Trigg County Baseball Coach Jackie Sholar shows his team he can still do it at the plate tagging a hard sliding Mark Butts in a close one. This Saturday won’t be as dusty but just as exciting.
Just like last year Reunion Game, the Diamond Club will spare no expense bringing in top talent to officiate Saturday’s game. Pictured is famed official Tulsa “Tud” Lewis who should be on hand again this year.
The rain stopped and the sun finally peeped out just as I had a good start on my ark. I hadn’t realized how expensive building materials had gotten until I received my first load of lumber. Steel was ruled out because of availability, cost and my total lack of welding skills. Just as well the whole thing has been scraped. If I had pulled it off, there wouldn’t be any poisonous snakes (no snakes actually), no Mountain Lions (again, like steel: availability), no skunks (lack of social skills), or many other animals we take for granted but are very elusive when it’s time to board. Actually, all I really had for sure was the wife (a successful Delilah I must now report), 3 Shih Tzus, a Shar Pei and an old Siamese cat, and being Price is Right and Bob Barker fans, all of us have been spayed or neutered.
The sun finally shined Saturday on the just and unjust alike. We traveled to Madisonville to do battle with Madisonville. Even though they had torrential rains their field was playable due to their tarp and it being atop a hill. Things were rolling along with Shane Banks on the mound with Trigg taking a 5-4 lead but an 8 hit 5th inning it all came tumbling down. Trigg was fielding the ball well and only had 1 or 2 errors (depending on who you believe) for the game but Madisonville started pounding the ball where Wildcats weren’t. Trigg lost 14-8. Usually when a team puts up 8 runs and has only a single error they win. Usually.For the rest of this story, read this week's Cadiz Record.
