Week 8 Game of the Week

Niswonger’s Lugnuts @ Alford’s Iron Pigs

8:30 PM Field 2


This week’s Game of the Week features the Handsome Captain’s division leader Lugnuts (12-4) paying visit to the streaking Iron Pigs (11-4). The Pigs have won their last 6 games in a row, but that was over a month ago. Weather has not been kind to the shalomers this season and it may take some of the players a bit to get back into the groove. Nevertheless, this should be a great matchup between the brutes of the Nuts and the savvy pitching and defense of the Pigs. Captain Niswonger, usually a bit boisterous about his team’s chances, elected to only offer a one liner.

“Pray for us.” 


Prayers should first be offered to Mother Nature as rain is once again in the forecast for Sunday evening. However, if the Nuts bring the bats they are accustomed to, they should give the Pigs all they can handle. When asked about the matchup and his squad, Ryan Alford has this to offer:

The Piggies are very humbled (Ticket reference) to be nominated for the GOW as we are set to play a very complete team Sunday in the Division leading Lugnuts.

Skipper Niswonger has led a team with his exuberance, energy and softball IQ, These unique tools, not to mention his great talent, has helped him push his team to a 12-4 record thus far. Tommy Two Guns, Nutts 1 and 2, Carver and Wolff seem to help control the dugout as savvy veterans that can flat out play the game. Additions of a handful of rookies such as Duron, Rodriguez, Villareal, and Bailey have fit in nicely and appear to be gems of the draft, quite frankly pure gold in some cases. Anthony and Wang round out the team and those boys would be a great additions to any team on Sunday. The more I type, the more I realize what a feat it will take to beat this group of men, but the Piggies will give all we have to try and make a game of it.

The IRONPIGS have been rocking and rolling with defense all year long, and that is led by Banta on the bump. Rookie sensations Blake Miller and Dalton Underwood have been defensive juggernauts, while Shalom league mainstays Dr. Gadol and Jamie Aron have been well worth the draft pick contributing every Sunday it seems with key AB’s or defensive plays. Kyle Kahn has been rock solid and Chris Coffman is slim and trim and ready to win dropping lbs all season for a post season push. Dustin Bone is nails in the OF and a beast at the plate. Derek Muck has had a great return season playing 3 different positions all while gutting out a leg injury. Piggy vets Sean Brinkman and Brandon Alford have helped cultivate the culture of the team, and have not disappointed between the lines.


The Pigs/Lugnuts matchup should be a fun one, and I am sure brotherhood will be on display while both teams compete and leave it all on the field.”
