A Good Evening for Billings
The Mustangs out-of-town hitting and pitching and fielding were enough to subdue the Voyagers 7-5 up there in Great Fall, and either the Billings Scarlets or the Billings Royals would win here in Billings at Dehler Park on the eve of Independence Day. Has to be a good deal for those who like to watch Legion baseball. By the way, the new radio broadcaster Joe Bloch is really easy to listen to and he calls a very good game. I listened off and on to him on Friday night when the Brewers were here in Billings.
On the very next pitch Max Tolstedt hit a screamer at Blake Loran, the first baseman, which bounced high over his head to score the winning run. I thought Coach Hust was having an epileptic seizure during these last two pitches. Very exciting baseball.
Interestingly enough, the Scarlets only graduate two players from their squad this year which should be bad news for their opponents next year.
