|One of the few swings Chester could muster in the 3rd inning|
I had to see them for myself and it’s true that Chester High School baseball is as bad as Chester High School basketball is good.
At today’s contest at the A-field, the game was tied after the first inning 1-1.
In the top of the 2nd, Chichester batted around twice, had 7 hits before the first out, was walked 4 times, hit by a pitch, got on base with 2 errors, and throw in a balk, while each of Chester’s outfielders got horrible jumps on balls that should have been caught.
15 runs and a couple hits later, the 2nd inning finally ended.
Chi’s starting pitcher, Demetrius Muse struck out the side in the bottom of the 2nd and the Chi coaches cleared their bench in the top of the 3rd.
Chi’s new pitcher struck out the sides in the bottom of the 3rd with Chester batters just watching the ball go by with maybe 2 swings between the 3 batters and the game ended at the end of the 3rd due to the mercy rule.
To all my old school Chester High baseballers: Joe Kane, Warren Moore, Dennis Jackson, Jessie Butler, Marvin Maness, Jeff Williams, Tom & John Michaels, Gordon & Anthony Potter, Calvin & Alex Butcher and the others...what a far cry from the days of old.
