The Marauders opened the 2012 season against the St. Lucie Mets, at home, at McKechnie field in front of an announced 4,200+ crowd.
Starting at the mound for the 'Rauders was #48 Colton Cain.

Image

Colton was on fire to start the game. Throwing strike after strike. I don't think St. Lucie knew what hit him.
Both teams scored a single run in the 2nd and 3rd innings to end regulation 2-2 and we move to the 10th inning. No scoring so we head to the 11th.

The Marauders managed to get a runner, #5 Gift Ngoyte, on base and was able to steal 2nd.
The Mets pitcher was frustrated with his game and after fighting the next batter, ended up walking him on purpose.
The next batter was intentionally walked to get to # 16, Stefan Welch. He had been struggling a bit all night. The Mets pitcher hit the batter, and sent the winning run, walking to home plate! M's win 3-2

Image

Next game is Friday 4/6 @ 6:30pm again, home against the Mets.

Oh man - this guy is AMAZING! He can hit and field like crazy.
Seriously, I would not be surprised if he moves up FAST - I hope get him for the year, but I doubt it.

On a personal note, what a nice guy he is. (see picture below signing my wife's bat at the meet and greet a few days back!)

You bet! Love doing it. As long as you regulars don't mind.
I'll post a thread after each game with summary and images.

Just an FYI for you. After a couple days, we take all the game reports and move them to the other forum. That way they can be easily found when people are looking back for them. Just didn't want you to think we deleted them.

Good to know they are 'archived'.
Thanks, I would have thought it was something on my end - losing my mind! LOL
