Scarlets Back to Winning
The Casper Cardinals came up to Billings on Sunday to play the Billings Scarlets. The first game was mercifully called in the top of the 5th, the score was probably 31-3. No, they were not playing football, and only the Scarlets were playing Legion baseball as the Cardinals are, according to their web page, the Senior Babe Ruth team from that area. I wondered why some of the players looked very young and why the outfielders seemed unfamiliar with their positions. This was not a pleasant thing. The pitchers were wild and needed some work in the strength room. I doubt that anyone got anything useful out of this double-header. We left the 2nd game after the first inning. I would be very surprised if it went beyond 5 innings.
