MACKINAW DEE-MACK RECOGNIZED BY BASEBALL OFFICIAL
September 14, 2017 - Submitted by Baseball Official Llew Smith

Several times this season I have had the pleasure to umpire games for the Dee-Mack junior high baseball team. On a couple of these occasions the games were very lopsided in favor of Dee-Mack. A lot of times in these circumstances teams start to take advantage of the situation. That has never been the case with Dee-Mack. Both players and coaching staff are always respectful to their opponent and never try to "pile it on." I have seen the coaches deliberately instruct their players to not take advantage of a lower-skilled opponent. In the "win at all costs" mentality that sometimes happens in sprots, this is refreshing and I really appreciate the manner in which this team conducts themselves.

PERU PARKSIDE BASEBALL APPLAUDED BY WENONA FIELDCREST BASEBALL COACH
August 31, 2017 - Submitted by Wenona Fieldcrest Coach Mark Brown

I am a firm believer in pitch count and we chart them very carefully. We made a mistake in our dugout pitch count which I take full responsibility for. However, before we let our pitcher make too many pitches, [Peru] Parkside's assistant coach called a timeout to check on pitch count. He did not have to do this and had our pitcher thrown to another batter, we would have broken the rule. Many coaches would have allowed the error to occur and then tried to "catch us" breaking the rule. It was [an] honest mistake on our part, but his sportsmanship allowed us the chance to correct the mistake before it happened. I truly appreciate his act of sportsmanship in alerting us.
