    Foley’s a f-up in court and on the field. Gonna be a very nice day for him indeed.

    Perhaps Jarbo, et al, can sue for mental anquish when he looses them the game.

    . . . or whatever it is that they’re doing.

    I’m guessing that Foley was throwing to Jarbo at second base to start the record-tying (or setting) double play. In that case, the Tilden runner might be the first player in baseball history to try to break up a double play with a headfirst slide.

    I wish my high school baseball field had bullet-proof plexiglas fences surrounding it when I played like Milford does.

    I can’t let it go. Too many times have I seen “lose” or loses misspelled. There is only one “O”. Yes, “looses” is a word but it has an entirely different meaning. I apologize for loosing this rant upon you, but this thing has been getting on my last nerve.

    Yeah, I called it too. Although my prediction was the botched double play would cost them the title. We’ll see.
    Too bad P4 was censored. It’s a shot of Jarbo rolling on the ground in agony after the Tilden runner’s head nailed him in the crotch.

    Mop, I’m guessing it will cost them, unless Jarbo bails them out of this jam with an unassisted triple play once they walk the bases loaded on order from Gil. Foley had predicted they had a shot at the DP record before the season even started. I always wanted to set the record for most assists on ground balls to my left with less than 2 outs. In wrestling it was most beads of sweat in conference matches, but the upper weight classes had the edge on me…

    MHS is wearing white, so they must be playing in the friendly confines of Mudlark Field. As Wildcat watches with a jigger of bourbon high atop Maris Industries beyond right field, Gil must draw on his 55 years of coaching experience to lead The ’Larks to a Valley title. Marty simply draws another sip and studies the daily double and trifecta choices at Milford Downs.

    Once again Gil Thorp is missing, and not managing the game.
    This strip always finds a way for the Mudlarks to lose because of the players when the real problem is Gil.

    Now really, was there any of us who didn’t see this coming two weeks ago? Now ESPN will have to cancel their 60 minute program on the only high school baseball team in the nation that keeps track of double plays by tandems.

    Can’t tell you how many Your Invited I have seen. Drives me nuts when they come from the kids’ schools. Sorry to turn this into an English class.

    Have you seen the colorized version of today’s strip? Milford is decked out in head to feet dark orange with white shoes.

    Ben Revere CF Phillies slid head first into 2nd last week. Runner ruled safe at first due to Ben’s interference (even though he did not touch the fielder! Phillies stink.
