Lynd out



McCauley's Terry Lynd is close but ...no cigar ... as first baseman Dennis Wiebe of Brandon Cloverleafs gets the throw in time for the out.

Smoke break






Dale Lowes of McAuley Blazers, catcher for the North Division in the MSBL All-Star game at Virden, takes a smoke break during the early innings of the 15-15, six-inning game.  

Bruce Bremer appears to be the player with him in the photo.

Langston stretch





McAuley pitcher Jon Langston extends his arm just enough to tag Hamiota's Brent Montague on a play off a soft grounder. McAuley edged the Red Sox 5-4 in the playoff encounter

Coppicus swings







Jerry Coppicus, the designated hitter for McAuley, gets set to swing against Hamiota's Glennis Scott while catcher Bob Young awaits the pitch. Coppicus, who managed a single in three trips, is considering retirement. The 38-year-old veteran couldn't pick a better time as the Blazers won their first MSBL crown defeating the Red Sox 6-1.
