WEDNESDAY: Middletown Post 75 boys alive and kicking
Middletown Post 75 was one out from a season-ending loss against Southington, but they came back. Tuesday, the boys clobbered Bristol at Palmer Field in the American Legion State Tournament. Now, they'll take on Stamford (who they lost two in the second game of the tourney) in a do-or-die game, and look to continue their Legion story.
Really great baseball from the Middletown boys. Get the latest recap from Jim Bransfield here.
They'll play at Muzzy Field at 6:30 p.m. tonight, battling a tough Stamford team. Stamford, though, actually lost to Norwalk after giving up an 8-0 (!?!?!?) lead. Ouch. It was their first loss in this double-elimination tourney.
Be sure to follow @jdpelletier for the latest updates on the boys in blue.
OH, and while you're here, a stupendous rugby catch:
