All-MSM Team Members Named For 2011
The All-Conference teams for the MSM were named last week and announced at this spring's sports awards. Joe McWard was named to the 1st team by unanimous choice. Lucas Durbin and Andy Voorhees were named to the 2nd team. All Mohawks can celebrate these awards because in a real way they respresent team success. Congrats to our All-MSM team members!
Barb Smith Wins Final GameDay Drawing
The final GameDay drawing, a bonus drawing to cover dates with no winners, was done on the Saturday of the regional championship. Barb Smith purchased the last ticket we sold this spring from Zach Rever, and told Coach M that she NEVER won. Well now she cannot say that again because the last ticket sold was also the last to win! Thanks to those who purchased tickets this spring and made the promotion as success for the 11th year. Next year's team will have to work hard to cover some great salesmen (Casey 106, Kenny 85, Memphis 62), and thanks again to Larry Boston who sold 92.
Mohawks Complete Season With Plenty of Excitement
The last 4 games of the Mohawks 2011 campaign were all decided in the last at bat, including two come from behind wins by the Mohawks in the senior game and the regional semi-final vs Raymond. There are many seasons where there won't be any games that have the kind of finishes we experienced vs Lutheran, Edinburg, Raymond and Nokomis. A great finish to the season Mohawks!
Sheila Unser Scores $100 In Game Day Drawing
Sheila Unser was the big $100 winner on the final regular Game Day drawing with number 687. We have added a bonus drawing for Saturday (regional championship game) with money from dates with no winners, another Mohawk Baseball supporter will win $100 on Saturday, which will be the final date for the 2011 Game Day program!
Aaron Borgic Tops Century Mark In Hits
Aaron Borgic got his 100th hit in the 1st inning of the Edinburg game and becomes the second Mohawk to join the Century Club this spring. The Century Club is made up of players who attain 100 in any of the following stats: Hits, RBI, Stolen Bases, Runs Scored, Pitching SO's and Innings Pitched (200 Innings). The Century Club link is always included on the records link at the bottom of the page, but can be accessed directly by CLICKING HERE. Kenny's 2 homeruns in the game may have overshadowed his performance on the mound, but he also moved into 8th all-time in career innings pitched and 10th all time in career strike-outs.
Kenny O'Brien Tops Century Mark in KO's
In what was otherwise an afternoon to forget, Kenny O'Brien reached a career milestone as he picked up his 100th career strikeout vs Pawnee. He reached the century mark in innings pitched earlier this month, which was a category added just this spring. Check out the entire list of Century Club members by clicking here.
First Brick Order Complete!
The first order for engraved memorial bricks was completed last week to allow for completion of the brickwork on the outside of the dugout. A total of 50 bricks came in a little at a time throughout the last month. John is going to leave some of the middle section open until after our formal dedication of the dugout this summer (July 30th, the Saturday after the Morrisonville Picnic). We'll continue to take orders until that day and then we'll finish that portion of the wall. Please help Coach M out by letting former players know about the bricks, many have missed the invitation and information and current players and fans will be the key to getting the word out before July.
Sample Bricks Delivered
Tim Turpin made a trip from Southern Indiana to drop of 4 sample bricks from Diamond Yard Bricks. The bricks will be used as part of the Dugout reconstruction project. Bricks will be available to any Mohawk player or fan, and are not limited to Baseball. The Mohawk Baseball Fanpage now has an event page dedicated to the dugout project as well Dugout Event Page.
Thanks to Tim for creating the samples and making the trip. The bricks will be put into place by John Fenelon who did much of the brickwork on the centerfield wall and completed the Cade Snyder Memorial in the pavilion.
