Captain's Corner Article of the Week - See others at the Link on the Left
Apr 2, 2015, 9:48 pm


The Iron Pigs showed up sleep deprived and ready for battle.  Mr. Jeremy Pigott( team e-mail antagonist) was MIA in NOLA with pre-celebratory drinks all weekend, however, the Pigs marched on. 

Badger got things going with a single.  With a run already plated and a man on 3rd, Rookie sensation Mr. Chapman hits a shot  causing an error and plated another Pigs run.

Welcome to the top of the 2nd which found hitters 8-12 going 2-3 with 2 BB's helping spark a 7 run inning capped off by another Rookie senastion, Mr. Brumley's base clearing triple.  Big thanks to the true team unity of this club as everyone tries to find a way to contribute no matter where they play or bat in the line-up.

With the momentum on the Pigs side, the under-manned (unfortunate result of a 5 am email) Grasshoppers couldnt really get too much going aside from the bomb into the wind by Aaron Weintraub which burned captain Ryan Alford for a double and left the Captain's jock torched on the field.

Solid D in the infield and Solid D by the corner outfielders and RCF, along side of pitching Rookie Phenom Craig "Ace" Dyer, proved to be the key to victory in this early morning Sunday rubber match.   


GAME 2 -  TIGERS - 11  VS.  IRON PIGS - 14

With an hour delay, the Pigs found themselves cheering and rooting on the other players, especially the former Pigs themselves, for a show brotherhood and league camaraderie.

"Sub Sensation" Greg Winn put on a display on how to stretch and a few of us almost pulled a groin just watching the yoga master at work.  He put his stretching skills to good use as the Tigers peppered right field all through the game.  Although Mr Winn missed a few, he never got down and made solid plays that helped lead this Iron Pigs team to victory.  Thank you" Mr. Sub Sensation."

Badger once again sets the table as he doubles to start the game, and followed by three more hits and a costly Tigers error the Piggies were up 4-0 going into the field. 

This was a classic battle back and forth and with the Pigs up 6-1, but the never say die Tigers come roaring back by the 4th inning to find themselves with the lead 9-6. 

Once again, I cannot stress enough the Unity of this group of Iron Pigs.  Squandering the lead, no one got down and everyone looked for ways to contribute, ie; batting, defense, running bases, or overall good vibes.

Badger started the bottom of the 5th inning which sparked an offensive montage of hit after hit.  This inning saw 15 batters, 9 hits, 1 BB, and plated 8 and a lead of 14-9.

 Mr. Chapman saved the Pigs 'bacon' as he made an incredibly ridiculous catch in RCF to get the last out with runners on and the Tigers gaining momentum. 

This was a great battle of two teams ended with the Pigs on top, however, The Pigs know they were fortunate to escape the Tigers with a win.






Sid Finch Memorial Article of the Week
Apr 1, 2015, 9:08 pm

After two weeks of practice games mixed in with three weeks of bad weather, the Shalom League teams are itching to start regular season play.  In a bold switch from prior practice, Commisioner Wayne Casper told no one that the first four games would not count.  "I told nobody, not [his son and Storm captain] Kyle [Casper], not [Tigers captain Brian] Conn, not Logan, no one. Not even myself."  Seadogs star and self-described league b**** Justin Reed did not express surprise.  "Wayne never tells me anything, unless he needs something fixed."  Lead Seadog John Hauf exclaimed "I massaged the sub list for 168 hours without sleep and the games don't count?!"

Bats Captain John Unell, lamenting the injury of MVP Mike Baker, asked if Wayne would also declare the draft a practice and start that over.  "We could have two greatest days of the year," he said wistfully.  "I could skip Baker and grab more Epsteins - Barry, Judah, Jason, Zach, the other Barry ..."  

Ryan Alford, the leader of the Iron Pigs, did not seem fazed by the news that his league-leading 4-0 start was a mirage, noting "Fellas, we whupped you in practice, we'll whup you in games, we'll whup you in playoffs.  Who wants a drink on me?"

Vice-Commissioner Larry Farin seemed most confused.  "I keep Wu right?  He won't make an out all year.  I'd let Shaw be the Yankees before I give up Wu.  I could be the G-men."

Larry Goldstein, possibly the smartest captain in the league, ranted for some length:  I mean … simple as that. It ain't about that... I mean it's... It's not about that... At all. You know what I'm saying I mean... But it's...it's easy … to, to talk about... It's easy to sum it up when you're just talking about practice. We're sitting in here, and I'm supposed to be the franchise player, and we in here talking about practice. I mean, listen, we're talking about practice, not a game, not a game, not a game, we talking about practice. Not a game. Not, not … Not the game that I go out there and die for and play every game like it's my last. Not the game, but we're talking about practice, man. I mean, how silly is that? … And we talking about practice. I know I supposed to be there. I know I'm supposed to lead by example... I know that... And I'm not.. I'm not shoving it aside, you know, like it don't mean anything. I know it's important, I do. I honestly do... But we're talking about practice man. What are we talking about? Practice? We're talking about practice, man. [laughter from the media crowd] We're talking about practice. We're talking about practice. We ain't talking about the game. [more laughter] We're talking about practice, man. When you come to the Heritage Fields, and you see me play, you see me play don't you? You've seen me give everything I've got, right? But we're talking about practice right now. We talking about pr... [Interrupted].

When asked if he appeciated a fresh start for his 0-4 team, crazyab Garber could only cry.  "I create a schedule of beauty, perfectly symmetrical, and then he [Casper] rips it to shreds, with his practice games, his tripleheaders, inside fields one week, outside fields the next.  I was mostly sane Ab before I met that guy."

John Miller said he was not worried about Sundays right now.  "I need a player for today, Wednesday April 1, April Fools, you know."
