During a pair of league games Tuesday night in Jefferson City, JCBI took on the Steelers followed by the Jackhammers, winning both games 13-3. The boys were playing pretty well up until Coach Schreimann mentioned how well the boys were playing. And at that moment things went south, like someone threw a switch, literally the next pitch, the boys made several back to back errors. It made for a tense few moments –never, NEVER tempt the baseball gods! Anyway, the boys recovered and managed to get out of the game, only giving up a few runs.
Now if someone could just turn up the thermostat –baseball just isn’t baseball at 40 degrees and it’s May cryin’ out loud!
