    Foley and Jarbo just wanted to prove all you doubters wrong.

    But someone should tell Marty, shortstops don’t make the pivot, only second basemen.

    through his alcoholic fog I’m surprised Marty could even get that out

    is that Marty’s “Revenge of the Sith” look?

    Marty’s mic is actually a tater tot from the cafeteria, courtesy of his girlfriend, Lunch Lady Doris.

    The 1st baseman is doing an improper stretch. Bad coaching on Gil’s part.

    The field umpire is in poor position. With multiple runners, he should be behind the mound either side of second base.

    Does any other high school in the country keep track of double play totals by a SS and 2B combination? I doubt it.
    Milford probably counts the times a batter is hit by a pitch with a runner on third and two out.

    I bet Mimi is already shopping for new patio furniture and a new two-piece with all of that bonus money Gil will get for making the playdowns.

    Actually, in a 4-6-3 DP, they do, just not as much of a pivot as a second baseman would have to make. A shortstop just makes a slight turn, while a second baseman would have his back to first base, and would therefore have to turn around 180 degrees.

    The lawsuit will provide a significant enough distraction that the playdowns will prove to be a disaster. Stupid Goshen will probably win it all.

    How many high schools have full time media following around a single high school team… let alone two a couple years ago when Paul Strange monitored the second radio station. Any way you slice it, Milford is special. I’m sure they also have a successful annual draft and salary negotiations with Freshmen as well.

    Yep, first baseman stretching with the wrong leg again, this was pointed out at the beginning of the season. Or last season, whatever, I don’t have the motivation to go search for it. Okay, missed predicting the end of this game, but I still feel one of them will blow their chance at the record, I guess in the last game of the year which will lead to a lot of drama and somehow affect the lawsuit.

    And again, the umpire is in a ridiculous position. Unless it’s the home plate ump running out towards first, the second ump does not position himself near the pitcher! And I don’t think it’s the home plate ump, there is no mask and no apparent chest protection.
