Bucs Lose Again, Jr Bucs Win Again

Well it was not a good for the Bucs again as we fell to Glenn Allen Post 244 8-1 at the old Matoaca High School, Shepherd was a little to wet today. It just wasn't a good game for us as we fell behind again early in the game and the bats for the most part were pretty quiet again. It seemed every time we got a runner on base we would hit into a double play. We have to come out of this slump soon, it's not a whole lot of fun losing all the time. The Jr Bucs got another victory today knocking off Stuarts Draft Post 13 9-6 at VSU. Brett Draper pitched a complete game in the victory and had 8k's in the game. The Jr Bucs next game is tuesday a VSU at 7pm. MICKEY

The Post 284 Bucs lost another tough one tonight losing 3-2 to Battlefield Post 144 at Shepherd Stadium. If it wasn't for bad luck it appears we wouldn't have any luck at all.

It looks like it is going to be nice day here in CH, temps are suppose to be in the low 90's. It's going to be warmer here in CH than it's going to be in Knoxville, GA something is wrong with that picture. I went down to Wal-Mart around 6:15 this morning and for the second week in a row they didn't have any donuts ready, it looks like I am going to have to find somewhere else to go if the can't get them ready on time. Both Post 284 Sr teams are playing at the stadium today with Pirates playing at 5:30pm against Glenn Allen Post 244, and then the Bucs playing at 8pm against Battlefield Post 144.

Rocky Racoon Returns To The Beach

I understand theat Rocky Racoon has returned to the beach house. I guess he has ran out of food in the woods and has returned to the house to look for cat food and anything else he can find there. Rocky, startled Glenn last night on the front porch or shall I say Glenn statrled Rocky, Glenn went back in the house and Rocky ran up on the roof and wouldn't come down, you decide who startled who. Not to much happening here in CH yesterday, today our baseball team travels down the road to Powhatan to play Post 201 at 7:30pm, the Buc hopefully will get back on track tonight, the Bucs are now 3-4 on the season.

The Bucs lost another tough one tonight losing to South Richmond Post 137 6-4 at Shepherd Stadium. The Bucs were leading 4-3 entering the 6th inning and fave up three in the top of the 6th and that was all the scoring for the night. It was a pretty intense game there was a alot of trash talking between the teams, there were a couple of arguements, and the umpire had to warn both teams about what was going on. Things were amost at a boiling point at the end of the game, it's a good thing we don't play them for a while. Also tonight the Jr Bucs won again defeating South Hill 12-3, the Jr Bucs will play again saturday at VSU. The Jr Bucs still have not lost a game. MICKEY

Bucs Fall To Midlo

The Post 284 Bucs fell to Midlo Post 186 tonight 12-3 at Rockwood Park. The Bucs just didn't seem to get many breaks tonight, Midlo had about 5 or 6 bloop singles, and every ground ball found it's way thru the infield. Midlo has a good team but the score should have been closer that in it was. The Bucs are now 2-2, the Pirates Post284 other team fell to Hopewell 9-2. It doesn't get any easier saturday as the Bucs travel to Mechanicsville Post 175 for a 7:30pm matchup at Lee Davis High School. MICKEY

Getting ready to play Put Put

Wednesday, June 15, 2005


Well I went back to court this morning and after I had been in the courtroom for about 2 minutes the judge told me he didn't think there was any reason for being there today. He said the case that I was involved with the suspect had already been found guilty and he just thanked me for coming and said I was no longer needed. That was all I needed to hear and I was out the door. MICKEY

Back To Court

Well I have to go back to court again today in Richmond this morning, hopefully this will be the end of it. The next time I see something like this taking place I don't know if I want to report it. It seems because this individual is under 18 that they really don't want to do much about it, he already has a pretty big record and he is only 14. We will just have to see what happens. MICKEY

Stuck In The Heat

It appears that CH is stuck in the heat and humidity for a few more days. Although the temp didn't make into th 90's today the humidity made up for it. There were allot of t-storms around today but for the most part CH missed most of them, there were a few showers nothing major here. We also have our first tropical system of the year in TS Arlene which suppose to hit in the AL and MS border area this weekend, "be on the lookout down there Scott and Joy" before heading north into the WVA are by tuesday or wed. This system is suppose to be Tropical Storm at landfall, hopefully it will stay west of the area. MICKEY

Andrew's Team Wins

Andrew's team won again last night 11-9 over the Phillies in little league action at Ironbridge Park. The game went 6 inings and Andrew hit a HR in the game. There next game is saturday at noon against a yet to be determined team. We had 284 practice again last night and it was quite humid, I think I dropped a few pounds throwing batting practice but we were able to get it in, it was lightning all around us but we didn't get any rain. We have practice again tonight and it's still going to be pretty warm and there could be a t-storm or two. MICKEY

Another Hot One

It looks like it is going to be another hot one today, it 73.5 at 6:30am on it's way to the low 90's. Andrew has a liitle league playoff game tonight at 6pm against the Phillies. We have 284 for practice also tonight at the same time, I am sure it will still be in the upper 80's at the time of Andrew's game and our practice. We had our CHHS spring awards presentation last night and everything went well. I found out last night that Lee has his learners permit so when your on the roads around CH be on the lookout for him.

Looks Like A Summer Week

It looks like summer is going to arrive this week with some warm temps, and a chance of t-stroms just about every day, and it's going to be a bit humid also. Andrew's team the Astro's won 14-4 yesterday over the Red Sox, Andrew had two hits in the game and they play the Phillies tuesday at 6pm at Ironbridge Park. We had Post 284 practice last night between the rain and t-storms, it was pretty tought throwing the ball because of the rain and mud on the ball, but I didn't hit anyone though. We are having the CHHS spring awards tonight at the school. MICKEY

A Busy Sunday

It looks like I am going to have a very busy sunday. This morning I am taking annd picking up Me Ma Ruth from church and then we will probably go out and eat luch somewhere. This afternoon I am going to see Andrew play in the the playoffs at 2pm at Ironbridge Park and this evening we have Post 284 baseball practice at Shepherd Stadium. Also between those things I have to get my excercise in. Well yesterday was no better for the college teams that I would have like to see win a game in the NCAA baseball tourmament, UVA, VCU, and ECU were all eliminated yesterday without winning one game. I did get to see the A-Braves beat Pittsburgh last night 1-0 in a thriller, the just don't seem to score when Kyle Davies is pitching. Well I have to run. MICKEY

NCAA Baseball

Well it looks like all the teams that I was rooting for in the NCAA baseball tournament lost there first game yesterday. UVA, ECU, and VCU all lost, UVA was the only higher seed that lsot of the three. I watched the Ga. Tech and Furman game last night on ESPNU, GA Tech won that game in x-tra innings. Hopefully all of those teams willl win today, it will be tough for any of them to come back and win one of the regionals because of the number of games they will have to play. The weather here in CH is cloudy this morning, there is a chance of t-storms this afternoon. Andrews game saturday has been postponed until 2pm sunday. MICKEY

Andrews little league team laot there final regular season game last night 13-9, Andrew did have three hits in the game though. Andrews team starts payoffs this saturday at 10am at Ironbridge Park.
