LITTLE LEAGUE NEWS
BY THE SPORTS DIVA

Anthony Murano for the Braves (I think) gets ready to hit his nice single out to left field. Ryan Hibbs is the catcher for the Red Sox with Chris Dumont calling balls and strikes.

BRAVES (5) vs. RED SOX (3) in 5 1/2 innings

Well, it was a perfect night for baseball and a perfect opportunity for the Braves to capture their first win of the season. They played like everyone knew they could and held it together to down the Red Sox 5-3.

The BRAVES had 11 players and everything working in their favor tonight. Eddie Cobb pitched very hard, giving up only 2 runs on 1 hit. Shelby Weston pitched 1 1/2 innings and Cody Cobb did a terrific job of holding the Red Sox in the final inning, giving up just 1 hit in the 6th, after loading the bases he buckled down and threw strikes to get the #8 and finally the #10 batter to end the game. What a great job he does hitting,

fielding and pitching. Cody had 2 singles tonight for his team. Alex Zelkan got on base with a walk, and is a strong fielder and confident 1st baseman for the Braves. Eddie Cobb had the biggest hit of the year.......a GRAND SLAM off Trevor Lyford. The stage was set for Eddie in the bottom of the 3rd as he watched patiently as one by one his teammates loaded up the bases with either a walk or a single.......he got behind in the count 0 and 2 when Trevor threw a meatball right down the middle....as soon as it left his hand....he knew it was going to take a ride and sure enough......OVER THE FENCE for a GRAND SLAM. It was a tremendous hit and a huge spark that the Braves needed. Up next was Shelby Weston, she also hit a nice grounder to left center for a double with Anthony Murano right behind her hitting a beautiful pop fly to right centerfield for a single, but later tagged out going to second to end that inning.

Eddie Cobb pitched 2 1/2 innings, facing 12 batters, striking out 8.Shelby Weston pitched 1 1/2 innings, facing 6 batters, striking out 2. Coby Cobb pitched 2 innings, facing 12 batters, striking out 4.

The RED SOX suffered their first loss tonight.....but that's not a bad thing in my book. They were undefeated, but not unbeatable. Levi Engstrom had the 1st hit for the Sox with a nice line drive hit out to left centerfield for a triple. Shayne McSwine, Colton Durant, Bobby Dugans, Kristyn Chapman and Jake McSwine all got on base with walks. Trevor Lyford's head was hanging a little low after giving up a grand slam to Eddie, but his spirits picked up after making contact with one of Eddie's pitches and hit a hard line drive to left centerfield for A stand up RBI triple. The other hit for the Sox was a ground ball hit to 1st base by Greg Hathorn, who with great speed ran out the play and was called safe. It looked like the Sox had their rally caps on at the top of the 6th and 2 outs (with 1 more run in making it 5-3) and bases loaded, but Cody Cobb performed like an old pro and shut the Sox down striking out the #10 batter to end the game.

Justin Ottmann pitched 1 inning and gave up only 1 hit.

Trevor Lyford pitched 2 innings, facing 12 batters, striking out 4.
Greg Hathorn also pitched 2 innings, facing 8 batters, striking out 4. Lucas Grinnell on the mound for the Mets and Jonah Johnson on 2nd.

RED SOX (5) vs. METS (1) Wednesday, July 13th at Davis Fields in Jct.

The RED SOX finished their regular season tonight on a high note, beating the Mets 5-1 in 5 1/2 innings. It was another beautiful night for baseball as the regular season for the little league winds down. Behind the plate tonight was Chris Dumont and Craig (bullseye without the sunglasses) Durant on the bases.
Justin Ottmann swung the bat well and drove in 2 runs on a fly ball to left field, dropping in just inside the line for a stand up double. Justin also hit a hard grounder right up the first baseline, but got robbed by Lucas Grinnell who made a tremendous save for the out. Trevor Lyford had 2 hits tonight, a single and double right up the middle. Trevor also had to catch 3 innings and did a great job. Levi Engstrom didn't get on base tonight but made some great plays fielding the ball and really had to stretch in order to make one play off a throw from third base. Greg Hathorn grounded out to first base but is making good contact with the ball in these last 2 games.
Steven Natalino got the game ball tonight for a nice single hit to left center field. Shayne McSwine, Bobby Dugans, and Jake McSwine all got on base tonight with walks.

