Bay City vs. Philadelphia

Gettysburg Game #4

Gettysburg Vintage Base Ball Festival

Plank Field, Gettysburg, PA


Bay City 30, Philadelphia 6


After laboring in the hot, Pennsylvania hillside for eight hours the previous day, the Independents arrived for the early match, and the first of back to back matches on a beautiful Sunday morning. There opponent on this day was the Athletic base ball club of Philadelphia, and a finer bunch of uniformed ballists you'll be hard pressed to find.  The Philly boys are known to joke, prod, and cajole one another like a tight band of brothers and taking the field with gents like those is  always a good time.


The Athletics won the bat toss with a unique style that was duly noted by the Bay City captain.  Having succeeded in the bat toss the Athletics chose to strike first, and took full advantage with a daisy cutter to the garden, a stolen base, and then a howitzer to the long field that saw their third striker make his second.  He would then make his third on another infield hit by the fourth striker in their order.  The advancement would end there though, as the fifth striker tried to employ a fair foul that was promptly gathered by the Bay City catcher, Branden "The Rope" Revette, who then fired a trademark shot to first sack to kill the striker and freeze the runners.  The sixth striker in the order then hit a sky ball to Doc Garcia at third, which he deftly handled, and the uprising was complete.


Now down 1 to 0, and not having scored in their past ten complete innings, the Bay Citys took to willow whipping with some serious style. The strikers of note for Bay City in the innings were Sean "Tanner" LeRoux, Alan "Kid" Garcia, Jason "Buttons" McInerney, Jeff "Silverback" Rahl, and Tom "Cat" LeRoux.  Each of these gents would tally, and all but Garcia would make their seconds on their garden gulping gashes.  Bay City would end their first with a lead at 5-1.


The second innings would begin with Bay City skunking the Athletics in order before picking up the parade around the pillows again for themselves.  This time the Independents would send thirteen gents to the stripe and make eight aces for our home town boys.  Jeff "Silverback" Rahl, Branden "The Rope" Revette, and Justin "Doc" Garcia would each make their second on their howitzers in the innings, but unfortunately Garcia would be lost for the entirety due to injury following his smash.  The Bay Citys had now lengthened their margin at 13-1.


In the third innings the Athletics would add a run when their captain singled, took his second due to theft, and tallied on a daisy cutter by their lead striker.  Bay City would still win the innings though, after plating 3 more of their own with Tanner LeRoux, Kid Garcia, and Cat LeRoux all crossing the dish.  Cat and Zachary "Tiny" Stedry each had muckle shots to the long field that saw them each make their second.


The Bay Citys would whitewash the Philedelphia contingent again in the fourth, and would send another dozen strikers to the mark for themselves gathering a harvest of seven more aces.  Aside from the tallying seven, strikers of note were Dave "Spare Parts" Ringler, and Jeremy "Schoolboy" Stedry who each made their seconds.  After four innings Bay City was now ahead 23-2.


The Independents would shuffle their defenders in the fifth innings, and the Athletics would take advantage of their opportunity scoring four runs after their first two hands were lost.  The Bay Citys would extend their streak of innings won however, making five more aces of their own thanks to three consecutive double making howitzers from the bats of Silverback Rahl, Cat LeRoux, and Spare Parts Ringler.


After the fifth innings, discussions were had about time restraints for the match, and it was agreed that the game would be complete upon the finish of the seventh innings.  The Bay Citys would then go on to whitewash the Athletics in their sixth, and seventh, plating only twice more in their sixth and forgoing their final at bats to bring the contest to a close at Bay City 30, and Philadelphia 6.


As mentioned previously, a finer, and more fun bunch of gentlemen you will never run across, and we in Bay City would love to play such club anywhere at anytime.  It is this type of comradarie, and love for the game that the Athletics employ that makes the game fun to play.

Brooklyn's Finest!

Bay City vs. Brooklyn

Game #3

Gettysburg Vintage Base Ball Festival

Meade Field, Gettysburg, PA

July 20, 2013


Bay City 0, Brooklyn 5



Bay City's third match of the day in Gettysburg's first day of vintage base ball action was against the Atlantic Base Ball Club of Brooklyn.  This match was set up by request of the Brooklyn lads, and was put down as a special match for the Festival.  Bay City was honored that such a fine club as the Atlantics would request such a match, and so they of course accepted.  The Independents would find out that indeed the Atlantics were Brooklyn's Finest.


