Backstop/Net News

As of 12:15, mere moments ago, there are men and equipment on the field.  Old backstop/net still up in all its glory.  Hopefully a different by the end of the day.  

 

After five days atop the North standings the AppleSox slipped back to second their loss last night and Walla Walla’s 11-2 win over Victoria.  

 

July 10 Games

Not many games on 7/10, only seven, and the results not so hot.  Wenatchee is 4-3 overall, 3-3 in league games, 1-1 on the road and has a 1-game losing streak.  They are 0-2 vs. Corvallis...a 8-5 loss a year ago in Oregon, and 4-2 setback in 2009 at home.  

 

More Players in Recent Times

The first nine years Wenatchee averaged 28.2 total players per season.  In the five years, beginning in 2009, that average has gone up 5½ players to 33.8.  This season 35 young men have seen action so far.
