Finding two Good Samaritans While playing in a Regional Fitness Center basketball game last week, my son, Alex, re-injured his back. While I am running around like a crazy person, trying to find ice, a woman from the Minnewaska sideline rushed to Alex and gave him quick and precise medical attention. I have no idea who the woman was, but if anyone knows her, please tell her thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Her willingness to help reminded me that people are indeed good.

The Morris Babe Ruth League Red team won twice by 10-run margins to improve to its record to 4-0. Here's a recap of the league's second week results: Gray 9, Black 3 A five--run third inning helped Gray pull away from Black. Gray's Jeremy Westerman, Derrick Foss and Matt Fellows all had two hits, and Nate Kleindl, Drew Schmidgall, Brendon Foss, Tyler Hansen, Nate Gibson, Jon Jallo, and Eric Wulf also had hits. Derrick Foss pitched the first four innings to get the win, giving a run on two hits with no walks and four strikeouts.
The Morris 13-U baseball team needed eight innings to maintain its unblemished record. Brady Valnes' bases-loaded single in the eighth inning drove in the winning run and Morris tacked on five more in a 20-14 win over Melrose on Tuesday. Morris needed two runs in the top of the seventh inning to force extra innings. Morris is 10-0 and is host to the Morris Baseball Association State Qualifying Tournament June 24-25 in Morris.
It was past the midway point in June and the NHL and NBA were still playing. Why are their respective seasons so long? I guess the leagues and the owners think they can make more money with a longer season. You have to wonder though, because the league with the shortest season, the NFL, makes by far the most money. Every game means so much in the NFL because of the shorter season. That is one reason why so many people are rabid NFL fans. You also do not see a best-of-seven playoff in the NFL. It is do or die each game.
The Morris VFW team won its first game of the season, 7-3, over Benson Tuesday in Morris. Morris pitcher Luke Claassen allowed all three runs in the first inning, but Morris rebounded with a run in the second, four runs in the third and single runs in the fifth and sixth. After the shaky start, Claassen shored up his game nicely, working all seven innings, allowing three runs on six hits. He walked five and struck out 10. "He had a rocky first inning, but then he got into a pretty good run and settled in pretty good," said VFW coach T.J.
The Morris Legion baseball team again produced big offensively and improved to 2-0 with a win over West Central on Thursday in Barrett. The Legion had 15 hits and took advantage of seven West Central errors in a 16-4 win. Three Morris players had multiple hits and all nine starters hit safely. "We had a solid offensive performance," said Legion coach Brock Paschen. "Everybody reached base at least once." The teams were tied 4-4 after three innings, but Morris' five-run fourth sealed the game. Morris starter Brett Anderson didn't allow an earned run in his four innings of work.
