was three balls and one strike. I was nervous when I went out there but I closed the game and only two people scorred.
