Old Fashioned base ball season wraps up

It was a "corker"

Thanks to our fans who made the trip to Grayslake Saturday. Unfortunately, McHenry County "Independants" lost a close match, 3-1, during a spirited affair at Central Park. The game became a hurlers' dual. Southpaw Greg Hatrumian kept our Club Nine in the mix until the very end of the six-inning tilt. (Balloon launching took precedent). Hats off to the Athletics of Grayslake for the usual fun event, which featured several players pulled from the audience's ranks. Thanks to Sue Skowronski, pictures from the game can be found at:
