Stealing a win

It’s good to be back from vacation. I’m only half-joking when I say that

after running around like a madman with diapers and burp rags after the

birth of our second child a couple weeks ago. In reality, my “vacation”

consisted of deliriously bouncing back and forth between a pair of rugrats

under three. Although, I can’t complain — my wife has it much tougher.

Anyways, today I get this fax concerning what has to be the early season

baseball game of the year. I can almost feel the frustration in Huntley coach Andy Jakubowski’s game account. It reads: Game was stopped in the bottom of the sixth due to darkness and the bases loaded with Huntley at bat with no one out and two runs in. Final score: Barrington 13, Huntley 12. Are you kidding me? It better have been 8:30 p.m. and pitch black outside for the umpires to call this one under these circumstances. I would’ve loved to have heard the reaction when it was called with Huntley on

the verge of taking the lead and blowing the game open. Unbelievable. I would have suggested they continue the contest today, but once again there’s a blizzard trashing the spring schedule. The amazing thing about this game is that Huntley was down 11-0 after four innings before posting a 10-spot in the bottom of the fifth. I’m sure the Broncos snuck out like they stole something, because they did…a win.
