    That 6-4-3 will do it everytime for you. Good call Gil. Keep it up.

    Assuming that white circle is supposed to be the ball, the future lawyer at 2nd appears to have flipped it off casually in the direction of the pitcher.

    Even if he did, he would blame weak link Scott Fowler at first base. The cog at second doesn’t make mistakes.

    I’ve shot lots of photos of second base during a double play and it looks a lot like this, but you’re right about the ball. It looks too small at the least.

    The ball looks so small because, due to Gil’s impressive coaching, Bobby is now throwing B-B’s to the Leesville hitters. First Milford no-hitter in 75 years.

    Gil’s wisdom has grown ever since he started slumping like Yoda (P1)

    Are you saying Gilmeister is distantly related to the Hunchback of ND? Best advice Gil has shared this academic year. Next week…Amanda and Darby play pitch and catch. Mimi and Pedro ditto.

    Gil’s back! And his coaching is better than ever. I’m starting to feel like a run to state is in the cards for later this season.

    Gil must be only baseball coach in America who doesn’t wear a cap.

    Yeah, Gil is back. Actually coaching! I’d love to see a story line where Gil actually coaches all season and the story focuses on the games, not some madcap weird adventure. A big run through the playdowns is in order, too. Yeah, MHS can’t win the state title every year, but it’s been too long since we’ve seen the Larks heading for the final four in Central City and staying over at Motel 7. I want me some playdowns!!

    Not only is he not wearing a cap, it looks like he’s wearing jeans. Most HS coaches wear uniforms. C’mon Gil…this isn’t Little League!

    Welcome back Gil!

    No peacocks. No lawyers. From “One out…” to “…double play”, today is just baseball. A little ray of sunshine for us Thorp fans.

    Managers traditionally wear uniforms in keeping with the early roster limitations when there were true hyphenates, player-managers. Lou Boudreau was, I believe the last player manager, although I recall Pete Rose having two job descriptions. Connie Mack was an owner-manager, so he wore a three piece suit in the dugout.
