Today was the home opener at glorious Sicks Stadium. Less than 15,000 showed up. Wonder if they know something we don't know ? I guess any city that values its museums more than it's ball team can't be all that bad ? Ding Dong Gary Bell started for us and got torched for 6 runs in a little over 8 innings of work. Ding Dong...I think you all know how he got that nick name ? If you don't, cups are made out of metal and when a ball hits it it makes a sound like "Ding Dong". Nuff said ?
Bell did well in 7 of the 8 innings he pitched. The 4 run 6th inning was his undoing. Schultz let him stay on the mound to "work through" it. I wonder who the real Ding Dong is ?