Greg Hathorn pitched 3 innings, facing 17 batters, striking out 4.
Ryan Hibbs pitched 3 innings, facing 12 batters, striking out 8; Ryan also got a game ball for his contribution on the mound.

FOR THE METS: Derek did a super job as lead off batter and did just what you want your lead off batter to do.....get on base...Derek had a fly ball to second base and a grounder to 3rd base for 2 singles. Miranda Conklin also got on base twice with walks. Lucas Grinnell grounded out to the 1st baseman and was thrown out on a fielder’s choice. Bryan Russell grounded out to the pitcher, popped up to the short stop, but then drove in the Mets only run with an RBI double to the short stop. Spencer Leavitt, Klay Stevens, Jonah Johnson and JT Kearns were all patient in the box and got on with walks. Klay Stevens did another great job behind the plate - those new knee savers helped him out and made him that much quicker. Tyler Pelletier also did a great job on short stop, fielding the ball and finishing the plays with great throws.

Bryan Russell pitched 3 innings, facing 12 batters, striking out 7.

Lucas Grinnell pitched 2 innings, facing 13 batters, striking out 4.

Tyler Pelletier for the Mets....getting set in the box. Trevor Lyford was the catcher for Ryan Hibbs on the Red Sox.

Traditions of a Milo-ite
By Kathryn Witham
What's that I hear in the background? Could it be cartoons? I believe it is. It's the sound that I love to hate. I love the sound of cartoons because it means that one or more of my grandchildren are somewhere close. I hate it because I'm a firm believer that wasting precious time on cartoons is a mindless activity. At this moment, however, cartoons are occupying my two youngest granddaughters and so I'll let them watch for a few more minutes.

They won't let me have any peace for long. In a few minutes they'll notice t the sun is out and they'll want to begin all the activities we've planned for today. They have spent the better part of the last few days in the lake. Being in the lake is always closely followed by being hungry. I think I do remember from my childhood that swimming is......what did I tell you....."Nannie, what’s for breakfast?" I'll be right back.........

One feeding down.....several to go before the sun sets on this day believe me! Thankfully, cinnamon toast and cut up apples with a side of peanut butter to dip them in, was the breakfast choice this morning. I also insisted on juice of some kind. I say, "What kind of juice do you want?" This forces them to make a choice of what's available. They know I've got orange, tomato, and cranberry. Today's choice was orange. I know I know... you can lead a kid to juice, but you can't make them drink. My philosophy, they'll drink if they are thirsty enough.

The goal for today is to get my car cleaned. It's the worst pig sty I've ever seen. I'm totally grossed out every time I go near it. I've got my vacuum cleaner all ready to go....and there is a hose hooked to the side of this camp. A bucket of suds and some cleaning cloths and four children will be occupied for quite a while. Anything will be an improvement over what it looks like now. We also bought some annuals yesterday....better late than never....and we are going to plant them in the little flower bed out by the road where our sign hangs. Up and down the road, other campers have planted their flowers. We have a beautiful bed of flowers in front of the camp...lit at night by landscape lights...but few fresh flowers out back. Wait a minute....what's that I hear? "Nannie, can we have breakfast?" The other two are up....be right back.

This time around it was a bit more complicated. "The Eater" (my grandson) wanted a cheese omelet with cinnamon toast and the oldest granddaughter wanted a bowl of cereal with cinnamon toast. Again, I tried the "what kind of juice" trick. Reluctantly, Josh picked orange. Hayley went with milk. Well, three out of four ain't bad!!! The little girls threw on some clothes and they've gone for a bike ride. There isn't anything cuter than those two little dolls pedaling up the camp road on their sweet "little girlie" bikes....helmets on their little heads. And....the little ones pedaling off....the older "grands" have turned the channel to Country Music Videos.

