One might question, "How much was ever really in the tank"

No, they might not.  Keep your inidivdual slams to your myspace account, norfrank.
I wasn't quite sure how the comment was being framed, but if it's being directed to Viking Blue, I can tell you that he had quite a bit of gas in the tank during his four years on the mound.  He holds the career record for games pitched;  fourth in games started; is tied for 7th all-time in wins; third in innings pitched; and ninth in career strikeouts.  And as Casey Stengel once said, "You kin look it up" (on my website) if you need further evidence.
What a great website - and act of love - thanks for doing this.

Thanks for the kind words.  It took a lot of work to get it set up, but it's my small contribution to the legacy of North Park baseball.

well I don't know about the "great guy" bit - all right guy maybe....   ;D
I am determined to be wise, but this was beyond me.

Carthage down 3-0 to Concordia after 2 innings.

Pucher is pitching for Carthage today, but he's had his share of walks and wild pitches early.

Carthage wins 9-7, but may have lost leading hitter Mike Petti to a broken forearm when he dove for a ball in right.

Anyone have any word on Petti ? Not a good time to have your MVP go down.

DAMMIT!!!! Hope it is a quick heal and he can be back for the regional. Time for Hodges to put the team on  his back and carry them to a CCIW title.

Any updates on Petti?

The game summary from yesterday has been updated.   Grammatically incorrect as it is, the news is not good for the Red Men.

 "Carthage rightfielder Mike Petti (Sr., Mundelein, Ill.) was broke his arm diving for the ball and will miss the rest of the season Petti leads the Red Men with a .418 batting average."

OMG, IWU lost (at home! :o) to Rockford today.

So much for a pool C - win or go home.

As of today they are still second in the Central Region...if the Elmhurst loses didn't push them off the Pool C charts, I don't think this will either....


CENTRAL         
1   Coe                   22-9   24-10
2   Illinois Wesleyan   20-9   22-12
3   Buena Vista       19-11   20-13
4   Carthage           16-5   23-8
5   Augustana (Ill.)   14-11   21-11
6   Washington-St. Louis   28-15   29-17

Carthage up 19-0 on Lakeland as Carthage hits in the bottom of the 4th.  Every Carthage starter has at least 1 hit so far (7 starters have 2 or more) and at least 1 RBI.  

Of Carthage's 24 hits, 13 are for extra bases (11 2b, 1 3b, and 1 HR).  The HR came from Petti's replacement in RF, C D'Angelo.
