Northern Report on All Star Classic

September 26, 2010

Sudbury, ON


   Rick McDonald Boys Win The All Star Game
 
                                     There was no change in the weather as its been for almost three weeks now . Here in the small community of Massey on the North Shore , it was a cloudy and somewhat cold with the temperature hardly reaching 7 degrees Celsius . We even had some light showers throughout the game . The Rick McDonald Fastball League scored 2 in the opening frame coupled with another four in the second in taking a commanding 6-0 lead and seemed well on their way to an easy victory . In the middle innings , the North Shore crew score 4 but the McDonald boys hold on for a close 6-4 victory .John Ainslie started for the McDonald crew and picked up the victory  and later gave way to Eric Abitong .Both pitchers combines to give up 4 runs (all earned) on 8 hits while striking out 2 batters and not issuing a single base on balls . Casey Abitong went all the way for the North Shore giving up all six runs (all earned) on 7 hits while striking out 5 batters and  not issuing a single base on balls . Heikel Esponsa of the North Shore led all hitters going a perfect 4 for 4 at the dish with Brian Esson hitting 2 for 4 .Dwight Beers and John Ainslie led the hitting parade for the winners both hitting 2 for 4 while teammate Mike Cain went 2 for 5 (both triples) . The 2011 game returns to Greater Sudbury and will be played at either Terrry Fox or Coniston . In 2012 the game will be held in Spanish on the North Shore.
 
Yours in fastball ,
 
           Keep fit! See you on the fastball diamonds in 2011
