I have observed that baseball is not unlike war, and when you get right down to it, we batters are the heavy artillery.

"The one constant through all the years has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It's been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt, and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game, is a part of our past. It reminds us of all that once was good, and what could be again." - James Earl Jones in Field of Dreams (1989)

Sportsmanship I cannot believe that the purpose of life is to be "happy." I think the purpose of life is to be useful, to be responsible, to be honorable, to be compassionate.

The Merchants jumped out with 5 runs in the first and hung on late, as the Bandits loaded the bases and brought the tying run to the plate in the top of the sixth. However, Nick Johnson came out of the pen and thwarted the rally with a punchout. He allowed one hit in a scoreless seventh inning to earn the save.

Had an umpire in our game last night call a 45 foot bounce pass/curveball (that bounced up and over the plate)... a strike. Claiming, "If a ball bounces and hits someone, that is a HBP..." Correct bud good job, "and if it bounces and is over the plate it is a strike." WRONG. Thankfully a few pitches later our left fielder Steven Petrie took a pitch deep and gone. See something new every day. ~ Tyler Rice 15
