July 22, double-header preview

Mike Weiss has done a fantastic job organizing for this week.  It was difficult to limit the game with so many consistent players, some newer friends, some out of town visitors, and the return of Jesse Engaard!

So here we go with the 2nd double-header of the year!  Game 1 starts at 6:30 SHARP!  Projected starters D. Schauer vs. J. Grace!!  Game 2 9pm beginning.

There is a 20% chance of rain today, let’s hope it holds off!

Team Around the Horn looks to rebound against the strong play of Phundamentally Sound.

TAtH slugger MIke Weiss made his return known

Team Around the Horn brought some bats with them. Mike Weiss came home with a bang (4-4, walk, 2 runs, 2SB) and Justin Stuhltrager (4-5, 2runs, SB + 8inning complete game with 6K’s for the win) stood out and Phundamentally Sound starter Jonny Szczesniak was outlasted. He began the game with 4 shutout innings until TAtH got something going in the 5th and then fell apart in the 6th.

There was a lot of hype, and a lot of people watching with anticipation as the game got going at 6pm. We decided to stop it after 8innings during the 6th inning because we wanted to make sure there was fair time for game 2.
Phundamentally Sound were led by Kurt Hunte (3hits) and Kenny Steif (4RBI). The defense looked great for most of the game, but had a couple shaky innings that proved fatal. Philip Craig came in to pitch late in the game, but Team Around the Horn rallied.

Between the defense of John Paetch, the ability to put together a few big innings, and the arm of Stuhltrager (he can deal, boy!) Team Around the Horn walked away with game 1.

Wed July 8 DOUBLE HEADER preview!

The rumors are true.  This week we will be playing a double header due to the increased interest and increased hype due to the fact that Team Around the Horn’s catcher Mike Weiss will be making a short-lived return.

Justin is doing his best to accomodate the many people who wish to play in both games, but alas there are too many.  He will be working it out based on seniority and steadyness over time.  Thanks for being cool with what he cooks up.

We need the first game to start at 6pm sharp, so get there early if you want to be loose.

Kris Eden posted the amazing pics from last week into the photo pool, you can see them on the sidebar.  Thanks, Killer!

The weather for Wed; is looking good, some rain on Tuesday will hopefully soften things up and dry out.  See you at the field!

june 24 writeup forthcoming

i posted teh stats from last Wednesday.  It was a great game, no doubt.

I had a few photos that also are in the flickr group.

Safe to say it was the best game of the year.  The rumor is that Kris Eden is bringing a good camera next week, and we have squads forming already!
