MAY 3, 2017 - THIS TURNED OUT TO BE THE LAST AND FINAL GAME FOR THE NATIONAL LEAGUE CHAMPIONSHIP AS THE BLUES TOOK CONTROL AND ENDED VICTORIOUS ENDING A 9 MONTH QUEST TO THE CHAMPIONSHIP. THE BLUES NEVER LOST THE INCENTIVE TO COME OUT AHEAD EACH INNING. THE FINAL SCORE WAS BLUE 26 - WHITES 13. THE WHITES WERE SHUT OUT TWICE, WHILE THE BLUES SCORED 8 RUNS IN THE TOP OF THE LAST INNING. CONGRATS TO TEAM BLUE FOR A GREAT SEASON.
APRIL 28, 2017 - It was a game that would turn into a 'do or die' situation for the Whites or 'still alive' Blues. The visiting Blues scored first with 5 runs, but by the 3rd inning the Blues peter'd out while the Whites, with the 'never give up attitude', scored the maximum runs (5) in innings 4-5-6 to take the lead and keep it by holding down the Blues to only 9 runs. Congratulations to the Whites for their outstanding performance in the 1st half, only to continue on their winning style in the 2nd half.
What were the turnaround plays? 'THE CATCHES'
#1- 1st Basemen known to his fans as "Bucket Bob", went into the spectator stands to grab a foul ball to halt any hopes of a rally from the Blues.
#2 - And most important, a line shot to Left Fielder, George Buk, grabbed and coddled the ball, to signify the 3rd and final out to win the game.
Of course it goes without saying that the whole team banded together and pretty well kept up with the hitting streaks as our "Spiritual" Leader, Fred C. says ( by the way was the only one to hit it outta the park ) "when the bottom hits we win." Hey Fred....How true it is !!
