No winner in Legion title game; Margaretville, Walton co-champs

By John Bernhardt
The Walton and Margaretville Junior American Legion baseball teams just couldn’t beat Mother Nature. The two local powers tried for a second time to determine a Delaware League champion, but once again, Mother Nature had other plans. After the Queen of Nature used persistent rains to suspend the championship game last week, the two teams squared off once again last week Tuesday to determine who would be the 2009 kingpins.

Margaretville bests Stamford 8-4; Awaits possible Legion playoff nod

By John Bernhardt
Margaretville 8 - Stamford 4

Backlogged games and the news that the Roxbury team had folded kept the Margaretville nine guessing about their playoff chances. With Margaretville locked in a three-team playoff chase with Delhi and Stamford, the visitors knew their only chance to continue their season in the playoffs was to earn a victory over their Stamford hosts.

Roxbury Nine, Bovina Dairymen to step up to the plate for a worthy cause

Roxbury — As part of the Roxbury Sidewalk Festival, the Roxbury Nine will square off with the Bovina Dairymen in Roxbury’s Kirkside Park on Saturday, July 4 at 11 a.m.
But, there will be something very different about this particular vintage match. In fact, in the seventh-inning stretch, the clocks will fast forward from 1898 to July 4th 1939—the year Lou Gehrig delivered his history making speech to the world. It was the early summer of that year that Gehrig, the stoic Yankee first baseman was diagnosed with ALS —amyotrophic lateral sclerosis—a disease that was unknown at the time, but would ultimately bear his name.