You're asking yourself, "What is she talking about, CMT?" Yes folks, we are in the lap of luxury out here....satellite television included. There isn't any way my husband would enjoy the summer if he didn't have NESN. He works until 8:00 p.m. each weeknight. When he comes home, he turns on the Red Sox and we have a late dinner. It's been a challenge finding things that I can cook for a crowd, but I've managed. They all love my orange/pineapple cottage cheese salad. Everyone loves chop

suey and monkey bread. As luck would have it, my "grands" will try about anything that I make, as long as everyone is willing to give it a chance. So....we even tried scalloped potato with kielbasa and onions the other night. They have learned to drink out of stem ware, and argue about who is going to give the first toast. "Here's to cousins at camp!"

Yes indeed, this week has been a dream come true for me....one I've looked forward to for a long long time.....even if I have had to sit in a lawn chair on the lake's edge for most of the week...one eye on the kids....the other eye on my book...life's tough. Oops, the bikers are back. "Nannie, can we go swimming?" I'll be right back....

.The swim involved going to the neighbor's float for an extended period of time. It was nice to visit with them and their little granddaughter. How times have changed....and yet nothing has changed. Kids still love dive-bombing each other off of Carey's float. It's just a different generation. Once, my kids were out on that float and I called them to come in for supper. Well, easier said than done. They had spied a huge bass swimming around the float. Neither one of them would jump off into the water. My husband had to commandeer the neighbors canoe and paddle out to the float to rescue them from the bass that they were sure was going to nibble on them all the way back to shore if they jumped into the water.

Of course they were starving after their swim, so I made a luncheon of Bugles and ranch dip, sliced up watermelon, and their favorite...banana cake. It's so good to be at camp and be able to throw all semblance of normalcy to the wind. Eat what, and as much, as you want...what's another $100 worth of groceries! I've been to the store three times since last Friday....and....oh, who's counting! We're having a great time.

Here's a repeat of my Mammie Horne's Ripe Banana Cake - that's right....no egg.

1 cup sugar
1/2 cup shortening
1 cup mashed bananas (I use three ripe)
1-1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. nutmeg
dash cloves
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 cup hot water with 1 tsp. soda dissolved and added the last thing

Cream sugar and shortening. Add mashed bananas, then flour, spices, etc. Lastly add the soda dissolved in the hot water. Put in a greased loaf pan, sprinkle with white sugar (enough so it will make a nice crusty top) and bake 350 degrees for 1 hour.

The following is the philosophy of Charles Schultz, the creator of the "Peanuts" comic strip. You don't have to actually answer the questions. Just read the article straight through and you'll get the point.

1. Name the five wealthiest people in the world.
2. Name the last five Heisman trophy winners.
3. Name the last five winners of the Miss America contest..
4. Name ten people who have won the Nobel or Pulitzer Prize.
5. Name the last half dozen Academy Award winners for best actor and actress.
6. Name the last decade's worth of World Series winners.
How did you do?

The point is none of us remember the headliners of yesterday. These are no second-rate achievers. They are the best in their fields. But the applause dies. Awards tarnish. Achievements are forgotten. Accolades and certificates are buried with their owners.

Here's another quiz. See how you do on this one:

1. List a few teachers who aided your journey through school.
2. Name three friends who have helped you through a difficult time.
3. Name five people who have taught you something worthwhile.
4. Think of a few people who have made you feel appreciated and special.
5. Think of five people you enjoy spending time with.
Easier?
The lesson: The people who make a difference in your life are not the ones with the most credentials, the most money, or the most awards.
They are the ones that care.
. "Don't worry about the world coming to an end today. It's already tomorrow in Australia."
(Charles Schultz)
