Whately Pioneers 11, Chicopee Skipmucks 1
Whately Takes Gentlemen's Cup
OK....This is the final Chapter of Your Whately pioneers 2009.
An interesting Summer
We've been to Simsbury, The Shire, The foot of Mt Greylock, Hartford, South Hadley, Longmeadow Day, Chicopee Day at Szot Park, Nashua New Hampshire and our own Herlihy. Every game except one was a close good game or we were safely ahead except the Massacre at Adams, and even that was fun.
It also rained a lot and we lost a teammate.
The Pioneers Take the Field
But today we play for the Gentlemen's Cup, and well do it again September 19, 2010. The winner will take it home with them, just like this year.
We give the ball to Dog today, and after an opening base knock by Beer Frame, Dog gets Money, the dangerous Old School and Stones for a nice quick half inning. "Mike Mayhem" made a nice play on Old School's shot to center Garden.
Mayhem and Spider cashed in 2 safeties and some fine base running for 2 Aces and Dog tood the square in the 2nd with a lead he would protect thru
Pioneers Pull Away
Behind the big offensive days of Mayhem, Connie, Spider and Bullet, and the great hurling of Dog, Bullet and Terminator, the Whately Pioneers cruise to an 11-1 Gentlemen's Cup victory on a beautiful warm September afternoon to cap the 2009 season. The Skipmucks are a good up and coming team and gentlemen to boot, and we'll see them 3 times next year. Let's have a great 2010.