The Bay City's would lose the bat toss, again, and took to striking first.  Tanner LeRoux would lose his hand on a fine play and throw from the Atlantic short stop, Dean Emma, to their first base tender.  The next striker Alan "Kid" Garcia, would make his first on a finely placed ball into the garden.  He then took his second by theft, but would be thrown out trying to take this third to record the second hand lost in the innings.  Jason "Buttons" McInerney would then record the final out for the innings on a sky ball that was bottled in style by the Atlantic's center fields man.  The first innings would be a portent of things to come, as the Bay Citys were to be whitewashed by the Brooklyns throughout the contest, despite placing nine runners into scoring position.


The Brooklyn lads would not, however, be skunked in their first pushing across one ace in the first innings, which would prove to be the winning margin.  They would also tally again in the second innings, and three more in the seventh to take the contest at 5-0.


The Bay Citys would remark that these Brooklyn gents were very practiced at their game, and had refined their skill so well that they had only rarely seen their equal.  Huzzah for the Atlantics!

Reunited and it Feels so Good!

Bay City vs. Flemington

Gettysburg Vintage Base Ball Festival

Game #2

Plank Field, Gettysburg, PA



Bay City 16, Flemington 14



The second match of the day for Bay City pitted them against the Neshanocks of Flemington, New Jersey.  In 2011 Bay City took part in a Midwest vs. East Coast Festival held in Cooperstown, New York, and was scheduled to play the Flemington gents in their last game, but alas injuries beset the club, and the match was not to be played.  On this day, the Independents would finally have the opportunity to complete that task.


The match began with another bat toss, which again the Bay City captain subsequently lost, and resulted with Bay City striking first in the match.  The ceremonial first pitch was thrown out by Eddie Plank, grandson of the famous major leaguer who bore the same moniker, and the owner of Gettysburg Eddie's.  After completing the ceremony, the Independents began striking with their usual efficiency starting with Sean "Tanner" LeRoux who promptly made his first with a fine daisy cutter.   LeRoux would move to second on a safety by Alan "Kid" Garcia, but Garcia would be forced at second when the third striker in the order, Jason "Buttons" McInerney made his first.  The larcenous McInerney would then take his second, and now Bay City had runners at second and third respectively.  LeRoux would tally on a long bound out  bottled by the right fields man from the bat of  the fourth striker, Jeff "Silverback" Rahl.  That would bring Tom "Cat" LeRoux to the plate with two hands down.  LeRoux was quite successful in this situation in the first match of the day coming through with several well struck balls, and this time would be no different as LeRoux slammed the onion into the garden driving home McInerney, and making his second with ease.  LeRoux would be left at second as the next hand would be lost, and the Bay City striking would conclude in the first with the Independents taking a 2-0 lead.


That lead would be short lived as the Neshanock would plate two runs of their own thanks to the striking, and base running of Peaches and Sledge.  Fine players that they are their nicknames also bring to mind what might have been a fine pairing of 1970s Soul Stalwarts, Peaches and Herb and Sister Sledge.  One can only dream of the poetry if those two acts had been united, or perhaps "Reunited" in a "We are Family" get together.  At any rate Peaches and Sledge were able to pair their striking and base running to "Shake their Groove Thing" and tie the match.


In the second innings the Independents would start things off with Dave "Spare Parts" Ringler making his first with a howitzer into the garden.  Ringler would then move to third on a blast from the youthful, left handed striking, Zachary "Tiny" Stedry, which put Stedry safely at second.  Ringler would then tally, and Tiny would move to third, after a ground ball to the third sacker saw Stedry's sibling, Schoolboy dead at first.  Tiny would then tally after a liner past third sack from the bat of Branden "The Rope" Revette had Revette make his first.  The tallying would end there for the Independents.


The Flemington lads would again match the Bay Citys when their lead striker in the innings, Gaslight, drove the ball deep into the garden and made his second.  Gaslight would then tally, tying the match thanks to a safety from the eighth Neshanock striker, Lowball.  After two innings of play the match was tied at 3-3.


Kid Garcia would open the third for the Independents with another garden variety and then take his second by theft.  Garcia would then tally on a howitzer from the bat of Buttons McInerney, and McInerney would move to second on a similar strike from Silverback Rahl.  The Independent contingent would both make their aces as Tom "Cat" LeRoux repeated his first innings performance with a muckle shot into the long field which had him take his second.  The next hand would be lost to the Flemington catcher, and then a brilliant bound catch at third would kill Ringler's hand while catching the Cat between the bases.  After a brief game of "Cat" and mouse LeRoux would lose his hand and complete the innings for Bay City.


Now trailing by three runs, the Neshanock would open their third innings with a sky ball from the bat of Peaches, which was bottled in style by the flamboyant, Mick, left fields man, Buttons McInerney.  The next striker, Southwork, would remarkably make his first by doing no work, and receiving an opportunity to walk to the bag thanks to an apparent bevy of bad balls.  Southwork would then have to scamper around the bags as Thumbs, the next striker in the order, mashed the apple between the left and center fielders and made his third.  Thumbs would tally as well after Sledge copied his script and made his third.  The fifth striker, Illinois, would make his first and Sledge would then make his ace.  Illinois would then make his second on another daisy cutter from Gaslight.  Thankfully, Illinois, would then attempt to take his third in a most larcenous way only to be rebuffed by the fine Bay City catcher, Branden "The Rope" Revette.  Insult would be added to injury, as Illinois was chided by Neshanock founder, Brad "Brooklyn" Shaw about the wisdom of stealing on a man nicknamed "Da Rope."    The Neshanock had once again knotted the contest at 6.


The Flemington gents would then skunk the Bay Citys in their next two frames, while adding two more of their own to enter the sixth innings with an 8-6 lead.  The Independents would break through however, due to the leadership of Alan "Kid" Garcia who would make his first, steal his second, and then tally from there on a howitzer from the bat of McInerney.  The next striker, Jeff "Silverback" Rahl would pound the pill beyond the reach of the center fields man, and make his second.   McInerney, sensing an opportunity to draw the contest to a tie, legged his way to home plate all the way from first base.   The Neshanock fielders made a throw to home in an attempt to kill McInerney and thwart his charge, but it was just late, as Buttons ground his way to a less then graceful stop and tallied the tying ace.  The Silverback would take his third on the throw to home, and would then tally on a daisy cutter from the bat of Tom "Cat" LeRoux.  Bay City now held a slender lead at 9-8.


Jersey would lead off the Neshanock sixth with a clean single.  The next striker in the order, Lowball, would lose his hand to a fine bound catch by the Independent's short stop, Sean "Tanner" LeRoux.  LeRoux would then run down Jersey, who was caught between the bases, and complete a neat twin killing.  The bases empty, and two hands down, the Flemington's would then mount a comeback with a daisy cutter to the infield that saw Mick make his first.  Mick then made his third on a similar play from the bat of Doc.  Doc would then take his second by theft, and Mick would tally after, "Just Chris", would walk his way to first advancing all runners.  Doc, and Chris would each make their ace as well when Peaches made his third on a colossal clout into the garden, and then pulled up at third.  Southwork would strand Peaches at third after bounding out to the catcher, and ending the two out uprising.  After six innings the Neshanock had the lead again at 11-9.


In the seventh the Bay Citys would knot the contest thanks to back to back smashes into the garden by Justin "Doc" Garcia, and Dave "Spare Parts" Ringler.  Each gent made his second on their respective strikes, with Garcia tallying on Ringler's clout, and Ringler tallying on Jeremy "Schoolboy" Stedry's safety just two strikers later.


The Independents would skunk the Flemingtons in the seventh and eighth, while tallying five more times in the eighth innings themselves sending ten strikers to the line with back to back howitzers from the bats of Rahl, and Cat LeRoux doing much of the damage.  The Bay Citys now held sway over the Neshanock at 16-11.


The Bay Citys would be whitewashed in the ninth, but only after a close play at home plate as Sean "Tanner" LeRoux attempted a steal of home.  The Neshanock would now attempt a comeback with Chris making his first, and another infield daisy cutter from Peaches put him at second.  Chris and Peaches would each move up to third and second respectively when Southwork bounded out to Bay City's McInerney in the left field.  The runners would be held at their bases when Thumbs would lose his hand thanks to a charging, bound catch from the mercurial short stop, Sean "Tanner" LeRoux.  Sledge would then hammer the onion into the garden and tally both Chris and Peaches, while making his second for himself.  Illinois would bring Sledge to tally with a two out safety of his own.  Illinois would then take his second after Gaslight would stroll his way to first thanks to the third base on bad balls of the day for the Flemingtons.  The match would be ended there however, when Jersey saw his hand killed by a bound catch in the right garden made by Tom "Cat" LeRoux.


Thus the exciting contest was drawn to a close with Bay City taking their second of the day at 16-14 over the fine, Flemington nine.   A fantastic contest, with a great deal of excitement leaves one wanting and hoping that perhaps these clubs can meet again.
